HELLO Monday............

Another Monday has somehow rolled around and no matter how hard we may try the days just seem to roll by so quickly.  It's a rather cold and rainy Monday here and most of us  are pretty tired of cold and wet weather, but perhaps we will be able to say HELLO to some sunshine tomorrow. I sure hope so!  Now for some Monday HELLO's...........
HELLO new house progress.......the installation of the cabinets continue and will continue for probably another two weeks.  It's such fun to watch them all go in and to ponder what we will be putting in them. 

And, the inside doors are being installed/hung whichever you might want to call it.  Anyway, I'm really pleased with the way they look and of course, when the painting begins (probably around the 1st of Feb.) things will really begin to take shape.  But, every week it becomes more and more a reality.

HELLO more packing........ yes, the packing continues.  I'm sure it has seemed as though all I do is pack but that is certainly not the case.  I grab an hour here and an hour there and some days may actually pack for 2-3 hours, but it is a slow process as I go through each and every item and decide which pile it goes in, keep, give, or sell.  But, I feel a real sense of accomplishment with each box that I pack.  And, as you can see, I am not using big boxes for the most part, unless it's something very light weight.  I cannot handle heavy boxes and every box that is packed I carry up our stairs where they are being stored until the move.  So, I'm getting a lot of good exercise in the process. ~grin~

HELLO My Fitness Pal........okay folks, this is the neatest app and whether you are dieting or just wanting to keep track of the food and calories you are consuming, this app is for you.  My SIL has been using it for 2-3 months and our daughter has talked about what a great tool it is, so I decided that I would start using it to track my food, water and calorie intake every day.  Oh, I forgot to tell you, it's FREE! After getting it set up I think you would love it.  It has over 2 million foods and their calories and every major chain fast food and restaurant this side of heaven.  I can tell you that it will make you think twice before you indulge in some of the items on restaurant menus when you see just how many calories are in it.  And, you can scan any item that you might eat at home if you have the scan code and it will immediately add it to your food diary for the day.  Just a really neat app and it's sort of like playing a game. I'm always excited to share with you something I find that I think you might enjoy too. ~don't you appreciate that?~ chuckle~


HELLO rainy day fun......Our daughter and family have been enduring the same rainy and cold weather that we've been having.  And, Clancy has had about all of it he can take.~I understand completely~  Bridget said that yesterday afternoon he went to his room, pulled out all his weapon wear, put it on and came hollaring into the family room.  He wants to be outside playing with his new basketball and goal but he's doing a pretty good job entertaining himself inside in the meantime. 

Have a great new week!

  3. Good morning! Well it looks like you are at such a fun part of the house project watching those cabinets go in. Getting closer and closer; You have packing for a long time...but I think you are doing it in such a manageable way. Slowly going through everything with piles of discard, keep etc. When we moved from our house that we had been in for 25 years it was SUCH a process I can totally identify. Though we were moving into a much smaller place so there was A LOT of "get rid of" lol. It rained here all week-end, but we are suppose to have sun now all week. One good storm and I am done with it, lol. Enjoy your day!

  4. That IS a neat app! I've seen it before, worth checking out for sure.

    Progress continues on your new home, it is so exciting. I love to see all the steps that go into it, and can't wait for the final day when you are moved in and we get to see that too!

    Have a great week.

  5. Lea...I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying watching your new home come together. The excitement is definitely building! Don't you just love packing? HA! There is nothing I dread more, but it's a good way to get rid of some things that may have long been forgotten about. My family says I'm an anti-hoarder and I'd have to agree. I've never heard of that app before and will definitely be looking into it soon! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Love the idea that Clancy pulled out all of his weaponry out of frustration with the cold outside weather. Don't we all feel that way sometimes?!!

    I see you're getting the 8 foot tall doors. I thought they were soooo strange in our house but now anything shorter looks, well, SHORT! Good job on the packing! That process will keep you fit!!

  7. So excited for you and your new house. What fun to look forward to in this new year. It's really taking shape now. I am with you on the packing. Nobody wants to carry those extra large boxes, including the professional moving men! Happy 2015!

  8. Moving is therapeutic! Packing seems endless, but it is so good! When you finally get into your beautifully done new home, you will feel so blessed, and so organized! I enjoy being on the journey with you. I like those wooden doors.
