Update

Just spent about an hour in the credit union changing some accounts around.  Paying off the mortgage and switching the account for the truck to my account means Jay’s account is finally close.  I also ordered checks with my new address because I will change my driver’s license and Truck registration on Friday.

Well I finished reading the June Large print Readers Digest magazine, did 8 Fill It In  puzzles.and started Jeffery Deaver’s novel The Steel Kiss.  

The telephone man put my land line in today   Now I have to change my answering machine recording may be tomorrow. Well that’s it for now take care

Finding A New Place

Tomorrow is the day that after over 40 some years I will no longer own a home.  I will miss my last one, all the room, the wildlife, and my neighbors but my life is changing.  Steps are a problem, my stamina is slowing down, and I find myself growing more upset over the things I can no longer do.

I now live with my daughter and am trying to help her with some of the domestic goddess chores that she has trouble keeping up with because she works so many hours.

This morning she worked with the flowers she had bought.

One large pot of purple petunias now hang on the back porch.

This give me the job of pulling the dead blossoms so more will bloom.

On the porch floor are the following.

Snapdragons of different color will soon be in bloom.

Like most cats she loves boxes.  Lilly another feline is sleeping in the front window.  I will get a picture of her soon.

Cindy and I spent time in the garage today going through boxes checking the food supple that came from my house.  We still have a lot to find room for but as is our mantra (baby steps) will solve the problem.

Today is cool and raining off and on.

I’ll close for now but I’ll be back to bug.

 

New Adventure

Good Afternoon. on this 2nd day of June.  Sun is shining, a slight breeze that makes sitting in the swing with Brandy a pleasant thing to be doing.

Yesterday we took care of one problem.

This is what I moved in with.

This was the solution yesterday.

This was the solution yesterday.

True it doesn’t make the wrinkles go away but it sure makes me feel younger.  I think I have to get out in the suns more or at least wear lipstick so I don’t look like a round ball of putty with a dimple.

I have been here a week and am slowly putting things away so I can find them and not have to say it is in a box somewhere.

I ordered a land line to be installed next Tuesday.  No fancy stuff just something that I’m more comfortable using.

Adam my old neighbor (bless his heart)  is gathering my mail at the dome and I’ll get up there later to pick it up.

I sent the Directv equipment back today so the next project is to notify All N 1. Culligan, Schwans, my doctor, my DDS., my foot doctor, and financial people that I have moved.   I’m sure there are more to inform but right now my plate is full.

This  is my last picture of the berm at the old house.

The new owner will have to weed it out.

Now I know why people hate to move!!!   I just  keep saying this is a new adventure.

 

June The First Of 2016.

It is the afternoon of the first day of June.  The news today is that we will close on 6-6-16 three days earlier than originally scheduled.   I’m still trying to get some type of order to my bedroom.  Cindy has helped me notify almost all of my utilities of my move.  This is not an easy task these days what with recorded announcements, delays with music playing, and one live person after another trying to sell you something or  explaining that they can’t help you but they will connect you with someone who can who then repeats the process again.

Well I thought I would show you the house I had built many years ago that is down two houses and across the street from here.

My Father added an attached garage and a large family room on the back.

The  house that my daughter lives  in started as almost a twin but it too had an addition added.

This was built right after my old place.

Cindy wants to put hanging flowers on the back porch.  We will take Shepherd’s hooks and hang my feeders for the birds on them because I brought seed and suet cakes with me. Cindy will fill the bird bath also.  Of course this will all take time but we will get there.

Brandy, Spirit, and I are doing good but Molly is still a bit shy about the other two cats.  It will take time but she will come around.  Well this is all for now but never fear I will return.  Have a great week!

 

 

Enjoying The Holiday Weekend

Good Morning,.  Yesterday Cindy, Dave, and I went back to the dome to pick up the last of the dining Room chairs, do a look around for the condition of the rooms, then  take the cardboard and garbage cart down to the road for pick up tomorrow.

The Snowball bush is now in full bloom in the front yard.

