Waiting on the sun...

Well, we are mostly moved in...  We kept the railings off of the front porch until the movers had left.  Rich got busy that following week and finished it...

 But I am getting ahead of myself...  Like any move, we had a couple of mishaps...unfortunately our mishap ended up at the bottom of our steps..






 As the movers were carrying Rich's dresser down the steps the guy on the bottom slipped...  The moving company is making it all better...they have a guy going to the other house next weekend and will fix the floor, the wall (no photo, but the bottom guy ended up with his shoulder and head going through the drywall) and the banisters..  The mover is fine...he was very upset though and hardly spoke the rest of the move.  You can believe they were very careful when they delivered the furniture..


 The next day DirecTV delivered and installed the satellite and set up the tv in the living room and sewing room.


And look what we saw when the truck left!!

That DirecTV  Dirigible was headed from St Louis where they were covering the World Series to Texas for the games down there...  I'm not sure, but it must be rare to have the dirigible and the truck in the same photo...

And back on ground...

I had these waiting for me...


UGH!  And that's just the kitchen...



This was the master bedroom...  The bed is set up only because the movers did that...

Rich and I returned to the "other" house the following day and our second daughter surprised us by putting the whole bedroom away... sheets, bedspread, pillows on the bed and all the clothes safely tucked away in the closet...  What a nice surprise it was when we got back...

The shop went up the day before the movers delivered..  it was a very tight schedule...



This the view out our front door now...  the shop is the building on the right...  Rich is working to get insulation, electric and heat in there... 

The house is finally put together...drapes are hung..some pictures are up...we can find dishes and food and towels...

And now I am just waiting on the sun... I plan to take some good photos of each room so you can see where we live now...

Oh...the BASR?  Here are some photos...

the shelves are right inside the door...ready for books and pretties...

I put up the thread rack all by myself...

Tv is working and the drawers are empty..

This is the main set up... my machine will face the windows...

and shelves are ready for fabric...
Now...If I could just talk three friends into coming by this Thursday to help me unpack...I would feed them lunch!!

YAY...incoming photos!!! Looking good so far and can't wait for more. Sorry about the mishap but glad the mover is doing his best to get things right for you. Heck...if I lived nearby, I'd come over and help even if you didn't provide lunch!
