Moving

Pearls for my friends... :)

Dear friends,

Lately I've been slow on visiting all your wonderful blogs and leaving my comments. No, I am not ignoring anyone. I love every blog I follow and many of fellow bloogers became my good friends.
Usually when you have a news, you share it with your friends. So, here it is: I got a job. I got a job!!! In Seattle... Hence, in a few days I am driving from Arkansas to Seattle.

End of the yard sale: only couch was left...
Those two on the couch are NOT for sale! :)
With all the exitment came an enormous load of work: going through a lot of stuff, packing, etc. I have been working for a week non stop to prepare for a moving sale we had today. Now, when all furniture is gone, blogging becomes a bit difficult. Please, bare with me and do stop by... I hope to post from time to time until I settle down and return to cooking and normal posting routine.

I miss you all...

See you,
Marina

    1. Thanks Lorraine! Packing is no fun, we knew we would be moving, so we didn't buy any big items, only what we need. Apparently we needed quite a bit. I need to learn more about Spartan's lifestyle... :)

    1. Thanks Della! I love Washington too, we lived there 10 years before my husband's job brought us to the South. We like it here too but we have another child up there, and teenager wants to go to school there. So we decided to go back. And I'll have more things to blog about! :)
