The Unpacking Continues…

Autumn 2010 Nelson 014

After our recent move on Vancouver Island, we’ve been spending a LOT of time unpacking.

We had MANY, many boxes in storage, for years. Some even from my mom’s place. Slowly but surely, the end is in sight.

I love to giveaway things I no longer need and so far we’ve donated over 100 boxes of various items, to charity. Having garage sales just didn’t seem worth the time.

In -between unpacking and other commitments, we’ve been enjoying our new home and the incredible weather we’ve been enjoying so far this summer.

Mr. Cheddar is doing great too.

He hasn’t changed much through the years. People are always amazed that he’s 17 plus years and still so healthy and active!

Happy Week to All!😊

Happy Summer and Blogging Updates!😊

How Has Your Summer Been So Far???

  060

Wow, did the last two months fly by or is it just me? 😉

I can’t believe that September is just around the corner already.

But IMO, that’s a good thing ’cause my fav season is autumn. 

I hope you have all been having a wonderful summer so far. And it’s not quite over, is it? 😉

How has your weather been? It’s been a VERY dry, hot summer here in BC. 😦

I’m still busy with summer “stuff” right now but have some post ideas and reviews in the works that I hope you’ll enjoy.

I hope to be back to regular posting (and blog visiting!) in the next couple of weeks.

Have an awesome week!!!! G

So long for now and….

 

have a beautiful summer

I’ve got some wonderful online and offline projects on the go that are keeping me very busy these days.

So, I’ve decided to take a blog break for the next few weeks.

We are also in the process of getting ready to move by late fall, so that’s going to take up time too. 

Seems that a lot of other bloggers are quiet right now, judging by the decrease in posts I’m seeing in my WP Reader. 

I hope that you all have an amazing and memorable summer, in every way. 🙂
