Pumpkin Party!

We got a chance to christen our dining room and kitchen with a pumpkin carving party on Monday night! It’s a little early to be carving, but the only chance we had where all of us were free to do it. Look out newly done dining room and kitchen – the pumpkins have arrived!

Hicks Orchard!

Saturday the sun finally came out after days of dreariness. I wanted to get out and do something other than working on Radiance Manor. While I do love doing all the things to the house, I don’t necessarily want to do it all the time, you know? Besides – with gorgeous fall weather you just [...]

Furnaces and furniture

Busy week house wise. We have had so many people in and out of the house this week! The furnace people were in for 3 days. First was getting rid of what I called the behemoth:

 

While it would have been nice to put off getting a new boiler for a year, this [...]

Fall foliage

Fall is in the air! Other than being warm, of course. The leaves have hit their peak now.

 

So love the colors of fall.

Not exactly sure what is up with this squirrel. It’s not really a fall decoration and he is [...]

As if I weren’t busy enough!

This has been some weather this week! We hit 78 yesterday and the overnight low was around 60, so that meant biking for breakfast!

Happy bike face!! We haven’t been on the bikes in 2 weeks and it felt good. Of course, we now live 1 mile from the coffee shop instead of [...]

Cleaning out the old

This moving thing is getting old already. We have been going to the old house and finishing up clearing out old stuff. You know, you just don’t realize how much stuff you have until you have to move it. Not to mention that I was feeling good that we had pared down – and we [...]

Settling in

We made it to the other side of the weekend’s move! We did have some help packing and unpacking, but the moving part was by ourselves. Thank goodness for being more fit than the last time we moved 8 years ago! John also made a point that he is never moving again and I am [...]

Friday and moving weekend!

It’s Friday! Not too much is blooming in my garden right now and I didn’t have time for pictures, but I did get a couple downtown of the mums:

Now that we don’t have a leaky porch roof anymore, I put out my little scarecrow:

Saturday is supposed to be [...]

Random thoughts.

————————————————

You all know how I love the NFL. When the Ray Rice thing came out originally months ago – I gave it the serious side eye because while we didn’t see what went on in the elevator at that time, it was obvious this woman was hit hard enough [...]

No more second job

I had accepted that second job a few weeks ago. When I first interviewed with the company, I watched an introductory video and I was a little uncomfortable with the owner, but I figured it was just some nervousness about working for a new place and all that and figured I would give it a [...]
