Snow, snow, snow!!!!

Yes, we actually woke up to snow on Sunday morning! Not a lot, but we had a good solid snow shower at 7:30, then off and on tiny flurries for the rest of the morning. But it was so windy that you couldn't get outside to enjoy it - the wind was howling at 20-30 miles an hour.

We took the dogs this weekend for the first time. Sister settle right in, but Suzie was terrified of the linoleum and laminate floors. Here she is cowering on the mat by the door where she stayed for almost a half an hour. We finally coaxed her into the den into her bed, but she wouldn't budge from there. We had to use a treat to get her back out the door to pee. By the end of the weekend, she was walking across the floor without a problem, but she still didn't like it!!!!

We're in!

We moved in this weekend - this will be a long post with lots of pictures.....

The only problem we had was with the washer. I ran an empty load just to clean out the dust, and when it started to drain, there was MUCH water on the floor! They'll be out to fix it this week, but I couldn't wash any of the sheets or towels. But I used the hell out of the dishwasher!

Okay, now to pictures......

The Clampetts head back to the hills Can anyone identify the essential of life that's hidden in the trailer? Here's a's a pink box!

Here's my kitchen - after 2 days of washing all the dishes and putting them up!

The hearth and TV area....

Here's our chairs - one of them to be replaced later
Here's my lonely dining room table - I still haven't finished the chairs!
The hall bedroom...
The hall bathroom....
Our bedroom - just a blanket on it now. I haven't bought a bedspread yet!
The large guest bedroom with my quilt that Mom and my mother-in-law gave me for my birthday...
And last but not least, our porch dining set!

The power is on!

The power was connected yesterday, and today they will test out the water (to make sure there aren't any leaks!). We plan to go up and stay this weekend, assuming that the water is working.......

We forgot the camera last weekend, so I don't have any updated pictures. The kitchen is still a mess anyway - boxes everywhere while I decide where to store things - decisions, decisions!

We have a CO!!!

We have a Certificate of Occupancy! This means the house has passed inspection, and they will come out next week and connect the electricity. We're heading up this morning to move some things and get the kitchen set up. Pictures next week!
