Random Photo Friday

Hello, my friends! We are slowly returning to our new normal, and are very happy here in our new home. I hope your week was happy and healthy...we are passing around an annoying cold...but are otherwise doing well. Here is a quick peek at our first week in our new home.

Steve saw this little guy the other morning while we were having our coffee and tea.
And watching Match Game '74.

Obligatory selfie because I was dressed in real clothes and was wearing makeup...

For a special Thank You dinner for our friends and family who helped us soooo much during the move.
Thank you, Family!

The puppies adjusted wonderfully.
They are so trusting.
As long as they are with us, they feel safe and happy.

School planning began again!
We took some time off during the move...or as Marian loving referred to it...the Exodus.
I have a brand new place to plan.
And I love it.

Ok. I am ending with this!
Remember I told you about the delicious Mocha Frappe I had on the cruise?
Well, the nice woman who made them told me how!
And wouldn't you know it...Amazon sells the mix!
It is amazing.
And really...not that bad for you.
Just add ice and skim milk.
OK. Whipped cream too.
But...it is worth every calorie.
Trust me.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends.
Marian is coming to visit, and we are excited!
Next week I will return to regular blogging.


  1. Glad you are all getting settled in. Looking forward to seeing more of your new place and following along on the adventure.

  2. Mmmm, bet the frappe is wonderful, and so glad you found something to make it at home. Sounds like once you got everything and everybody in the new house, life continues on as normal. Have a cozy weekend, and hope everyone gets over the old cold.

  3. Oh my goodness, I need that frappe in my life!!!
    I love your new place to plan.
    Happy Weekend!!

  4. Wow! What a moving crew, Billie! So blessed to have so many helping hands, my goodness! And I am happy that you are settling in now. It very well can be a traumatic experience, especially for those of us who have been in our homes for some time.

  5. You are so beautiful, Billie Jo!! I was also trying to sneak peeks at the background....love the stairs, cabinets, flooring, countertops, etc. Can't wait until we get an online tour!! (that's a hint, now you gotta come thru :))
