one down, one to go

With all the hum-bug of selling home/business my reading this year has really been poor. No time, less energy. I still try to get in at least 45 minutes every night when I hit bed, but lately husband has been coming in and waking me up to tell me to put book away 'you're sleep-reading again!'
I did finally just finished The Shack. I was hoping it was the ultimate 'Man-meets-God" read. It kept my interest right until the end...then, disappointing ending...It was actually a 'power-of-the-human-mind'. I suppose I was still looking for answers to my never ending questions on the hereafter and ultimately I am right back to square one... I have never been one for formal religion, I do talk to God almost every day but there is always that lingering question in mind....'are you really there?' My philosophy has always been that your 'spirit/soul' or what lives on after your demise is the power of all the good you did and all the love you have left behind while here on earth. But now I am getting deep and that is dangerous and I could go on and on so I will end it here.. But all in all, I DID enjoy the book & I suppose I should not have been unexpecting of the ending.
The Story Of Edgar Sawtelle I just began last night. I bought this book a while ago on a friend's recommendation and had to search around a bit for it. Now I see it everywhere, I guess it is the next 'big-read' on the market.

Bye Bye Baby Goodbye.

... she's leaving on Sunday. I'll miss our cruising around, but it is just not right to take her onto the pot-holed dirt road that we will be living on. l will miss her ( and all that torque).

countdown move

11 more days!!!!
It seems as though all I have been doing is boxing and dumping, it is getting old quick. Today I have a moving company coming to give me an estimate, any price at all seems good to me. As you can see house and barn are not ready but as we have to be out it will have to do. Good thing it is summertime! I have to stay behind for 5 days to help the new owners and will spend those nights with daughter #2 and her family. It will be good to do some bonding with our 2 grandsons 'cuz they will no longer be 20 minutes away.
I am really excited to move on & a little sad that I cannot be up at the new place to help with the process,but as you can see husband brings me home photos every weekend.
The *fun* part of our move is the animals that will have to travel with us to their new home...I'm talkin' parrot, 30+ pigeons, 6 rabbits, and 5 dogs!! Should be interesting.
