Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade - my 70th and taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

New Decade

 Today marks my 70th birthday!


My youngest sister sent this beautiful bouquet that arrived at our door before dinner. It's sitting on a table that once graced the living room in our house in Columbia. (We moved from there in 2003.) Our daughter had the table in her kitchen until they renovated.  She gave it back to us to use as a work table in the kitchen.  It had been taking up space in her attic.

Our great room extends beyond the kitchen.  The shade covering the slider doors on the left is down.  It requires two people to put it up and down.

We still have some boxes to unpack, stored presently in the guest room.  We need to be here awhile before we decide where the pictures go on the walls.

Wonderful to be here in a new home in New Hampshire. 

The new chapter continues to be written.

That’s a special birthday number! Happy birthday, Marcia! I was thinking about you and wondering if you were getting hit by the snow storm. Your new home looks beautiful with your things in it. You will be all cozy and normal by Christmas it looks like.

Happy Birthday to you, Marcia, and that's a good year which I well remember myself! Your home is looking very nice and how wonderful to be ll moved in before this snowstorm. We have enjoyed watching it all day from safely inside as well.
