My Mom's New House

Last Saturday, Mom went and walked through this patio home.  On Monday, she make an offer and they closed yesterday.  Today we moved 99% of the stuff from the old house to this new house.  About 30 people from her old ward showed up, packed and emptied the old house.  So as you view these pictures, ignore the boxes.  This is a nice BIG single floor home.
This is the 2 car garage.  By the end of today, we had it emptied enough that Mom could park the van in there.
Sorry about how dark this front room is.
Dining area.
Master Bedroom
One bedroom going to be the craft room.
The other bedroom going to be the office. This home also has 2 bathrooms, 2 pantries and a family room.  Will take more pictures once Mom organizes the rooms they way she wants them.

A Warm Spring Afternoon

Yesterday, I promised the grandson, that we would go outside, after his nap.  By the time we went outside, school was out and all the kids in the neighborhood were outside too.  This was great lots of kids to play with in the sunshine.  And all the older kids were very kind and helpful to such a little one as Xander.  Here is Xander playing ball with one of the neighbor kids. Sorry about the camera work, my back was to the sun and I couldn't even see what was on the display. Enjoy!

New Car, at least to us!

Last week on my way to see the Doctor the Sebring stopped working.  Needed $2500 worth of transmission work.  Frankly, to us the car is not worth it.  So got a small loan and start car shopping. Three days later we own (as long as we keep up the payments) a Subaru Impressa Outback.  Ever since I killed my first Impressa, we have wanted another one.  Here it is.  It makes me smile.
