Moving In The Summer Heat............

Again! We were doing the same thing two summers ago when we moved to this area from Maryland for my husband's new job. The thing that makes it worth it is the excitement of moving back out to the country from town and living in a farmhouse again. We are moving to a community about an hour away to be closer to hubby's work. So, here goes again! Thanks to everyone that has been checking in while I've been away. It has been a crazy summer and we won't be all moved in until the end of July, so I still won't be able to post regularly until we get settled.

But soon I'll be posting about playing in creeks, sitting on the front porch while gazing at the mountains, and being right down the road from my grandfather's homeplace. Full circle....back to my roots.

In the meantime, for all you shutterbugs...... My friend and fellow blogger, Fred First, over at Fragments From Floyd has started a neat project called "Unplanted Gardens: America's Roadside Bloomery". He's asking for photographs of roadside wildflowers and is starting a gallery of them. Go here to get more information and to view the gallery so far. I plan on taking my camera out today and documenting some of the local flora. Maybe I'll see some of your photos there soon........

Also, what a treat when I checked Anna's blog for the first time in a long while, and saw this beautiful close-up of my sister. Anna lives across the pond, in London, along with my sister. And her description of my sis is quite accurate. How I miss her.............

Until next time........ :)

So good to see you again! Welcome back!

Is moving in the heat better or worse than moving in the dead of winter? I'm torn myself . . . January wasn't much fun!

I've been checking too, so glad to have you back. I have missed you. Moving is a full time job so take it easy and when you are ready i will gladly look at pictures and thoughts about creeks and your roots.
That was a wonderful picture of Anna. Glad you were able to see it.

I saw that photo on Anna's blog and wondered who she was - very pretty~!

Good luck in the move and come back soon.

Anna said...

Hey friend!

I am all for a get together with you! I am so glad that you back and trying to get settled. I so enjoyed my day with your sister....she is a true gift in my life and I sure will miss her. I think I captured her in that shot too. :) A few people have thought that was me just like Sue...funny.

Take care...and let me know if you need anything!

Mike said...

Good to see you again. Hoping all the moving activity goes well. Good luck and my prayers are with you during this time.

Is this a pic of the house you're moving into?

Hope all goes well with the move. That's always such a hard job.

bluemountainmama said...

yes, jam..... that is our new house. we'll just be renting while we get to know the area and decide if it's where we want to settle and buy.......

Elise said...

Hooray! I'm confused, though - is the picture of your old residence, or new?
Anyway, I'm glad you're around again - there have been so many prayers lifted on your behalf. I look forward to seeing what *else* God has in store for you this year! (((Amy)))

bluemountainmama said...

that's our new house, elise. i'm also excited about all the new beginnings... in so many areas of my life. thanks for the prayers, friend. wink..... :)

I enjoyed stumbling onto your blog. We also moved recently. In fact, we moved three times in three years--from NJ to OK and then to Ferrum and now to Penhook where we hope this is it! I'm tired of moving farm animals, tractors and a trampoline!

I also enjoyed your breastfeeding post. I feel the same way. Breastfeeding was one of the most wonderful things I ever did. A peaceful, precious time in my life.

If you have time in your moving and need a break for a few minutes, check out my blog: www.GreenerPastures--ACityGirlGoesCountry.blogspot.com

Oooh, I'm jealous. It will be a few years while we pay off our debt and pay down our home in town but we're looking forward to moving to the country someday. :)

Your farmhouse looks charming!

Best wishes with the move, I don't envy you that part of it.
