Moving.....and New Possibilities
If you think I have taken a vacation, you are mistaken. Moving from the farm is much more than I could have ever imagined. There are days I burst out in tears. I'm on an emotional roller coaster at the moment, trying to make decisions on what to keep and what must be left behind.
So, please bare with me as I make this transition to my new adventure.
Soon, I will be inviting you into my new "old" home, Das Kleine Haus. This is the vintage door bell that needs no electricity for it to work.
Inside the front door is the bell....
The door glass allows light in, while preventing a direct view into the room.
Although I will miss the farm, this is a good move for me......

Hello Meggie - the doorbell is beautiful, and I have the same glass in my front doorway! Good luck with the packing - it's so much more than just ' things' isn't it? XReplyDelete
Oh, Scarlet....this is such a difficult move. I know you understand.Delete
It's not easy to move and sort all you memories. I will think about you.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Elna.Delete
Dear Meggie, You are very courageous. This is a very big desicion.. I will do this on this november.. I will be retired and I will changed all my world If I can.... I will move this terrible city on november.. You will be my teacher and I will follow your foot steps...ReplyDelete
All best wishes...
Thank you, Beck....I'll be right there when you retire in November. It will be a big change for you.Delete
Meggie, we've all been there, so we understand. When I moved from my last house I hid in the laundry room when the removal team arrived,and had a complete melt down.I sobbed so hard I felt sick.ReplyDelete
Sending you a BIG hug. All will be well.
Thank you for reminding I'm not the only one who has made a big change. I'll try to stay clear of the laundry room!Delete
Oh Meggie.... such a HUGE undertaking. One box at a time, one day at at time.... slow and steady. It's not so much the packing and the move... its the memories that come flooding back as you unearth each treasure from it's hiding space. So draining... Hugs to you XOReplyDelete
Thank you for your kind words....I think a couple of more weeks and I will see the light at the end of the tunnel!Delete
Sadness and happiness all at the same time. Wishing you joy in your new beautiful home Meggie. I look forward to watching you turn it into your own. Take all the lovely memories with you from the farm. Hope you can take some plant settings as well for remembrance.ReplyDelete
Thank you for reminding me....I need to start potting a few things each day to give me a start at the other house. I will be starting over with flower and vegetable gardens.Delete
Sending you love and hugs, dear Meggie. It must be hard but it's a new adventure, I'm sure you'll be happy in your new home, you just need to settle in. And then you'll have more time to do other things. Lots of love xxxReplyDelete
Thanks, Emma.....I want to try some of your "daisey squares" after I get settled in.Delete
I'm so excited for you.....ReplyDelete
Thanks so much....I checked out your post from yesterday. Looks like you and family are having a wonderful time!Delete
When we thought about moving a few years ago to get closer to the kids, I had a hard time just packing up photos and books to "stage" the house--so, I know what you must be going through. I just try to remember the words my father said to me once, "I'm proud that you take chances and aren't afraid to change and try something new!" That's what I'm saying to you, dear friend. Change is a part of life and to embrace it makes everything go easier.ReplyDelete
Also, I know from experience, it's okay to cry and be sad...that too is a part of life. I love you, Susan XOXO
Thank you, Susan....your encouragement means a lot to me. I know this is a good move for me!Delete
The really difficult thing about moving is not the big decisions like which room will be the spare room, it is all of the million tiny decisions that need to be made. They're the ones that give you gray hair!ReplyDelete
That seems to be what I'm dealing with....all the tiny details....and the worry about selling the farm. Now that is a big one to worry about!Delete
Hugs from Scotland - moving is never easy and an added life style change makes it even harder. Be brave and keep going it will be worth it in the end. keep smiling.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Pamela....and hello to you in Scotland. I can't believe the support from today's post. I want to cry....again!Delete
Oh Meggie, I wish we could all help you to uproot and settle into your new place.It will be hard for you to leave the farm,but you are approaching a new chapter in your life and I'm sure you are doing the right thing.Moving from a place you have loved is difficult but you have your wonderful memories and will make lots of new ones in your new home.XReplyDelete
You are so right, Anne. My life is about to change....and looking forward is good. My new home is going to be an adventure, too! It will be a scaled-down property, easier for me to handle. There will be more time for crafts and sewing, and fun trips.Delete
It will be so exciting for you and I must admit I'm a little envious! I do however understand the turmoil you must be going through. Best of luck and a hug from me too. xReplyDelete
Thank you so much....for sending me a hug!Delete
I've now tried to send you 2 messages so I hope third time lucky. Sending you a big hug to help you through a scary and exciting time! xReplyDelete
Well, it looks like at least two of your messages came through. Thanks for your understanding.Delete
Good luck with move Meggie. I'm thinking of you. JxReplyDelete
