We are officially living in the Canyon!

It's been a long two weeks, but we slept here starting Saturday night. It's definitely different. I wake up before the sun rises, and apparently, so do the roosters! I finally got the computer set up this evening so I thought I would say hi. I still have a bit of unpacking to do but we are 75% done. I will post pictures as soon as the place is presentable, and I will start cooking again as soon as I can figure out where to put all of the spices!

Top 10 things that have made this move a bit interesting:
10. Dan and I have completely different ideas of how to pack and move.
9. It has been over 100 degrees all week.
8. There are A LOT of bugs in the country.
7. Annie (one of my dogs) does not like Sara or Heidi (the neighbor's dogs.)
6. We have no hot water or shower until at least tomorrow, possibly Wednesday.
5. I will have to keep 85% of my clothes and shoes outside in the barn.
4. My nice big office is now a bookshelf.
3. The TV does not fit on the TV shelf. This is a very big deal.
2. Cox Cable salespeople are sneaky little "cocks."
1. This house is only 495 square feet.

I must have missed where you said you were moving! Your house looks adorable!!!

And yes, I too learned when we moved at the end of last year that Mr Veg and I pack boxes very differently. Worse yet, we unpack and store stuff very differently when we get there (but that was quickly fixed by me :P)

Good luck settling in and I look forward to kitchen pics ;)

Moving can be so exhausting, but it's so nice when you're finally done. And, your house is super cute! I love yellow houses!

Your house looks great! I can sympathize...moving is so so hard. I am sorry! But it sounds like you are getting settled in and soon it will feel like home :o)

Wow, only 495 square feet? How come the downsize? I do like living simply, and moving helps me to clean out all of the stuff I don't use. I live in a small apartment about 550 square feet, and that is a small but bearable size - I can't imagine less than that, though! Despite its smallness, you do have a beautiful house in a beautiful area.

Congrats on the new digs Joni! It's so cute, and how fun for you to live in the country. I love waking up to roosters.

Good luck with the rest of the unpacking and organizing.

What a lush setting for your new home! Hope you feel settled in soon. By the way, I finally got around to the Cinco de Mayo burgers and they were excellent! Thanks for the recipe.

I'm loving this view! I am glad to hear that your nice big office turned into a bookshelf; how interesting it is to see it later, in your future articles! Our writing services will fill up your blog with original texts!
