Two cats, some soup and a dog

Vegetable beef soup and cornbread

My very first toy... a dog

 On November 8th I decided to do surgery on the little dog that came home from the hospital with me in 1964. He now sits up on his own again. My stitches joined those of my Grandma where she had taken the stuffing out to wash him many times... to save his barker... yes he used to bark but not anymore


The Catio and the truck

The three cottage kitties had a rough 2 hour drive from Greenville and a scary night out on the porch/Catio. But have settled into a new routine and are starting to get along with Greg's kitties; which I am thrilled about. Of course Piper the Princess still grumbles about them being here and Coal and Tippy are always hissing at each other and trying to start fights... but even that is becoming less.Sally and Callie just try to avoid them all and spend a lot of time looking for places to hide. 






October 22, 2020 - We rented a 26 foot U-haul

Loading the U-haul together was quite the job for two middle aged persons but we got it loaded... I'm still not sure how we did it. Thankfully Greg was able to help us some with the unloading.  But still we were so exhausted by the time we turned the truck in  the next day. 

A lot has happened since the pictures below and I have an area mostly set up but there are still boxes to go through and probably more things will go to Goodwill before it's over with but I have no sense of urgency anymore and am taking each day and working a little at a time and trying not to overwhelm myself again. Life has taken on a much different role for me now. I want to take each day, appreciate it and create beautiful things for myself and others. I want to have time out in Nature everyday as it rejuvenates my Spirit and brings me joy. It really is the little things in life that makes it beautiful.



 

Back in Cayce

 It has been several weeks now and we are slowly getting resettled into our home. I have been so involved in going through things and purging so much STUFF. It's really ridiculous the amount of things we have burdened our lives with... it happens so easily. I am glad we had this move to and fro as it has really opened my eyes to how much we hold onto for no real reason.  Things aren't the memories they are just things that weigh us down.  

October 12th, 2020
We moved so many things to storage in Greenville... then brought them back and sorted more out to go to Goodwill. It really was ridiculous... but alas I fear it was the way it HAD to be for me to let go. Let go of the STUFF... it's only holding you back. 

October 18th - Setting up my new creative space

Because our bedroom is still not complete and we are sleeping in the middle bedroom at the moment; the room that was my hobby space I am having to locate in the front living room area for now. I NEED a space to be creative to help me cope with life... especially now in these uncertain times. So once we got all our stuff back down here I began organizing and sorting and have been working toward getting an area that I can let my creativity out.

October 21, 2020 we said a final farewell to the little cottage. We had a love nearly 5 years there and we learned a lot about what we can and can't live with and without. We are thankful to Adele, Scott's sister for allowing us to stay there. Now we will wait and see what  the future holds for us.
