Packing, Packing, and Oh Yes…Packing.

I’m surrounded by boxes. Lots and lots of boxes.

The good news is that they are mostly packed full of stuff that we probably don’t need but are hauling across town to our new house anyway.  Our house is finished and we are set to close on Tuesday.  It would have been sooner, but the bank has taken its sweet time and won’t be ready for the close until then.  But I’m not bitter…

I’m still working on Christmas presents that I can’t show you, although I’ve not made nearly as much progress as I’d have liked to.  Let’s just say things will be ready somewhere in the vicinity of Christmas. 

While going through the kitchen to pack some things this morning, I ran across this oldie but goodie:

I had forgotten I even had this little cook book that I used as a kid.  I remember gazing at the pictures and dreaming of making such yummy things.  Of course, the reality never really matched the dreams, but I enjoyed the dreaming, nonetheless.

This will probably be my last post until after the first of the year since we’ll be crazy with the move and with the holidays, but I wish you all a wonderful holiday season and a happy, happy New Year!




  1. Happy Moving! we wont be around this time! hope you find plenty of help. I wonder if in one of those boxes is a video of old home movies by the gray family...there are some cute ones of Paul when he was little...I'm sure they are lost in the shuffle of moving 2 times...anyway I love the pics of your new home hope I get to see it someday!! :)

  2. I'm so happy for you! Well, and a little scared too. I know how much work is involved, but it will be worth it once those boxes are unpacked and you are settled into your brand new home. I can't wait to see some pictures of your new place in the New Year. Merry Christmas!
