Four and a Half More Days

We're getting real close to owning the beautiful Yadkin County house.  I'm overcome with gratitude, anticipation, relief, and peace.  Also overwhelmed with the moving process!  That'll be a doozy.  Just gotta think of it as one of those take-a-day-at-a-time things.  But once we're all in there, I know the plants will be so happy, the two kitties will have a big time figuring everything out and then get to their patrolling duties :-) , and the two humans will be worn out but very happy.  This is a dream come true. That is not what either of us have come to expect from Life, so that makes it that much sweeter. The screen porch (pictured) will need to
have a few places patched before mosquito season hits, and I'd like to put more of a railing across the bottom part all the way around.  But TheSellers did such a great job on this porch.  It has a ceiling fan, a wooden floor, and is just a perfect size.  TheSellers are leaving the porch swing that was made by a family member of theirs.  You can't tell from this pic but the detail on it is amazing.  My grandma had a porch swing on her front porch.  It had a soft quilt on it and we would gather up some kittens (there were always kittens at her house) and swing and swing.  The kittens would go to sleep, of course, and often so would we.  Grandma had a white female cat named "Sambo" ;-) and another white feral cat named "Wildie" because she and her kittens were all wild and very skittish around us.  I had about fifteen cousins that would gather at Grandma's and we'd play Red Light, Green Light and Simon Says and Hide & Seek.  Those were great days.  This porch reminds me of those warm Alabama days with my cousins and the white kittens.  Four and a half more days!!!
