1 broken appliance (fixed by the repairman unplugging, then replugging in, the refrigerator…)
2 near heart attacks (once when a squirrel jumped on the roof and starting throwing nuts, I thought I was under attack and once when I was in the basement and the gas furnace came on, spewing flames, I thought the house would explode)
3 evening walks through beautiful trees
4 neighbors met
5 locks re-keyed
6 floor cleanings (houses with no furniture are easy to sweep and mop)
7 pieces of mail received
8 days of working with the front door open, a cool breeze blowing, and birds singing
9 nights falling asleep to crickets chirping
10 hours sitting in the porch swing, swinging and reading and daydreaming.
I’m feeling mighty happy about living here.

Pictures???? Congrats on your move! Hope you have many, many years of happiness!
Right now the house is empty! Still no eta on when my furniture from CA will arrive. Pics after that happens 🙂
Good luck as always in your new home, Lori.
And hope you are spared any of the miserable weather we keep hearing about !
Thanks, Michael! Depending on which way Irma shifts, we may get some storms here next week. It’s wait and see at this point.
Irma, what a great welcoming party.. be safe!
Thanks, Mat! Hopefully Irma will head back over the ocean (although that’s not looking likely…)
I can’t wait to hear more about life in the mountains….and to give you the biggest hug I can give.
I’m SO looking forward to seeing you as well, and giving you a super huge hug. Only a few more days! 🙂
I’ve been a reader of your blog since you taught school overseas, and now you live in my city! Welcome to Asheville!
Thank you, Tricia! I’m loving Asheville so far! 🙂
That’s a great list so far. Hope you stay safe and dry!
Thanks, Jackie! So far, so good. Let’s see what the next few days bring!
