07 Feb 7 on 7: let’s do this
I’m completely and utterly happy to see you.
No really. I neglect and ignore this little space on the internets and I’m thrilled when all four of you actually show up when I occasionally have something to say.
Not that I have anything to say.
At the moment.
But Kim decided we should have another go at a monthly photo project and I decided that I should get off my ass and join in.
She’s a good influence on me.
So ya. 2017. It was busy, to say the least. We bought a new (old) (like circa 1881, old) house, sold our old (much newer) house and did it all within 60 days. Understand that I’d been in the old (newer) house for seventeen years and that meant there was over eleventy-million years worth of crap to sort through, organize, keep, toss, donate and otherwise foist onto whoever would take said crap. FUN TIMES. But we made it, AND I actually found my Christmas decorations literally just in time to have our first Christmas here.
And here we are. Hello, 2018. I’m ready for you.
That’s actually a bit of a lie. After ending the year with all of that crazy activity, I’ve pretty much been in my pajamas for most of January.
One of the first things I did when we moved in here was to set out some bird feeders.
I may have left a note for our birds at the old house, a bit of a forwarding address situation.
You don’t know.
And squirrels. MAN DO WE HAVE SQUIRRELS.
There are walnut trees at the back of the property and at least ten to fifteen squirrels in the yard at any given moment. It’s crazy.
(We won’t discuss the mouse situation the old Owner left behind. Let’s just say it’s been handled and leave it at that).
Now, no sooner had we moved in here and settled in, my girl also found a place in the City and moved right on out. Brat. Seriously, who said she could grow up and behave like an adult? Who said she could???
All kidding (and worry) aside, I’m quite happy for her. And pretty damn proud.
These were on her table in her new place …
Man, I love that girl.
And that’s it for me. We’re already into February and I’m spending less and less time in pajamas or trackies so here’s hoping I have more to share next month.
Possibly more squirrels.
You don’t know.
Kim is up next with her seven from January. She is one helluva talented woman so make sure you stop by and see what she’s been up to.
