Anticipation! – We are awaiting our first really big snowstorm. It’s predicted to start this afternoon and end Tuesday morning. I would have preferred if it waited until AFTER we moved in mid-February but I’m grateful that the weather has been kind to us so far. Predictions are all over the place so anywhere from 6 to 18 inches. Yikes! The new house has considerably less to shovel. Yay!
At the end – We are in the last two weeks prior to our move. This is when you try to use up any food you have on hand and try not to stock up on anything. We are lucky that we have had possession of the new house for a month so we have been able to gradually move a lot of things. Professional movers will take all the big furniture and the beloved husband’s workshop tools (we’re old for that kind of lifting) but it’s easier for us to pop a lamp in a bucket and cover with a towel to transport ourselves. Otherwise we’d need a ginormous amount of boxes and paper to wrap everything carefully.
Murphy visits here – I’ve been packing things that I won’t need in the near future. I’m not going to do fancy cooking or even much cooking so I packed a lot of my kitchen things. I have already missed some items I packed. They would have come in handy. Soon I’ll be down to ordering take-out instead of cooking.
A new neighbor – The girlfriend (ladyfriend?) of one of our neighbors has moved in. Lots of moving trucks. Hopefully this one will work out for him. He is my age and I admire his gumption to get back on that horse after a failed marriage in late life.
Creativity – My cat Morgan is in a splint with weekly bandage changes. This past week the vet tech put a whale on her bandage. I’m not sure if Morgan is excited about it but it’s interesting!
So how was your week?
