Finally I have my computer in my new country home. It has been a long 9 weeks.
My daughter spent time this morning attempting to activate "this air card". She could get no connection. A technical support agent spent over an hour with her. We headed out to lunch.
This was her birthday lunch from mom.
After lunch I was left to see what I could do with this computer connection. I have spent two hours with a technician and finally I am connected.
I have missed having my computer available.
Now once again I have my friend.
So I will be continue relating my journey online.
Yesterday was a tiring day. It was another big moving day. I was up at 3:30 listening to the pouring rain and lightning. So you can imagine how anxious I was. I called the moving company and was told "oh we have blankets to cover everything". I was lucky as the sun came out about the time the moving truck arrived.
It is so nice to have my computer desk, desk in my bedroom, my grandmother clock ( is happily chiming and my leather recliner sure feels good.. The large antique dining table that sat in my garage in the city for two years is sitting proudly in my new kitchen area. It is large - but I like it. It is an old friend of 40 years and a 200 year old table.
I never thought of myself as being that attached to items but everything that was moved are like old friends entering this country home. For some reason I find them comforting and did not realize I missed them so much.
For over 8 weeks I have been eating at a card table and sitting in a not too comfortable chair to read also my paper work in files sitting on the floor.
I am weary from the move yesterday but happy.
Children and grandchildren will be with me Sunday. I will cook my first family dinner.
My grill was delivered and we will grill burgers. Sides from my freezer of fresh green beans and corn on the cob. Will make a special recipe of Texas baked beans. Making 2 lemon ice box pies and a friend supplied a watermelon. Really a simple country meal but it will be so good to have family surrounding me.
Yesterday while the movers were loading I picked 18 tomatoes from my city garden. That garden continues to be breathtaking.
There is one more load of furniture to be delivered when city home sells.
I have taken nothing off of the walls as to not have nail holes that need to be prepared.
Also as I go in each week I will continue to bring the rest of my clothes and a few things in the kitchen.
My son arrived safely home from Thailand yesterday.
Yes, One Woman is smiling.
Thanks again for all who encourage me and keep in touch.
