Snow, Snow, Snow



I have a day off today. It is snowing steady now and they are predicting up to 10 inches. I am very fortunate to work with Steve. He knows how freaked out I get driving on bad roads. So I'll be doing thing around the house and try to get some relaxing in too. I wish I had the snowshoes here. I'd go outside and play.
Yesterday, I got home from work around one to do a final clutter removal before the realtor came to do pictures. It did look pretty good when I was done. Then, when she left, out came all the stuff that is normally on the counters, the cat toys from the cupboard, extra pillows back on the bed, etc. I felt strange with all the "stuff" put away out of sight. I couldn't wait to get it out again and be me. I guess our personalities are linked to our stuff in a way. Just think, every showing that we have, all the stuff will all go back into hiding again (along with the cat). Sigh...but it will be worth it if it sells. Especially in these times. Six months is what the realtor says it is taking now on average. I am hoping the first person that looks at it, falls in love with it and all the work will be done :-).
I'm really getting excited about the upcoming birth of our granddaughter. It is bringing back so many memories of Kristin and Shane when they were born.
The last couple of days, I have been working on a slide show of the progress at the farm. Starting with when we first saw the property until now. So far, I have all the pictures picked out and now I have to find the right music. That always seems to be the hard part. Maybe I'll try to post it on the blog when I am done.
Enough writing, I have some crafting & relaxing to do ...

Hoping your house sells in record time!! It just started snowing here about 40 minutes ago. They say we're to get 2-6 inches of fluffy snow. Have a good warm evening!...debbie
