HELLO Monday!!

Linking up with Lisa Leonard for some "Hello Mondays." Just a word about Lisa.........if you have never dropped by Lisa's blog then I urge you to click on the link and visit her.  She's an awesome Christian gal with so much talent and creates the most gorgeous jewelry.  She is Mom to a special needs son that she shares about with such devotion.  Now, on to some hello's this morning.

HELLO new house progress....Lots and lots is going on with the new house.  Last week they finished the insulation, started hanging sheet rock and the bricks were delivered.  Of course, with the bricks all bundled up you can't really tell at all what they are going to look like.  But, they will start laying them in the next week or so and then you will be able to tell what they will look like. This morning they are starting on the stucco and continuing with the sheet rock. It is "all hands on deck" and it is truly taking shape!

HELLO packing, getting rid of and going through process.......I began this process last week and what a job!  I am using an area in our upstairs to put the boxes I pack so as to keep the rest of the house looking neat and tidy.  The problem with that is I have to carry every box that I pack downstairs up the steep stairs. I must have carried 15+ boxes up there on Saturday and can I just tell you that I was tired.  The boxes I pack upstairs are just moved to the area where they are being stacked and no stairs are involved.  I'm trying to make wise decisions in what I am keeping.  I really had a hard time when I was packing up my China and crystal.  The last time I used it was 7 years ago and before that, I couldn't tell you.  My kids do not want it so I'd probably be just as well off if I sold it when we have an estate sale after our move.  But, I did pack it up very carefully and for now, it's making the move.  And, because I'm doing my own packing I can't use very big boxes because of the lifting.  So, as our daughter said, we'll probably have 600 boxes in the end and it could have been half that many if I had been able to use bigger boxes.  But, I want to pack myself because no one else would be able to decide for me if it goes in the "keep, get rid of or sell" pile.  I'm just thankful that I have anywhere from 4 - 6 months to do this.

HELLO frozen Greek yogurt......when I find something that is good I always try to share it with you.  I came across this the other day and can I just tell you that it is delicious!  It is another low calorie nighttime treat.  It comes in a couple of flavors but I always gravitate towards blueberry.  I let it sit about 15 minutes before I eat it and it is in a softer, creamy state and oh, so good!

Here's wishing you a beautiful new week!

    I just saw you from Lisa Leonard's blog:-) I haven't jumped on the greek yogurt bandwagon yet..I tried it once, but maybe I got the wrong brand because it wasn't that great??? I'll try this one!! Also- congrats on the house. Building is so exciting! xoShannon

  2. When I packed and moved from Bastrop, I used computer boxes from school. I was able to pack tons of things in them; however, the movers couldn't lift them. I hope you are marking all those little boxes well so you won't have to guess where they go when you move them. But if I know you, you have a spreadsheet. :).

    Do you think Blogger added the robot screener to our comments? If it keeps the anonymous comments out, I don't mind.

  3. Your new home looks like it is coming along nicely. Thanks for the tip on the yogurt - I will look for it at the store today!

  4. Packing up to move from one house to another is a huge undertaking. Like you, though, I'd much rather do it myself. I can never find what I'm looking for when professional movers do it. Just so excited that your home is coming together!
