Warm Welcome

I am slowly but surely recovering from the process of moving from one end of Phoenix to the other. The move - from a two-bedroom home to two rooms in my son's home - required a lot of decisions about what could come with me and what had to be given away, either to family or the Salvation Army. I probably brought too much with me, but I'll know more as I get settled in.

My commute to visit/babysit grandchildren has tripled, but the trip isn't too bad. Good thing I like to drive!

My son and daughter-in-law (and their five dogs!) welcomed me with open arms, always a plus. I'm getting acquainted with my new neighborhood and I plan to go on a photo safari soon.

The beautiful sunset shown above greeted me on the night I moved in. I took it as a sign that all will be well. So far, so good.

Until next time,

Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you're utilizing? I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and
I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a
good hosting provider at a fair price? Thanks, I appreciate it!

Having read this I thought it was very informative. I appreciate you spending some time
and effort to put this short article together. I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading
and posting comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

Hi Marianne,

Gorgeous photo, quite dramatic and intriguing, I'd say! All the best in your new home. I find that the older I get, the more I tend to purge and free myself of too many 'things'!

Have a super day!

Moving can be tough and stressful, Marianne. I couldn't wait for that event to be over when we moved from our home of 21 years, 2 years ago. We downsized, too, so I had a lot of stuff to get rid of!