I have pictures of the berm, the bush that hides the utility  equipment on the front of the dome.  Adam mowed my front yard seeing I sold my tractor to Sherm.  Thank you Adam!

I have a lot of boxes to go through, papers to file, and drawers to organize.  But my clothes are all back on hangers in the closet and I’m getting used to my new temporary home. Brandy and I go out and sit on the swing and look around.

Across the street is this huge old tree and I sit admiring it. aAcross the street is this glorious old tree and I sit and stare at it.

Brandy Is still in love with the fenced in yard and run all around the house.

Molly came out of my bedroom this morning but ran back when she heard Cindy’s cats hiss. Oh well it will take time for them to get along.

It is quiet here even though the house is on a corner lot with a bit of traffic.  I look across the street and see the first house I ever had built so I’m not in a strange place.  I’ll get a picture of that next.  Well for now enjoy the rest of the Memorial  Day weekend and we will visit again soon.

 

Who Is Too Old?

Momma’s corner has found her new home.  Actually It looks like a furniture warehouse at the moment but we will get it under control.  I have made friends with the cats and will let mine out of the bedroom in a bit.  Brandy has a blanket on the living room couch right now but ae soon as my dressers are in place we will see about making my bedroom comfortable for her too.

We moved the swing down and David put blocks under the legs to make it higher.  Now we have a place to sit outside. The yard is fenced in and Brandy .Is loving being able to run with no leash.

So there is a lot to do but we will try the baby step routine and we will get it under control.  Cindy has to work so it may take a little time but at least the dome is cleared thanks to all the friends and family.  I have a closure date in about two weeks.

It has a stressful challenge that isn’t over yet but shit things like this push you to stay young..

Momma’s Corner Is Going Bye Bye!

Good morning.  Momma’s Corner is moving about 40 miles done the road.  It will be active at the new location but I still maybe here at the old homestead for a few days.  I will have Cindy update me on every thing until I’m there myself.  So I’ll be talking to you.  Momma

We Are Getting There

Good morning!  It has been a very busy last two days.  On Saturday the crew was Cindy, friend Jimmy, Les, Anne, Les’ friend Greg, Michael, and Darlene.  Boxes were made, things  that were not going to storage went to the road out front.  If people came up to the house we told them about the things like the sofa, a matichng chair, the buffet and hutch, the matching dining room table, the three other tables I had available,  the table &chairs for sitting out on the porch. and the list went on.  Now these were all donated but the important thing is they are gone in two days.

This was the beging of the packing from the living and dining room.

This was the beginning of the packing from the living and dining room.

The kitchen

The cupboards are all cleared and everything is packed except from a batch of stuff on the counter of the pass through.

My bedroom

My bedroom

The dressers are gone, the closet is empty but I do have to finish the things on the floor.

The bathroom is cleared except for the small plastic tub on the counter with the things I’ll need until I leave on Friday.

The utility room is cleared except for some cleaning things I’ll need.  Most every thing is packed in the basement but it does need to be taped and labeled.

So that is where we stand  and I got to get up and get busy.  But first I must say a great big thank you to the crew because without them I never would have survive.

 

Baby Steps Turn Into A Crawl

If you follow Face book (I don’t) you already know I’m in a bind.  I have to be out f my house by next Friday.  Yep it is sold and I’m scrambling to get settle with my daughter for a  bit until my son is ready to take me in. We have started packing.

But have a lot more to do.

But have a lot more to do.

I have a buffet and hutch for free just come and get it,.  I also have the matching table.  I had my sofa taken care of but that fell through so it is available.  I will try to have a household/ garage sale for a couple of days but I don’t have much time.  I have help coming Saturday to get me packed up.  But the biggest problem is finding someone to take those big items and clearing the garage.  Am I sweating it –yep but I have no choice.  I’ll keep you posted. .

 

Back To Words

Well I lost my pictures again but here is where I’m at.  I have packed threes boxes of CDs, 2 boxes of DVDs, and so far one box of pictures.  I also got out and mowed half of the “back forty”.  .   Right now I’m tired and I’m giving up for today. Take Care.
