August Update

A lot has and hasn't happened in the last month.
The weather is still hot and dry. I feel like someone stuck us in the oven, turned it to broil and forgot about us!  We had two brief rain showers the whole month of July. Not near enough.

Hubby went off to Denver and is now working. (I wrote a bit about that last week). He should get his first paycheck this week. Oh, Happy Days!!
We signed a lease on a house in the northern suburbs of Denver. It's not exactly my idea of a dream home, but we felt it was the best way  to get into a place up there and not have to deal with a landlord. Nothing against landlords (we may become some fairly soon) but when a person has animals, landlords aren't exactly the most desirable people to deal with. And believe me, I am making a mental note of that! I don't want to become a person that I wouldn't even want to deal with!

Our "New" House
Had a couple of showings of the house here in Arkansas. And we remain hopeful that it will sell before the end of summer.
I am still packing away. I have odds-n-ends in the house to pack. All that oddly shaped stuff that just doesn't quite fit into any normal size box. But I am spending most of my time packing up Hubby's garage and two shop buildings. He won't be able to find anything for a good while. Teach him for not packing it himself! And I have  a deadline to meet. We are leaving Arkansas the end of the month. I'm anxious to to rejoin the Family and to rejoin the Art Scene. I have dearly missed creating my Faeries and any and all sort of Halloween items.
And speaking of Halloween... We'll have two, possibly three yards to "Haunt" this year! WooHoo!!! We'll have to use what we have, so this year won't be all that creepy but it'll still be fun!

And don't forget, Gomez is having a Giveaway! You can read about it here!

I congratulate you on your desire to someday be a pet-friendly landlord. It's so terribly sad when people leave their pets behind during a move. I could never do it. Sounds like your lease is a good solution for you.

So some things are falling into place; the rest is sure to follow. What a job you have to pack up hubby's stuff, yikes! Better get Gomez to help! You have a lot to do, but you also have so much to look forward to! I know you are missing everyone. Can't wait to see pics of Colorado! Hugs and blessings.

Hey, congrats to Hubby on his new job! Sheesh, I go away for a few days and miss all the big news. I'll have to go back and catch up on the posts I missed. Happy for you both!

Congrats on hubby starting his new job! I hope your packing goes as smoothly as it can and that you're reunited with your family quick as can be. Here's to new beginnings and a bright, blessed future!
