Here Goes...

So what in the heck have I been up to?  Well, I moved out of my big house in Los Angeles and moved into a little Doll House close to my shop.  No, the house hasn't sold, it's not even listed yet.  Lotsa changes in my life these past (almost) 9 months.  

You see, I searched for a place in June and July since the house was supposed to be on the market in June of last year and we were planning to move soon anyhow.  Then I find the house isn't gonna go on the market yet and to make a long story short, there has been so much disagreement (for some time) in our relationship in general not just about the renovation.  

I got tired of the drama so on my birthday last year (August) I gave myself the perfect gift, one of peace and a serene environment!  I signed the rental agreement and then moved in slowly and slept there by mid September.  Moving is so darn disruptive to the flow of one's life and I'm still not totally settled in.  At least I can get organized now which is what I'm slowly doing but of course this place is soooo small that I can only fit what is really necessary; the rest is stored in the 1 car garage adjacent to the house.  It's been: unpack and repack boxes to store away for the time being.

Yes, I'm living alone for the first time in my entire life and it's weird!   I had to move out so I could have a calm organized space so I can get up everyday and go run my little business.  I can't have a pet where I am now but I will someday!  Having a pet would ease the total "ALONE-NESS" but I can understand the landlord's rules. There is no enclosed yard and the property has 5 homes on it.  It is way back off the street on a private drive and is so quiet and peaceful.

I'll leave you with a pic of my new place that I took before I moved in.  Now it has flowers in the front so I'll post an updated pic soon.
One more thing, when you live alone you find what you eat and what you don't (and it goes bad).  I eat my share of butter (hee, hee).

I'll post some pics of  last weekend's girls day out at the Huntington Garden soon. 
       Have a fabulous weekend!

Springtime Fresh

Hey.....Blogger forced me into their new interface so I gotta get used to it.  I hope it works better, as I always had trouble with putting pictures on my blog.  I came here to do a test post today.

We had rain much of yesterday and we even had snow in the local mountains, too.  We're supposed to have 80 degree days next week so I bet the ski slopes are crazy busy this weekend.  Lovely day today, sunny, cool and fresh with a light breeze.  Gonna do some gardening when I close the shop this afternoon.

My friend Tracy is coming for a visit next weekend and we're going to a local public garden so I'll have some pics to show you of that visit.

Yup, this pic was easier to upload, yeah!

Hope you're all enjoying your weekend doing whatever you set your mind to!
