We will see what today brings.

Forgot to mention about the visitors in my last post. Michael's nephew and family are here this weekend from Alabama. Busy weekend planned! The patents went to a wedding last night, and we babysat the four boys, ages 11 to 5. It went very well, the boys are great, the are having a blast in our neighborhood with the school and the woods so close, right out the door in fact. They are enchanted with the practically tame deer, who are obliging and show themselves, even up close. They brought their skate boards, and a found a place to practice. One of the boys mentioned wanting a typewriter, and we could oblige with that, we had an old underwood, which we kept dust covered on a shelf thinking someone would want this antique piece. Totally happy boy!
Anyway, the old building is ready to collapse, the owner is selling it, and it was time to move.
We found an industrial park with a vacancy that suited us, the price was right, it is only 12 miles from home, and we loved it. It has windows! It has a non-leaking roof!! It has heat!! And a sink with hot water!!! And in a safe neighborhood! All things we didn't have before. We covered the table and the machines every night with plastic, just in case rained. No more.
My son-in-laws and my daughters and their children helped move, which we very much appreciated. My co-mother-in-law cleaned, which was totally necessary, since everything coming out of the old place was covered in dirt.

In the meantime we enjoyed a beautiful fall, hiking most weekends, I and it is so tempting to photograph every tree.
