August!!! has been quite some time since I have posted.  A lot of things have happened. 

The hubby and I decided that we would put our lake home in New Hampshire on the market when we returned to NH for the summer.  We made the decision that we really like living here in Florida and having another home up north made no sense. 

As for the community I live in, I have acquired the job of running the Craft Table at the Women's Bazaar in November.  I had one meeting prior to leaving for NH that was less than successful but I can only hope it goes up from there.

So we left for NH in mid-June.  We were home for two days trying to get the place ready to put on the market and someone came by.  A friend of a friend of a friend kind of thing.  I had mentioned to a lake neighbor that we would be putting the house on the market.  The next day we showed it to the wife.  That night they made an offer.  We utilized our real estate agent because I refuse to do things without one.  Too many things can go wrong.  So....long story short, we sold to this couple.  Everybody was happy; hugs all around at the closing, which was on July 30th. 

We did not wish to live out of suitcases for the remainder of the summer so on August 1st we hit the road at 4 am.  We arrived back at our home on Sunday, August 2nd.  Tired, but happy to be home.  So now we truly are Florida residents (or...raisins, q-tips.  haha)  It is hot here but hey, that's why we have air conditioning!

Having issues with the iPad and the mail account app which now doesn't allow me to send my pics to my email.  Very frustrating.  It is apparently a google issue and not an apple issue.  I have tried to fix it but it just isn't happening.  I'll just keep reading the apple support group to see if anything new comes along.  I am not the only one with this issue.  Not sure if that is comforting or not!!!

I have not unpacked my sewing machine yet.  Honestly we have not even been back a full week yet and my husband is installing new patio slider doors.  He is doing the one to the kitchen and the next one will be in the computer/sewing room.  I think I will see when he is doing this room and perhaps that will determine whether the sewing machine comes out of its secure space. 

I have lots of grand plans and hope to get to them very soon.  One thing I'd like to do is start a little stitch and bitch group.  Great therapy!  We shall see.  I have to talk to the HOA President (of course, I'm on the Board but....follow procedures!) and see about the ability to use the clubhouse for that kind of thing.  I know there are crafty people here and they might be interested.  I'm finding that I need more creative activity and I'm just not ready to join a guild here.  I am really not sure if I ever will be again. 

So that's what is going on.  We do have lots of plans for the house.  We just need to update it a bit and make it more comfortable for us.  It is not his mother's house anymore!  Flooring is on order for the living and dining area and that will be a huge improvement.  

Okay....that's it now.  Have a great weekend.
