So far it has been a very busy month for me. It seems the more I do the more there is to do. I can't seem to get my bearings at all lately. I have been trying to figure out whether I want to use U-haul or a Mover; as my friend that was going to drive for me seems to have gotten quite sick. I have been thinking of getting a Pack Rat container to move to their storage lot for the things I don't need immediately. While all this is going around and around in my head I am praying the house gets sold and we get what we want and desire in New York.
So I guess what I need from you folks are your prayers and best wishes. However, if you live in the area I do, I sure could use a few bodies to get this mess in order and ready! I need a few competent friends to repack and pack before moving day. Then I need some really fit fellas to load the truck. I would not expect the 'movers' to do it for nothing but you and I need to know each other. I also need someone to help me organize a yard sale half way through next month. Knowing that things working just as I would like is probably quite possible; but not very probable I will just 'inch' on by myself and pray a lot.
Now those kitties have the right idea! Full of idealism and heart and short on on luggage!

April 7, 2010
Well here it is the 7th of April. I had a lovely Easter at my friend's home. She put on a large, delicious spread. I am very fond of ham and all the fixings. Her daughter made a castle shaped spice cake for dinner with cream cheese icing. There is nothing like the combination of good friends and good food.
We have had a combination of thunderstorms or the sun shining brightly for the last couple of weeks. In both cases the temperature has been quite warm; 60 or warmer. We were able to turn off our furnaces down here, at the end of March. As a matter of fact; I have had my stand up fan on for several days. Surrounding the house there are dozens of clumps of hyacinths, a sprinkling of tulips, a clump or two of Irises, and a few daffodils. They were a nice surprise.
Another lovely result of this weather; is the fact that I don't have to wear a jacket anymore. I am still in the midst of packing. I just hope that most of it is done by the end of this month. This whole business of moving is harrowing to say the least; but I have every confidence it will work out well. I am looking forward to setting up house in New York and visiting my daughter and grand kids in Ontario, Canada.
I have to get all three fur babies their shots; ready for the trip. I hope that they weather the move well. Dylan, my Pomeranian needs a grooming before leaving too. Haven't quite completely made up my mind just how we are going to make the move; but that will come by the end of the month too.
When I think of all the changes going on in my life, I must remember that life flourishes on change. We have to be aware that it is all of our experiences that make life interesting and worth living. I know something else for sure; anytime there has been a change in my life, it has always been for the best in the end. So folks keep me in your prayers for this and next month. I need all the support I can muster. Thanks to Tom, my late husband; I not only believe in dreaming my dreams, I believe in living my dreams!
