Moving day is getting closer and closer! I'm not looking forward to the move at all. I have been at the house all week cleaning, trying to get the place ready to move in. I took a couple of boxes down as well as my plant stand. Of course, my plant stand hasn't held any plants for about a year. They all died on me. I think I could kill silk plants for that matter. My plant stand usually holds pictures, figurines and nik nax to collect dust! LOL I am making the Florida room into my computer room. It will also hold Mom's refrigerator as a back up with ours in the kitchen. I will also have my sewing machine out there. It is not a heated room, so we are going to have some kind of space heater out there. Kerosene heaters are a little too pricy for our budget. The only thing that I don't like about the house is that the bedrooms are all very small. We won't even be able to get all our bedroom furniture into our bedroom. My dresser will have to go into the "guest" bedroom.
The kitchen, however, has more space than my current kitchen. The best part is, the cabinets in the utility room are huge, so that will be my pantry. I will take my two cabinets from here and use them in the computer room there. I'll have Mom's washer and dryer which are much newer than mine.
I was packing a few things up from the "sitting room" here, which is what I took to the house already. Salem decided he was going to help me pack. Some help! He just wanted to take up space in the boxes! LOL
I took this shot of the moon this past Saturday. The "slash" marks at the bottom and right are actually tree limbs from the tree across the street from me. I knew that once the moon got any higher, it wouldn't be as large. This is the best moon shot I've gotten yet.
This is an older picture. About 2 years old. I took it with my Kodak Easyshare. My friend, Glenna, had asked me to e-mail her some of my "coloring book" pictures of Blackford County. She is a registered nurse, but she is currently working with children who live in a "home". The children are there for various reasons. Abuse is the main reason. She printed out the pictures that I sent her and took them to work with her for the kids to color. The kids range in age from about 6 to about 17. She is, in a way, a teacher. After her son died, this is the first thing that has made a difference in her life. When the children do well with lessons and tests, she gives them the coloring sheets, or she has also bought several used movies and takes them in for the children to watch. Most of them have never seen a Disney movie and absolutely love watching the ones that she brings in.
This is the Mothodist Church in a little village southeast of Hartford City called Millgrove. It's very tiny. I don't think that there are any businesses there any more. There used to be a feed mill and a cabinet business there, but the last time I went through there, I didn't see anything but houses, probably less than 30 houses.
Gonna get off here and get my beauty sleep! It doesn't work, but it sounded good! I would like to know where the term "beauty sleep" ever came from. Maybe if I call it "rich sleep", I'll wake up with more money in the bank. What do you think? LOL
Everybody take care and have a wonderful day. Today is my son, Michael's 15th birthday. Wish him a good one!
