We’ve moved and we’re back. We had three snowstorms moving week. A large one (26 inches) before and two consecutive smaller ones after the move. It complicated everything and the beloved husband was running between two houses clearing driveways. I’ve had it with winter. Done! Fini!
Is it just me? When friends move, they position their existing furniture and everything looks lovely. Maybe there is a piece of furniture or two they don’t use but for the most part they don’t have to start from scratch. My stuff never fits quite right. It may be doable for a time but the proportions are off and eventually much of it gets replaced by something selected for the spot. The same is true this time. Anyone need a gorgeous dining room table and chairs?
Box heaven – Gracie (my cat) is in heaven (not literally). There are boxes everywhere. We have broken most of them down and found a local place where we can deliver them for recycling. To try to incorporate into our local recycling would take weeks of cardboard in the garage.
Speaking of the garage – It will be a while before the cars fit. I forgot how dang cold a car is that sits outside overnight in 20 degree temperatures. Yikes! Froze anything liquid in the car except my hand sanitizer. I guess that’s a good test of alcohol content.
Movers are a different breed – Many are nomads picking up jobs as they come along. It’s good paying when you get a move. The tip makes it worthwhile. The crew that moved us was eclectic. One guy came from Queens or the Bronx in New York City, not sure which but it was very pronounced. I liked him. He was direct. When I asked about masks, he said, “Lady I can’t do this work with a mask on.” (You really should hear that with the accent.) And so it was. I was sure I was gonna die from covid but so far (we are a week out) nothing.
So how was your week?
Author’s note: I was off-line for two days and when I came back on, WordPress was wonky. (Maybe that was my punishment for being inactive.) I didn’t receive notices of posts in my email and my reader is always spotty. I’ve been working to catch up. Also no new pictures this week but I found the box with my camera. That’s a good sign!
