BUT, despite the two days that I was near death....I am feeling good these days. A little different to be in a three story place....not knowing what's downstairs when I'm upstairs. Hearing more sounds at night. But my boy Quincy will protect me. Yep...my fireball of a handsome boy. Who am I kidding? He'll be the first to run under the covers. Lol! Hmm..come to think of it no different than the men I've been with in my life (but I digress). Oh yes and all of a sudden the kitties have a new fun habit. Oh it's so fun you can't even imagine. Ask mom! In the middle of the night I'll hear a faint...bang, bang, bang. I lay in bed motionless. First I'm trying to figure out what floor it's coming from. Second, trying to figure out which cupboard someone is trying to open with their sweet little paws; and third, deciding if I need to get up to traipse down the thirty steps just to scold someone. So, I choose the fourth, turn over, whip the blankets over my head and go to sleep. :)
Here are a few pictures. I warn you not much decorating yet! I'll post more later! Thank you all for your well wishes. I was a bit burned out the past few days to post. I'm now getting ready to fly home next week. I will be more active after the holidays as I've said before. It's been one crazy year-end. However, I will be by to visit you all the next few days....promise!!
My new enemy...
A few small touches in the kitchen...
Quincy: Oh mom...that was way too much work watching you go up and down those stairs. Next time can you do it where I can't see because it just exhausts me and kinda hurts my neck.
My canopy bed. Not decorated the way I want but had to throw a few things together quickly to feel somewhat at home. I picture more and more billowy sheers all around and above me.
You can't see the other side of this big room in the picture but there is a place perfect for a vintage vanity. :) I think I will go for the elegant 1940's look with that. Oh but ONLY after I get rid of at least thirty things! Two things you never realize until you move. How much junk...woops...things you have and how you failed to dust in certain places!

Just one more day in my abode of only a year and tomorrow....another day...another new day in my new home. I'm anxious and can't wait to get it all over with. There's something so exhausting about packing up all your belongings to move again and yet something thrilling about a new place (even if it is 20 steps away).
I just wanted to drop a quick note to say hello and hopefully this weekend, preferably Sunday evening sitting next to a warm fire by the fireplace with my kitties, things will be back to normal once again.
I'm a little excited actually. I may change up the decor again. I am thinking adding a bit more vintage in the mix. I am breaking out the canopy bed to put in the master bedroom with white shears...my new room is much bigger than the room I have now. Maybe setting up a vanity area where I can do my hair and makeup instead of the bathroom (using the furniture I already have, of course). A little more romantic white in the bedroom. Oh I don't know...we'll see. I just wanna get in and settled before the holiday!
Once I'm in this weekend I will take a few pictures and let you all see the new place.
The cats are all doing well. Emma is still struggling a bit on the prednisolone..upsets her tummy. Mocha has gained some healthy weight and Quincy is just....well Quincy. Lol! He always seems to be so happy go lucky!
Hang in there all...I will be by to visit very soon and to show off some wonderful gifts that came in the mail to me.

In the meantime....I have been out and about riding with the horses. I was invited with my dearest blogging and horse riding friend Kacy over at All Horse Stuff to meet a new trainer for my very first dressage lesson! I also met her riding partner Jen who she rides with on Mondays. Man the new trainer was tough but I loved it! Kacy took all these wonderful pictures. She is such a great photographer...I promised next time I would remember my camera so I could, for once, take pictures of her! :)
Kacy riding Washashe...her beautiful spirited mare...
Jen taking her lesson on her wonderful Mustang, Simeon...
Meeting Harley, a gorgeous paint gelding...who graciously let me ride him for this lesson...
Listening to teacher...

Aren't the details just adorable?
Even Quincy needed to get in on the action. Apparently his nose needs to approve everything that comes through the mail. LOL!
I'm using this bookmark for my current read (Julia's Chocolates). Don't ya love the nail polish. Michelle is going through a midlife crisis and the polish is bringing joy and diversity to her life. LOL! Okay, humor me, will ya?
THANK YOU, Patti! Love ya!!!
