Still unpacking

Crazy I pad. I can post here, but looked at the Preview, and then couldn't "publish". On the desk top I can't post. just read. We are in the condo. Of course DH had to fix up his office first, and order a new desk. New pantry "installed" where 1/2 bath used to be by kitchen. What a crazy design! Three and 1/2 baths in a condo, but no pantry. Lots of wasted space in this place, and obviously no woman helped in the design. Our house is on the market. It is so strange walking into an empty house that used to be your home. At least all our stuff is gone, that was really strange, seeing some of my posessions there that didn't sell in the estate sale. Just pennies on the dollar in case anyone is interested. The quilt/sewing room is the last to be done--or unpacked. Guess I'm suffering for analysis freezing. Trying to over-analyize where I should put things. A large window that looks over the ocean with a north facing view-north light- but will the fabric fade if I put it on bookcases like I had before? Small closet with crazy shelves. At least the machine is up, and the thread sorted, many spools thrown out. The nylon and rayon and invisable threads chucked, can't see well enough to use the "invisable" thread! LOL Today I mostly plan to stay here, do laundry and tackle the sewing/quilting room. Got up early tried to use the gym downstairs, but couldn't get the door open. So went for a 30 min. walk. At least it was something. Fwwling better now, new meds are kicking in after about 2 months! Trying to get over the moving anxiety! Sleep is still a problem, but lots of people 65 & older seem to have sleep problems, so guess I'll just roll with it, and nap when I can. Found a lifetime of sewing machine needles! LOL, every kind in the world, but mostly the Schmetz 60/10 I think-- can't really read the box. ! Weather good here, overcast, and not too hot. DH exausted, working working at house, church stuff. He needs a real day off-- Laundry calling my name. Take care and keep posting. Sara in Fla.

checking in

Spring has arrived, no doubt about it.  Tree pollen season is here and everyone is suffering.  This must be how the term "spring fever" was coined!  Like last year, our air-conditioning did not work when we started it up.   Last year, it was out of Freon.   Same thing, this year, so this time we had the guy find the leak and repair it.  Oh. My. Goodness.   THAT was an expensive bill.  Yikes x 10!  On the heels of having all the mulch put down in our yard, my budget is blown.

I've been sewing for the DGD and now working on a small project for our son & DDIL.   I will finish that today if I'll just get off the computer and git 'er done.  

If any of you BBers have old afghans laying about (or is that "lying about"?),   here is a Etsy page of an enterprising person who gives new life to the current up-cycling (or recycling) trend:
ROFLOL!    I hope those shorts are lined....   ;-)

SARA in FL - I hope the move is finished, along with the unpacking (IMHO the worst part-lol).

Hugs to everyone!
