are we there yet?



our faithful feline KNOWS there is definitely something up ... something very very odd ... there used to be books on the shelf he is resting on ... though the look in his eyes is none too peaceful!

i feel like a kid asking "are we there yet? are we there yet?" ... then i look in another closet and see more stuff to pack and decide ... uh, not quite!

we had more unexpected help this weekend ... friends of ours who live 450 miles away, drove down for an afternoon ... and what a busy afternoon ... dump run, shovelling a path for the movers, a truck run to the house ... they slept here one night, then had to head home this morning ... they sure did bless and refresh our hearts ...

i'm a bit weary ... but otherwise in good spirits ... leo is very uncomfortable, yet trying to lend a hand if/when he can ...

we are in the final countdown to our MOVE date ... i will post when i can ...

humming ... "my Lord knows the way through the wildnerness, all i have to do is follow ... "

Glad you're in good spirits. Just how did the cat get up there?

your feline doesn't seem overly concerned though. Guess he figures you cleared out that spot just for him.

thank goodness for unexpected friends and blessings. even a feline smile (or grimace) is a thing of amusement in times like packing non-stop.

(hugs)

Animals are funny...we have had dogs do some amazing things prior to moves. They always sense things, sometimes before it is obvious what is going on.

SO wonderful you have such fabulous friends...what a gift! May the Lord bless them much!!

"Strength for today is mine always and all that I need for tomorrow..." I love that old song too. Something comforting about those old ones...they did not all sound alike in "our day" either, did they?

Blessings and hang in there...looks like all things are coming together for you and I am so happy for you!

Hi Saija,

When we moved I kept thinking we were almost done and more things just kept appearing - it seemed to never end - it was crazy. But...it does end and you will soon be settled in your new place. Keep hanging, girl!

It's been interesting to get caught up with what's happening in your big move! It sounds like lots of stretching and growth along the way :-)

Glad everything is moving along (so to speak!).

Bless you guys!

hey guys! forgive me for the quickie group reply ... we have been doing pretty good with the packing, it seems to be coming together and so far the weather is cooperating too ... i've been going to the rental house daily (sometimes twice) to take boxes and empty boxes ... most rooms are 90% done ... soooooo - i'm glad ... leo has contributed a wee bit - his lack of ability "to do" is just another affirmation that selling our house was the right thing to do ... APPRECIATE the prayer! ((hugs)) all around!
