Tara got a fork bracelet today, I found this photo on line,but not made by the same guy, and my mom got an angel pin made from the design ends off the silverware. I will have to take a picture of that. Tara has wanted this bracelet since the 1st week we went to the Farmer's Market, but we had already spent too much. The vendor is Argyle Gifts. She also got her favorite hand made bath fizzies from Coconut Clean, she was given a 3 pack as a parting gift! That was so very nice of him.
It was so hot and sticky by 10:30 this morning, we decided to head home, but not after a quick trip to, you guessed it Goodwill.
The rest of the day was spent "puttering" around, collecting odds and ends of things around the house. I went through one more box of Tara's stuff collected from my bedroom. It is just a matter now of getting all the little things around the house put into boxes, or if insignificant, trashed.
I will need one more trip to Goodwill with some things I forgot, but we are really almost ready!!!
I need to go reserve a truck (they make you pay for FIVE days for a trip of our distance, even if you don't need it that long. I think at the most I will need it four. I hope to get packed by early afternoon Tuesday, (all the boxes are gathered in one area, so grabbing two or three at a time on a hand truck will be easy, and I don't see us having more than 30 boxes), and we have only 5 pieces of furniture that I can't load, thus the "rent-a-movers" I have hired! I'd love to get 8 or 9 (or more) hours of driving in on Wednesday, and then complete the trip on Thursday, arriving home a day earlier!
I have to say, I miss Maia and Daphne, but the house is so much calmer! Maia is a ball of energy, and some days a bit much. I think Princess is loving being an only dog. I have to hope that they found great homes already this weekend. I don't have the "strength" to go check on them.....
