Getting settled

Wow! Can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted!
What a whirlwind that month has been!

We've been in the new place for 2 weeks today & we are LOVING it! (Thank you to our great friends & family that helped move all our stuff over here in one day!! They totally ROCK!!)

The area we moved to is only 20-30 minutes away from the city, but it feels like we are in the middle of the forest! Beautiful views of the foothills & millions of Ponderosa Pines everywhere!
It's so peaceful & beautiful here! No more traffic noise!!! Honestly, the only time there's a traffic jam is when we have to wait for the coal trains to pass before getting onto the highway a short distance away!

On our first morning here, we had 3 deer come into the yard as if some movie director had queued them up just for us...little did we know that this would be a daily occurrence!!!

These were all shot within that first week & yesterday, we had TWELVE of them in the side's mating season & we witnessed a couple of bucks fighting over a female! (sorry no pix of that, was too awestruck to remember my camera!)

I have managed to unpack the main living areas (kitchen, baths, family room & Maggie's room) before we leave to Maui today for our annual timeshare trip. I am looking forward to a little break from the chaos & it will be good for Maggie to have a week to decompress after her first week at the new school (which she seems to love!). When we return, I will be unpacking some of my studio, Christmas shopping & then it's off to Nick's family's for the Holiday! I'll need another vacation after all that!

That's it for now.
I'll try to hop on while we're on vacation...I miss writing & catching up on things!

Have a wonderful day!
