What a Week...

What a week it has been... the more I unpack the more mess I seem to have...I keep telling myself every box unpacked brings me closer to the end...it is a time-consuming job and I am impatient for it to be done...I long to feel settled...at home...it seems a long way off right now!

The great room looking into the library/music room at right...books everywhere...the floors are littered with stuff...gee I have too much...

I still do not have all my strength back from the kidney infection...I can only work in spurts...if I sit down to rest, I drift into a fitful sleep...I fall into bed before dark every night...I am weary...

This is my fountain area of the lanai...
I needed to have some little place of quiet and calm...I took this shot the night before the moving truck came...it does not look like this today...but I can still hear the water fall and that always refreshes my soul...

It will become more permanent once I find all my garden pots...no idea where things are...the boxes are so mixed up...the labels were not very descriptive..

So I am creating my environs this week...I think I will take a break today and go shopping for garage shelving and baskets for storage...I need to get away from the boxes...I promise not to neglect my blog and stay in touch with everyone...when I find my teapot...we'll have a housewarming tea party...

U Be Creative Today!!

You and your belongings are all there together, just take you time getting comfortable.

A fountain is wonderfully soothing isn't it?

When you find that teapot I'll be there for the housewarming!

Good luck with all the unpacking. It's not my favorite activity either. I'm getting more and more anti "stuff" the older I get. In between deadlines (and berry picking) I'm currently trying to go through parts of the house and get rid of things. LOTS of things if possible. 'Am still keeping the things I need and/or love, but everything superfluous must go!!!

Hey Rebecca! Looks like you made a lot of progress while I was away on vacation last week. Now pace yourself with all of this so you don't totally exhaust yourself.
