Thank God I'm A Country Girl!

Yup, as they say, it's a done deal. All the papers are signed and the farm is ours. The wall will be fixed to our satisfaction with a negotiated escrow account paying for it. We are pinching ourselves trying to believe it has all happened. And so DURN FAST!The first thing we did was unload the beds and then had to set them up. We have done this many times with this particular bed. But we were operating on little food, and an overdose of adrenalin from all the excitement of the day. Nevertheless, it got assembled and then the bed was made.

Not so fast! I have a new bed of my own upstairs that had to get assembled. This required finding the drill and a bit to screw in about 32 screws. Worth it, worth it, worth it!! What a great night's sleep I had, under my new pink sheets and my hand quilted quilt.

Yup, I hand quilted and machine pieced this baby way back in the late 80's. First time on a bed!

After a hot shower I plopped into bed and never moved once, exhausted and happy.

At 4:30am, precisely, the biggest rooster began crowing and we were up. The flock spent the night perched on the potting shed roof. They quiet down at dusk and seem frozen in place. I'll have a picture soon.

O Wait! I am now in the motel, picking up Popeye, and am taking advantage of their internet connection. It will no doubt be days before I get dsl connected at home. Home! Hahhahaha!

So back to the day on the farm. At 5:45am Farmer Dave had the ramps in place and backed the mower off the truck. We are ready to work.

Thanks for all your prayers, which I know did the trick. We are SOOOOOO HAPPPPPPYYY!!

  1. Sigh. What a relief! I am SOOO happy for you! I'm with you every step of the way in my prayers and daydreams. But if you couldn't stand the cardinals, how will you put up with the roosters?

  2. See, I knew it would all work out. Get a pro in there to do that wall and easy-peasy, you are all set!! You can add some fun birds to your colection (tho not peacocks unless you like listening to them screetch) by visiting http://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/index.html - they have the most interesting birds!!

    Pace yourselves there are no awards for doing it all lightning fast, only exhaustion.

  6. Congratulations on moving in - enjoy! I look forward to reading more about your adventures on the farm and how it inspires you to paint and quilt. Now relax and enjoy your new surroundings and reflections on miracles that do happen today.

  8. I am thrilled that you are finally through the process of buying and can start having fun. I can't wait to see the picture of the chickens on the roof. I was raised on a farm but our chickens weren't out loose.
    Love, Wanda

  9. Yeah! You just need a couple dead men in that wall and you will be good to go! I love that! Can you tell?

    What time did those roosters crow? And how is it they multiplied? Do people eat roosters? What happens to them then? Do they just die of old age?.... or????

    Melody & Dave - Please keep us up to date on your new life. It seems such a good fit, and you seem truly renewed. You may find that your art flurishes also. Blessings.

  12. Welcome to the south! It's going to be fun to read about how much you're enjoying Nov/Dec/Jan/Feb's lack of cold and snow. A year has more life to it when you're away from cold and snow.

    Just about the time you get settled in TN you're going to get a good offer on the house in Cary.

    I'm very glad for both of you.

  13. Jumping up and down with the excitement of newlyweds? Should be! The very best to you both on this new step in your life/love journey together.

    You are sounding like a couple of excited teenies. Glad you are happy. Do you have more 'moving' trips to make or did you manage it all in 1 trip?

    Tell Dave that thing is no longer a lawn mower, it's a tractor. He's a gentleman farmer now!

  16. I so happy you arrived safe and sound at your new home. You both seem to be having a fun time setting up the new house. You should know that roosters begin crowing when it is still dark.....get use to it. I am a country girl and wake up to goats and chickens making lots of noise early in the morning.
