Resting

My body forced me to take
a day of rest today...

I started out
thinking it would be a
productive day...
emptied a few more boxes
putting things away
tormenting the cats...

then a shower
after that my body
said "no more"
there went my plans
to pack another load of stuff
from the old house
maybe clean a bit

instead...
a three hour nap!

Now as I sit
at the computer
looking out the window
at the bird feeder
squirrels in the backyard
feeling tired is all worth it
soon
I'll be able to enjoy this house
and yard
as much as the cats do...

the other day
resting in between
chasing Olivia around


Olivia watching the birds

a few days ago...
the snow is gone now



Olivia the first few days

living under the blankets

That is a lot of work you did in a short time and with work, you need a few days rest;)

Good to see the kitties are enjoying their new home and I know that wonderful view is a joy.

I can almost feel how tired you are through your words... but, then again, your words can also almost make me see your smile while staring out the window into your yard! Take a break and renew! You know the whole AAPG gang wishes they could be there to help!

I think your babies are happy! Sure didn't take them long to adjust! Moving is hard hard work and taking a nap is a must! Glad you are taking care of yourself!
You are going to LOVE your yard..... did you say your snow is gone! I am jealous!!!
Hugs!

No wonder you're tired...moving is horrendous! I'm so glad to see Olivia out from under the covers! You have already unpacked quite a bit, if your previous posts were any indication. Rest up a day or two and you'll take the weekend by storm!
Happy settling in!
