Moving forward

This picture has nothing to do with the title.  My daughter found these Skellies at CVS.  They had several different kinds.  They were like $4 each.  This is about as spooky as I go.  I had them hanging off of a cabinet but every
time I passed by the bride looked like a bra hanging there.

Another tease picture.  This is the view from our hopefully new home.  My little grandson would love this pond and the stream.
We are full speed ahead.  We still feel like we need to be cautious mostly about our buyers and their loan.  We have had the inspections on both properties.  We had a new roof put on this week.  That was fun.  I gave the doggies calming pills, helped a tiny bit.  I must say today is nice and quiet.  The roof looks nice.  The warranty is for 50 years on the shingles.  That's a long time.  Now we are waiting on the buyers loan appraisal to come in.  Hoping and praying that we don't have any more requirements.  Last week we had to have the septic inspected.  They couldn't find it.  But once it was found and serviced it was okay.  We did have to pay for new risers.  That's just so they can locate it easier.    Still no closing date set up.  It is supposed to be on or before Nov. 19.  Our realtor said sometimes they just spring it on you at the last minute.  We only have two days to move after it closes.  Hoping to have back to back closings.  Who knows, we know that we may be in a hotel for a couple of days.  I will give you more details when this is all over.
I am packing things and selling things.  Not much furniture left.  Lots of misc. things, mostly my collections.  I have tried to scale them down some.
I am having surgery on my hand/finger next week.  Right hand and I am right handed.  It's for another trigger finger.  This time it is very painful.  I had a shot over a year ago and they can't do another one.  I know that I will be out of commission for a couple of days afterwards.
If you noticed I changed my banner picture.  You probably remember that I have been going to doll auctions.  Well, trying to turn it into a business.  Mostly internet sales.  Good buys on things that I get for a great price.  I am signed up for a Christmas Craft Show in November.  I am still going to do the sale.  This picture I took for the vendor page of the sale.  Actually most of this has been sold. 
Well, that is about it for now.   Just wanted to let you know, I am alive and just a little busy or stressed, to say the least.

All is well

Today I walk in the living room and this is what I saw.  He looks a little guilty doesn't he.  I think  the second one is "The Blue Light Special".
I have been absent.  I am still here.  Sometimes more so than others.  I had a birthday this week.  My daughter came in from Colorado to see her grandmas so we got to celebrate together.  We went to the Granville Inn.  Denison University bought the Inn and closed it for 10 months to remodel.  They kept most of the historic character.  It is so nice.  The food was unreal.
My Mom has bronchitis.  She goes to the oncologist this week.  This is not a good thing.
We had a great time.  Chris and his girl friend (yes he has one and we like her) didn't go.  We took them to Bob Evans that morning.  They could never sit through a dinner like this.
Don't you love this fall porch.  Hint may be my new porch soon. 
We are busy busy, negotiations, inspections, and contracts.  More on that later.  Just when we were ready to give up.  Of course, anything can happen but it is looking good.  I hope I can make this porch look like this again.
