Our house looks a lot like this these days. The appraisal was absolutely perfect and we're just waiting on a closing date, hopefully within the next seven days! We are so excited and so ready to go! We're already talking about putting in a pool next summer! Our renters signed their lease and they are paying us six months in advance! We could not have had a more blessed experience. It was a little hairy worrying over and waiting on the appraisal but we prayed that God's will, not ours, be done and guess what? His will was exactly what we wanted!
Since I have no leave at work (a lonnnnng hospital stay and an unrelated surgery will do that to ya!) and we're moving in the middle of the week, Larry is going to be stuck doing the majority of it by himself during the day while I'm at work. Any amount of help is greatly appreciated! We are planning to rent a U-Haul truck for at least the first day, maybe the second, too. We have a little 1,000 square foot condo but there's a 16x16 workshop and attic to clear out, too. Whew! I'm tired just thinking about it!
So I won't. :) Saturday, Ami had a booth at the Wesleyan Market and sold some of her beautiful artwork. Mixed media art canvases and they are gorgeous! It's obvious that she got ALL the talent in our family. It skipped me, it skipped Ricky and just piled all on top of her.
Here she is showing off her pretties while Brian gets a bear hug from Larry.
Wesleyan Market has lots of cool stuff! Fresh produce and live music, too! We had a great time, got to spend time with our entire family since Mama and Daddy went, too, and Ami sold some of her art! And then the four of them went with me and Larry to see our new house!
Since our country still recognizes today as Columbus Day and since I work for Uncle Sam, I had this day off. I don't believe it should be a holiday, I mean, the man was NEVER HERE. But nobody ever asks me anything. All I know is that if we do have and homeschool a child, he or she will hear a whole 'nother tale about how this country was "discovered". That said, I didn't take the day off. Banjo and I worked with Larry on a rental house he's been working on and we replaced a ceiling fan. And it was fun! And we learned a lot! And we fussed at the fan! And we laughed! And we had Dairy Queen burgers for lunch! It was a wonderful day.
A wonderful weekend, actually. As usual.
