Happy 4th of July and Happy 4th night in our new house! Man it’s been a hectic few days. We are getting close to some semblance of getting settled, though sometimes I think unpacking will never end!
Franny and I took a break from the house chores and took part in the Lake Forest 4th of July parade this morning. It wasn’t easy getting up so early, but it turned out we had a blast (and a good long nap when we got home). Franny was invited to participate in the parade with the Angel’s – the family that owns Zutter Innovative. They have miniature horses that they love to show off, and we never turn down an opportunity to be in a parade. Turns out I ended up riding along on the golf cart, even though I thought I’d just be sitting and watching the parade. There were about 120 entries in the parade and we were #61 in the lineup. Lots of fun things to see – from marching bands, floats and horses, to baseball and soccer teams and various car clubs. We were the only mini horse entry, however. The Angel’s love their minis and enjoy showing them off. It’s all good fun, and a nice break from not only the moving, but a great way to celebrate Independence Day with good people.
It’s almost embarrassing how many boxes the movers had to haul upstairs to the new scrapbook room. But I am taking the opportunity to re-organize everything and tidy up in my new room. I did give up on sorting through the Clip-it-Up tonight, but will resume in the morning. We went to IKEA yesterday and I bought a glass-topped table for scrapping. (Great tip, Annette, thanks!) I am looking forward to being “back in business” real soon….and even better, I will have more space and should be uber creative now that I can get to everything and actually know what I have! HA!
Hope you are all enjoying your holiday weekend!
