Well, my friends, we had a LONG weekend.
Saturday dawned nice and clear as Keith left to go get the big truck.
And we had a pair of interested observers from next door watching at the gate.
Abby and I went about doing chores as we normally do.
And then the big truck got there, and we started.
(That's Madison and Jax)
My son Jim and his oldest, Chris, did the heavy lifting, God Bless them.
Jaxton carried out load after load.
Jacob had had a soccer game that morning, so he, mom Amy and Paiton were late to the party.
Here are the boys taking a break.
(Jacob, Nathan, Jax and Chris)
DIL Amy was kind enough to run the vacuum for us at the new place.
We had barbecue for lunch, as we did two trips with the big truck.
Then the boys and I went to Pizza Hut for dinner,
and all four spent the night, playing video games on the
tv in the basement family room. They all slept down there, too, in sleeping bags on the floor.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch....
These are the eggs we have gotten in the last week and a half.
They are all still lovely, though that is the last duck egg.
I just wanted you all to know that we survived the big part of the move.
Tomorrow, Keith, Chris and I will move one more big load in
a rented truck, and then we will be left cleaning out and
rearranging things that we are going to put in the next sale.
I have started cleaning the house, and will paint starting next week sometime.
We are continuing to put away, here at the new house.
Tomorrow afternoon, I will run Chris back down to Garnett,
but with our thanks for a job very well done.
We could not have accomplished this move without the
help of son Jim and his whole family, because
we are OLD, (laughing).
Keith's daughter Amber, sil Jesse, and boys Jace and
Carson also moved on Saturday, into their latest flip, so they had a big day, too.
We hope to have them over soon.
I miss our little house... I miss the ponds, the frogs... everything...
but guess what? This neighborhood was platted on a farm, and there is a pond two doors from us.
I can hear the frogs!
I am planning garden beds...
I will take pictures, and more tomorrow.
(oh, and we have LIGHTENING FAST INTERNET!!!)
