The Walls Are Empty

Two car garage full
Work table, car,
yard sale items
Triple stacked
Couch, dresser,lamps
Bentwood rocker too
Only the bare essentials
will be taken in the truck
Books have been divided
Some for yard sale,
some in boxes to take
At the end of the month
we begin a new adventure
Pack the truck on a Friday
Clean house one last time
and drive away on Saturday
October 30 we are moving
to a small house in a small town
We are getting ready
The walls are empty
Our hearts are full

This is the new house.
Soon to be home.

DJan said...

You are moving into a place with a white picket fence! That is my all time dream house. It looks like a nice place, TB. And I hope you show us what you do with it. Hearts full, indeed.

TB! You are moving to this cute house??? OH YAY! I was planning to email you about that dog dish which I made for you, but you have seen it already :) It is big for a yellow lab, and looks a million times better in person than in the photo!

Oz Girl said...

I love it. And I really adore new adventures. Wishing you both all the best!!! :-)

(The moving part, not so much fun, lots of work, but always a great opportunity to clean out closets and minimize.)

A very cute little house. We did the same thing moving from the 4th largest city in the US to a house outside a small town (less than 10,000 people) in the country though it has taken us 2 years to make the transition and we still come in town often to work. soon the new shop will be finished and we will be able to do all out work out there.

Kulio said...

It looks wonderful! Look at the mature trees in the back, I love it! Fresh and new. Congratulations!

Jeanie said...

A move is no fun, but the new adventure makes it all worthwhile.

Hilary said...

Oh congratulations! I'm so happy for you. Your place looks lovely and I'm looking forward to hearing more about it. I don't envy the packing process but the unpacking and making it yours will be wonderful.

In answer to your question about whether or not I'll photograph that vine in other seasons. It's a great idea. I hadn't thought about it but if that vine is still there through the late autumn and winter, I'll be sure to do so.

TALON said...

This will sound crazy, but I love moving. I love a new adventure and I love the look of your new home!

Hope all goes well and smoothly and that you settle into your new home and new adventure beautifully, TechnoBabe!

Congratulations

all the best.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

How delightful! It's always wonderful to lighten the load. And your house looks almost exactly like a house in the NC mountains where I lived for 7 years. Good luck in your new life!

Dave King said...

No, the walls aren't empty, they only look that way. They, too, are getting ready - to receive you.

Eileen said...

Oh, this is so sweet!
And I'm wishing you all the best in your new home!

I was here a few days ago, but Blogger wouldn't let me comment on any blogs, so I did a post of comments on my own blog. Today is much better and I'm so glad I got here to wish you happiness on your way to a new chapter in your life.

Hey! My verification word is 'blessedi'! Many Blessings to you!

Jeni said...

The new house really looks lovely and very inviting too. Thinking back on the numerous times in my life I have moved though, I really admire that you are this organized with the move thing and this early in the timetable too! Hope it all goes smooth as glass for you.

Jillsy said...

I envy you! Always love new adventures! We've been in our house for 15 years and we are beginning to day dream about moving somewhere new. Unfortunately, our business is keeping us where we are right now. Before our house, I probably moved at least every 5 years.

Looking forward to hearing all about your new surroundings!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hey Techno, just stopping by to wish you a FANTASTIC Garage Sale. I hope by the end of the day your garage is empty and your pockets are FULL.

Moving to a new home is a new adventure; new possibilities and opportunities. It's almost like getting a fresh start.

Clippy Mat said...

Great adventure, here you come. The house looks great and a fresh start is always a good start.
Good Luck
:-)

Syd said...

I like the new house. It will be an adventure. Enjoy it and say a few words to tell the old house goodbye.

Cheryl said...

A white picket fence..wonderful! Wishing you the best in your new home.

Cricket said...

Well, congratulations and best wishes to you and James in your new pad. Personally, I loathe moving, but adventure is good. So is stripping down to bare essentials, which you can do anytime, not just when you're moving, I suppose.

This is the first year in the last 10 I did not have a summer yard sale. Get that stuff out of here.

Makes the house seem bigger. The cash doesn't hurt either ;-)

secret agent woman said...

What a cute house. When my kids have flown the nest, I'd like to down-size.

Fancy said...

I like it. What a lovely new house of fun and happiness!

Enjoy!!

MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings said...

Oh my, good luck to both of you. My wife's parents are moving in a week from their home of 40 years. It's a big step, and an adventure. A stressful adventure.

Happy Frog and I said...

Best of luck with your house move, I hope it all goes smoothly. Thank you for kind comments over on Eddie's blog, very much appreciated. :-)

Good luck to you. It looks like a nice house. I hope you have many happy year in it.

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Yard sale is not a culture here :( I wish to experience one.

Juli said...

What a darling house. Good luck with your move.

The Absence of Alternatives said...

After reading your blog for a while, i kind of believe that wherever YOU are, there is home for your children. :-) Congratulations on the new house!
