"Home is the nicest word there is." - Laura Ingalls Wilder

Well, we are finally here in sunny (and rainy) Florida. We have been here for about 72 hours, and in that time we have managed to drive all over town and beyond in order to pick up things that we need for the condo. Our big purchase today was a sleeper-sofa and love seat. Unfortunately we will have to wait several weeks for delivery. We really wanted to get something that will be comfortable for guests to sleep on since we have only one bedroom. We got a LazyBoy with an inflatable mattress, which we tried out and found to be just wonderful (actually, much more comfortable than the bed we have here). The pair are a kind of coral color - remember, I said no boring colors! In the meantime, we do have a few chairs that we can sit on till they arrive.

Other things that need to be completed are being scheduled - not a lot, but they need to be done. We have been unpacking boxes and bags, and until we have shelves to set things upon, and racks to hang things on, our condo continues to look like a disaster. We know that things will come together, but I admit that we are both a bit impatient. However - we continue to be very grateful that this is something that we are able to do at all!

One thing that did get done today was the hanging of the mirror I made. I had originally intended to hang it in the half bath, although I knew it might be a bit big - and it is. So, we have hung it in the main living space, and I do love it there. Of course, it's the only thing on our walls though!

I promise to keep you updated as we hopefully move from disaster area to a somewhat livable area soon! 

Once again - Happy New Year!
