Honey, I’m home!

“On the Road”
First layover at Wickenburg, AZ.    We pulled up to our new address in Sacramento Saturday about 5:30 PM and found our grandsons awaiting our arrival.  The next day was Sunday and they unloaded everything off the truck; and, are progressing a pace.  The bedrooms are set up as are the living room, dining area, family room works in progress.  Today Loyal hung clothes in the closets and put up the linens.  There were many surprises inside the house as Richard had accomplished even more than he reported from his “punch” list.  It really is like having a brand new house!  Everything is new and just sparkles.  

We are still at our daughter’s home as the new refrigerator hasn’t been delivered and there isn’t any wireless nor TV as yet.  Also, we are spraying for ants (which we saw outside) this week.  I think we’ll probably actually ‘move in’ next week some time.  Meanwhile I’m enjoying myself in Christopher’s room!  

I will have photos to show you in the next post.  I found packets from both Jane EB and Fox in my mail box, with lovely tatted tokens.  Loyal is very possessive of HIS.  I think it is so nice that he REALLY appreciates tatted pieces sent just to him...I was a bit concerned about him as he had some angina pain when we arrived late at night in Mojave.  But he does work himself up into quite a state from time to time.

Little Zella is growing so big so quickly!  I have new photo’s of her to upload also.  I admit I have not done any tatting on the trip.  Just not enough room in the cab of that GMC truck for 2 people with a cat crate in between.  Pippa loves the new window ledges that she can look out and the full length slider into the back yard.  One happy kitty!  

Oh, BTW, I WILL have a NEW e-mail address as soon as wireless is installed.  I’m going to try to get the same url but you know how that goes.  We changed vendors as Loyal had had it with Comcast.  I sent a notice out for the temporary addy to those in my address book.  

I love the area.  Wide boulevards and a lot of old growth trees.  We had both an old growth plum (the fruit is delicious) and persimmons.  I smell cookies in my future.  :>)

Put the kettle on, bake the persimmon cookies (never heard of them before) and I'll be over for a cuppa. SO pleased you love the new home.

Congratulations for having made the move so very well. I hope your new house FEELS like home shortly.

You'll have plenty of time to tat when you get settled. Just worry about essentials now.

Sounds like things are progressing and, in no time at all, all of you will feel totally "at home" in your new place. I've been thinking about you and hoping all was going well.
