I’m exhausted and I ache all over! I’m getting too old for this. The mind says yes but the body is definitely in conflict.
The moving truck arrived at 9:30 a.m. yesterday…right on time. There were only two men to unload so Mr. PQ decided to step in and give them a hand. That’s him in the right foreground. And can you see Mac on the grass? He’s supervising…until he spotted a squirrel who kept him entertained most of the day.
The weather forecast called for rain but thank goodness it held off until everything was unloaded from the truck. Once again, the boys took care and laid down the protective floor coverings.
This is the sitting room or den and the room behind it is the dining room. Every room in the house will be painted and the remaining carpeting on the stairs and in the one upstairs bedrooms and hallway will be taken up in the next couple of weeks.
The living room is right across the hall. The beige on the walls that you see is actually the backing from the vinyl wallpaper that was there. I removed all the vinyl when we were here a couple of weeks ago but didn’t have either the time or tools to remove the backing and border. Every light fixture in the house will also be replaced in due course.
Above is the built in china cabinet in the dining room and...
The pantry is just off the kitchen. All the hardware and drawer pulls are original to the house. Eventually the flooring and counter tops will also be replaced.
It was a very long day for everyone. The last item was unloaded from the truck at approximately 6:30 p.m. All three of us were in bed by 8:30 p.m. Yesterday was spent trying to make some semblance of order to the mounds of boxes and furniture. The kitchen is about halfway done which is a great relief.
Slowly but surely we’ll get there. I can’t tell you how much I miss my stitching and quilting. It’ll be a while yet before I’ll be able to unpack and set up my studio because there is so much else to be done in the interim.
This post would not be complete without sending you all a big hug of thanks for all your support and comforting words. I can’t wait for the time to come where I can take the time to thank you all individually once again. But I do want you to know that your caring comments really mean a lot to me.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
