They Came & They Delivered

And now, we need to unpack!

The movers arrived right on schedule and, with Kevin helping out, they managed to unload the truck and move all 200 of our boxes into the house in about 4 hours. We weren't sure if and/or how how the Government shut-down would affect us. Given how things have gone for us with this move, I kept waiting for the telephone call notifying us that our delivery would be delayed until the Government re-opened. Fortunately, that did not happen.
And, if I thought the house was unorganized before...
We had to empty the furniture and boxes out of the sun-room because Mimmo and Dan began work in there yesterday. We just shoved and piled all of that stuff in to the dining and living rooms and cleared little walking paths through the rooms. It will be a week or two before we can even begin to think about putting these rooms together. 

The family room.

Mimmo and Dan are still working in the entry area and, since there will be a lot of wood cutting and drywall sanding over the next few days (= a lot of dust), we will keep everything in boxes and undercover until that is finished. 

Even the pups were exhausted!
We are having somewhat of a heat wave here (85 degrees yesterday afternoon) but I guess Fall (and much cooler weather) will be here soon. I saw this pretty tree on my run yesterday morning and had to go back and take a photo. 
Have a great Friday!
