Old stuff...

Did I mention we have a lot of old stuff to move?
We are getting all the outdoor things moved over this weekend. All the motorcycles, snowmobiles, old cars... All the garage stuff, yard stuff, camping stuff...

I am doing the final pack up on the kitchen - yahoo, time for take-out now.

On the final week...

There is a light at the end of this tunnel of boxes!

Leaving behind...

I leave behind a yard that my husband and I worked very hard on. We cleared weeds and overgrowth and planted grass and trees and flowers. It is like a private park.

I leave behind this land-mark; the Cinedome 70 - movie theatres that were built in 1970 and had the best sound of their time... but couldn't compete with the modern theatres, and sit empty now... hoping someone will have a good business idea. Possibly the worlds best Hooters?

I leave behind this view from my windows... I will still see it but from farther away. These mountains are called the Wasatch Range. See the snow - it's fresh from last night!!! yahoo yippee!! These mountains are full of campgrounds, ski resorts, and terrific places to snowmobile in the winter and curvy canyon roads to motorcycle in the summer. Our playground!

Other than that I leave behind 2 busy freeways, lots and lots of traffic, noisy jets, and a few choice neighbors (ha). I can hardly wait! 10 more days!

Flame of Autumn

I saw the flame on Nature Trail's.
She found it on Maria's.
I am joining the circle of fire.
The crisp cool air of Fall has arrived
and the warmth of the fire fills my heart.

Butterflies and Birds

Butterflies and birds. Color out of the black, colorful threads of life, things with wings.

Living free.... searching always... giving thanks.

Life is what you make it.

We went to our new home yesterday evening and sat on the back porch; looked out over the grass and neighboring community, and steeped in the country air. It was relaxing and revealing. We are ready mentally for the move. Almost ready physically - we have 18 days left and still packing, and still need to make all the arrangements with the utilities and internet and etc. I would like to go out with the camera today and take a few more shots of my yard and flowers and views that I will leave behind.

Update on Moving

We are 1/2 way thru with "Moving Boot Camp"; 6 weeks of $#&*. The floor is tiled, the roof will be finished today, and about 1/2 the boxable items are boxed up; we are tired but surviving!

I have of course been unable to stay away from art 100% and have been creating with the little bits that are left around me... Here is what has come out of the chaos...

These are ATC size (3 1/2" x 2 1/2")

I miss blogging! So HEY to everyone & THANKS for the encouragement in this moving ordeal!!! I'm getting a good workout on the roof and will be in shape for snowmobiling in a couple months!
