We spent most of this week in North Carolina. So far, I love our new home & living so close to family. As you might expect, I’m back to my bad habit of posting way more than one picture per day. Don’t worry – that won’t happen every week!
Sunday, January 29th
We (meaning Dr. M), packed late into the evening.
Monday, January 30th
I just got one picture of the interior of the truck – looking pretty typical for us. We got a bigger truck than we really needed because it was the same price as the smaller one, and came with a ramp. If we'd had about four more people helping we probably could have filled it up.
Dr. M set off down the road about 40 minutes before I did. He took these pictures. I was a good girl and did NOT try to take pictures. (Actually, I was so involved in my audio book that I barely knew I was driving. Oops!)
Tuesday, January 31st
We signed the lease on the new house today & I took random photos of things that I found interesting – like the radio/cassette sound system (plays in the living area & the bedroom), and this super fabulous floor lamp!
Wednesday, February 1st
We unloaded the truck today. Dr. M & my 76 year old father did most of the heavy lifting. (OK, they did ALL the heavy lifting). My dad’s a hoss! His new fiancé, Sue, helped a lot too!
I was feeling pretty pleased about being in NC instead of Ohio. When we were loading the truck on Sunday it was spitting snow! This was a nice change.
Thursday, February 2nd
Dr. M spent some time bird watching – female cardinal and male yellow bellied sap sucker. We LOVE this tree in our back yard! We’re about 99% sure that it’s a white oak, but we’ll see what its leaves tell us in the spring. I didn’t take a picture of it, but we have a nice deck where I think Dr. M will probably just live all the time.
Friday, February 3rd
We built a little fire in our fireplace. Dr. M is going to enjoy messing with it, since the fire pit went to the great pit in the sky.
