 Here you are seeing the new front door to the foyer of the home we are hoping to get. We are currently in negotiations. We have to vacate the current home by mid May. It was five years ago yesterday that a house fire ravaged our home. We moved into a smaller house as a temporary measure hoping to get back into the fixed up place but it was not to be. 
   Now we are attempting to move into a newer home more like the one we left behind. Buddy and I are excited. Hubby has given us lots of encouragement to find a new home and get us resettled. It has made us more active and less seated by our laptop and iPad. What an adventure we are having measuring and planning where things will go.

Here's the house we that burned.
Here's what happened to Buddy's room.
Here's what the new home looks like.
And here's a masculinely decorated room Buddy has selected as his. The walls are a pale blue denim. The lighting was very poor when I snapped the photo.

   We shall be quite busy so our posts may be even more sporadic than ever
but we shall be thinking of you and trying to stay in touch as much as we are able. May you continue to be patient with us.

P.S. We are most appreciative of your kind comments. Buddy especially loves it when he gets a mention from you. Thanks for that.

March is here already and we are still surrounded by mountains of snow. Buddy and I decided we'd have a fun lunch to end February. We just had to get out of the house. We wanted to see if we could find anything green. We ate at Pickle Barrel. Here's Buddy eating stir fry with chopsticks.

We didn't find much green.
But we did get help with the snow shovelling. Look at the huge pile that a sidewalk plough put right behind our car. It was the very heavy type of snow, not good for us to move but daughter came from downtown to get us cleared so we could move again.
