Still Here.

We're trying to leave.  We're all packed up and waiting on the weather to finish loading the moving truck.  We're also needing the roads to clear.  Hopefully, we'll get to leave soon. 
The house hasn't sold, but we have a place to move into.  We had a showing today.  Perfect timing as everything is in total turmoil.  They drove several hours in the snow just to see this place.  They stayed awhile and spent about an hour outside exploring the property while it was snowing.
Don't know what will happen, but we're moving on.
I'll update and get back to regular posting once we're settled in.

So, here I am.  Still in Idaho and dreaming of Colorado.  There isn't anything new to report. 

I did get a call today from someone here in town interested in seeing the house.  I passed the message on to the realtor.  It's been weeks since we've had a showing. 

Also, the family that had two showings were spotted yesterday driving by as slow as possible.  Maybe there is still interest there.  I really have no idea what will happen, but I'm praying this will sell and soon.  We are planning to move on next month whether it sells, or not by then.  It would be best to have it sell.  We certainly don't want to pay for two homes.

We think we know the house we'll move into, but there are some issues still up in the air about it.  Big issues, but as there is nothing I can do about it, I'm trying not to think about it!

My Mom moved on ahead at the end of last month.  We loaded some things, mostly furniture, onto her truck.  We had expected a bigger truck and had packed up virtually everything, but it didn't happen. All the rest is packed up in tubs in the basement waiting to move. 

We are here with minimal furnishings, enough things to keep it looking nice for showings and only a dozen books each.  I'm almost done with all mine and may have to move onto Sweetheart's stash soon.  ;)  The house seems so empty to me without all our books and bookshelves, but someone dropped in the other day who has been over ever since we moved in and he didn't notice a thing.

I've hung up garlands of Autumn leaves with my twinkle lights in the kitchen and the living room with more leaves tucked all around.  It hides the bare (to me) places and keeps it looking warm and cozy. 

The kids and I are busy doing school and hanging out.  My tough jobs are done until the week it is time to leave.  It's kind of nice to relax a bit in the afternoons.  Sweetheart is still busy selling things off and cleaning up the outside of the property.  It looks a lot better for all his hard work. 

We all took an hour off this afternoon and went on a walk at Cupcake's insistence.  She ended up being carried part way back up the hills.  We traded off.  She's getting heavy.  ;)  And I was just commenting on what a good walker she was to someone yesterday.  She'll sleep well tonight!

We saw lots of deer, cows and horses on the walk and all admired the changing leaves.  There are still some trees around with plums and pears and apples.  My tomatoes in the garden have taken off in spite of my almost complete neglect.  They did nothing all summer, but are all ripening nicely now in October.  We have all sorts of colors of tomatoes and carrots which is a lot of fun.

Well, I'd best get off the computer and get everyone settled.  Hope you are all well wherever you are!

Going on

We had another offer, another counter, and silence.  We've had a few more showings, but nothing else. 
We're still packing and selling things off and planning to leave.  I do not know dates, or details.
We sold the chickens the other night, but still have the roosters running around.   Hopefully, they'll find new homes soon.  We all miss the hens and chicks.  Two more chicks hatched last week.  We've loved listening to them all peep and cheep all summer.  We will eventually have chickens again.
I've taken tons of pictures, but can't get my computer to work right to be able to post them and do regular posts again.  Maybe someday.  Until then, know I appreciate your prayers and comments.  They mean a lot to me!

We never heard back from the Counter Offer.  *sigh*  But we pack on!
