Last Post Before I Move

This is my last post before I move to Blowing Rock (near Boone) to Blackberry Cottage in the Woods.  I am excited about the move and would like the moving part to be over.  I am already tired and my back is killing me. It will be worth it in the end though.  I am already planning my spring garden and thinking about flowers.

As my move date moves closer though, the date my daughter reports for her deployment to Iraq is ever closer too.  She reports the 6th of Feb and will be gone for about a year.  I pray for her safety for what she will be doing and for all the soldiers in that whole area of the world.

My Last Week in TN

It is 6 days until I move to Blowing Rock NC (close to Boone NC).  My last weekend in Tn has been very strange.  It is very quite -- my daughter is out of town, my grandson is staying over at a friends so I am here by myself.  I did some sorting and packing, but I couldn't shake this sadness I had all day.  Finally as the evening rolled around I remembered my mother's birthday is Sunday.  She would have been 76 years old.  Once I remembered the date, I sorted through my memories of her and was at peace.  These are pics of her when she was young.  Yes, we are from Hazard, KY.

12 days and counting

It is 12 days until I move to my little cabin in the woods.  I am excited! One of things I collect are red and white crochet hot pads like these I found at a yard sale.

14 Days

It is 14 days until I move to my cabin in the woods.  I have all my utilities taken care of now.  I'm all set my for grand-daughter and husband to move my stuff from TN to NC.  I still have much to do.

This is an apron I found when shopping at the longest yard sale a couple of years ago.  I can just see it hanging from one of those tree branches in the kitchen.

16 days and counting

Only 16 more days until I move to my little cabin in the woods.  I am so excited and I have to say a little scary too.  I don't know anyone in Boone.  I'm sure it won't take me long to get in the grove of the area though.

It is 24 days and counting

It is 24 days now until I move to Boone NC. I have closed the beloved-creations website but will still have items for sale under http://belovedcreations.etsy.com/ so check out my items on that site. I will only be offering a few things at a time.

It is also 26 days until my daughter Teresa goes to Iraq. I pray for her and all the rest of our soldiers safty and healthy return. May this war be over soon.
