From a year ago

Just for the sake of having a photograph, I am showing this one taken one year ago...I guess fall is arriving right on time this year. I notice a tree over on the next street starting to turn...and see splotches of color every now and then. I really am looking forward to the changing colors.

I am running on empty....we spent the day at Sarah's. The trucks are packed, the house is practically empty.....hopefully by this time tomorrow night we will all be asleep at her new house. I didn't do much other than try to keep Lorelei entertained, but had stuff to do when I got home and have just now finally finished.

Jeremy and Sarah have some really great friends....there were three there when we got there this morn and none of them were slackers. They got the house cleaned out in no time. One couple had to leave, but they waited till all the heavy stuff was loaded...which means that almost all of it was done. One guy had come home from Indy with Jeremy last night to drive one of their cars home...he left sometime in the afternoon....and he will be at their new house tomorrow to help unload. One of the guys was there still there when we left....

And they are all kids we like...the instant we meet them. Just hard working, good hearted kids. Oh, and Lorelei likes them all! That should tell you a whole lot right there.

Not sure when I will get to blog again or visit anyone...I have photos scheduled for my other blog...but nothing planned for here. So I will see you in two or three days probably.

Good luck to Sarah and family on their move, and you please don't wear yourself out! I know that moving is a huge effort, it is good they have some strong backs helping out! Entertaining Lorelei is perfect for all, especially you Grandma ~ enjoy the time! We will be here when you get back to us!

Good Luck to them...The tree in our yard that I posted about is really starting to turn now. I can't wait for more to turn.

Well I know that kids will be glad when that move is over... Moving is traumatic. Glad you can be there to help... Take care --and hurry back when you can.

Hugs,
Betsy

A nice shot form a previous fall. Nice to hear that good people showed up to help with the move. I hope everything continues to go well.

Moving is a huge chore, but it is good that there is good help available. Don't work too hard and we'll see you when you get back.

Fall comes really early where you live!

I'm sure this is a hard time for you, Rose. Soon everyone will be settled and you'll be into new routines, I hope.

It's got to make you feel good that Sarah and Jeremy have such good friends.

You are all going to be dog-tired when this is done, but I'm glad to hear there is so much help coming from younger people! Friends are great to have...better than gold.

You have been busy!
Seems you had the best job in all -watching Lorelei. :)
We have changing leaves here. I'm so ready for fall too.

Sorry I've been missing. I've told myself I can't post anymore till I've caught up on comments. :)

I've been noticing color coming to trees too. Jeremy and Sarah's friends sound like keepers.
