Cali Home....

I have been uber busy getting our home in Texas ready to go on the market...AND it did on Friday May 1st...Please asking all my prayer buddies to "pray", "pray", "pray" that it sells quickly. I just know it will be a WONDERFUL home for a family, just as it was for us for nearly 20 years. It looks FAB if I do say so myself.

On to Cali...NOW...acutally arrived here on Sat. morning...and this is what "greeted" me at my new home OH YES...I have peonies...I am so thrilled...I Love, Love, Love peonies...and now I have 3 beautiful peony bushes and right now they are LOADED with buds. I am loving my new yard, it is full of all kinds of roses, cala lilies, alstromeria, dianthus, lavender, wisteria, fruit trees AND PEONIES...I am in flower heaven. The previous owner had such a wonderful talent when growing all these beauties...I'm just hoping I can learn quickly and keep them just as lovely. I know I'm going to have fun learning all about growing things I never imagined possible...I'm completely THRILLED!

I will be heading back to Texas as we still haven't officially moved to Cali...we did buy beds and a few household items to have here when we need them and should be moving out here...very soon.

I will post pictures of all my glorious blooms when I arrive back in Texas and can download them from my camera. In the meantime...I'm loving the beauty that now surrounds me, learning how to "get around" a new city and praying my old home sells...very soon!

Tootles to all...I'll keep you posted...Let the ADVENTURE begin!

Teresa! You lucky girl!! I love the blooms, mine aren't bloomed yet. I can't wait for you to show us your home.

I don't remember, what made the move possible? I have bad short (and heck, long) term memory!

Those are just beautiful! I just know the house will sell soon and you'll be on your way to 'fun in the sun....CA. style'. Yes, it's going to be a great adventure...that's a great way to look at it! New things to see and do, new people to meet...and most impo...new shops to shop in! Ain't life grand?

I hope you make lots of good new memories in your new home Teresa and I'll be praying for the sale of your old one. Take care.

Hi sweet friend!

I'm back and it's fun to be blogging again.

I've been in your shoes...trying to sell one home and moving to another state and setting up a new one. It's not easy, but attitude is everything and it sounds like you've got a good one. Change is exciting. And the old saying is true "Make new friends, but keep the old.....". Can't wait to hear all about your new home. We'd love to see pics too.

Hugs!
Kat

Oh, Teresa, I am so happy for you! Nothing says *home* quite as much as peonies for me. I know that it's an old fashioned thing, but the scent of peonies goes straight to my heart and transports me home to my Mom and Granny.
Your new home sounds like a little slice of heaven on earth - enjoy!

I can't wait to see more pictures of all your beautiful flowers. Good luck with the move and transition and hope your home in TX sells quickly. I just know you're going to love California. You can stick just any old thing in the ground there and it flourishes! I only wish our field lavender could looke like the lavender in that area that just spreads through flower beds like fire aunts do in Texas.

Can't wait to hear more about you move. I hope you think of this whole transition in life as an adventure and enjoy every moment!
