Moving day has come and gone and we’ve finally arrived in Nova Scotia. Thank goodness that part is over!
What a long day Monday was. The movers arrived at about 10 a.m. and after taking stock of all that was to be moved, the four men started right in.
We had a light dusting of snow the day before but that didn’t seem to bother them one bit. They laid down protective blankets so as not to dirty or scratch the floors.
The moving van was huge. All our belongings barely took up a third of the truck which simply amazed me. It was like they were putting together a jigsaw puzzle the way they squeezed things into the tiniest spaces. Everything was wrapped in protective blankets except for the boxes and I think they must have used close to 250 blankets.
Piece by piece, our belongings were loaded onto the truck.
Never did I think I would see the day when I could see through the walls of boxes.
Slowly but surely they were loaded onto the moving truck. Poor Mac. He just didn’t get it and preferred to stay outside on the back deck while they were emptying the main floor. Even his bed was put on the truck!
And the house became emptier…
And emptier…and cleaner too!
By 5:30 p.m. it was all over and the house was bare.
Friends of ours who own a B & B invited us to spend our last night with them. Mr. PQ, Mac and I crashed not long after we arrived.
We were on the road by 3:30 a.m. It turned out to be a glorious day for driving…clear, bright and sunny. Although it had been our intention to make the drive in two days, because of the weather, we decided to press onward and crossed over into Nova Scotia around 3:00 p.m.
Just up ahead…
I can see it…
There it is…
Our new home!
Two hours later we arrived at our house in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia where the temperature was in the mid 40’s and ‘balmy’ for this time of year.
Everything was just as we had left it 9 days before. After 15+ hours of driving, we were in bed not long after arriving.
Our furniture arrives on Saturday and I wish we were more ready for it. There’s still a lot of painting and cosmetic work to do before we actually take the time to unpack anything but the essentials. We’re hoping to make a huge dent in our “to do” list over the next little while.
Because of all that’s been going on in our lives over the last couple of months with respect to our move, I must apologize for the fact that there will be no FFF (First Friday Freebie) this month. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will have my studio set up by the 20th, in time for Block 6 of Raggedy & Friends BOM.
So, we’re here…in body for sure…but I think my mind found it’s way into one of the boxes. And with my luck, it’ll probably be in the last one to be unpacked! *wink*
Honestly, I’d rather be stitching!
