The Joy of Moving, Part 3

the last two glasses to be packed.
(I had to keep my Labatt Blue Hockey glass, so my husband also got to keep his Chicago Bears Glass)

Well hi there! I haven't given an update on the move recently but I will be getting the keys for the new place in a couple days so no time like the present! Progress has been made. The kitchen is almost completely packed but I want to spend the time really cleaning everything since it seems the kitchen and baths are the rooms that need the most attention. My studio is mostly packed, lots of odds and ends. Bathroom and linen closet are completely packed except for the things we use every day. The attic, ah, the attic, making progress there, too. It should be finished before the big move. My biggest push now is to get the baby clothes to the children's resale shop, books to the resale bookstore and a Salvation Army Truck pick up scheduled for everything else we are giving up. I hope to schedule the pick up for next week, after garbage pick up but before the big move that way all the garbage that needs to go out can and all the things we don't need can be gone before our moving date arrives(no unnecessary temptation to save anything!)

Once the house is finished I can move onto to the poor neglected yard and garden beds. I feel so sad for them, I have neglected them in the past month and a half and, quite honestly, for some unknown reason, weeds grow much faster than plants, it's a mess! Still have a mass of pretty flowers but they are intertwined with weeds. The one thing I have been able to do is rip out the squash vines since they were dying anyway. The only other outdoor accomplishment was to work on gathering up all the things we stored in the garage and throwing away things that needed to be gone(it's amazing to me how the garage became a catchall, especially to my husband. Sadly, I had a wool rug in the garage that needed to be cleaned (I didn't know where to take it so I put it off!) While in the garage it became mildewed and now will be making it's way to the curb for garbage pick up this week.:o(

Onto a more joyful matter, while doing all this menial labor, I have been planning/designing ornaments in my head. A question for you, What is your favorite character from "Alice in Wonderland"? Leave me a comment, so I can use my mind designing an adorable ornament!

It's amazing how much we manage to stuff into a home!! It's only when we move theat we realise what horders we are!!
My favourite character is the White Rabbit...I'm lat, I'm late. I think he must be related to me somewhere along the line, lol.
Have a great weekend!!
