We Moved...

Well, sort of. We are mostly in our new house. All the big stuff was moved on Friday. There are still some odds and ends that need to travel up the road, and still lots to do at the house. We realized it would be easier to move in and finish it while living there. Too many nights have been spent working until after 11pm, then going back to the log cabin, cooking dinner and falling into bed exhausted. Now we can tackle the house in the evening and have dinner cooking while we work.

The living room is the only room in the house that isn't filled with boxes! Sophie cat is adjusting quite well to the move. I am sure she misses playing on the spiral staircase at the cabin, but this house has so many more rooms for her to explore and hide in. Centurylink really dropped the ball with our telephone and internet move. We kept internet only at the studio until our move is complete and for some reason that made the switch over very complicated. Are we the first people to ever move phone and internet to a new location and keep internet only at the old one for an additional 30 days? They acted like we were. I spent over four hours on the phone talking to different departments and waiting on hold. Today I finally spoke to a reasonable and polite woman at our local office. It took her only an hour to get a tech out to the house and hook us up. I finally feel like we are connected to the world again. How did we ever survive back in the day?
Today we are firing the kiln. Jeff got up early and lit the first burner. He came home and we switched places so he could do some plumbing work. It's a beautiful evening to sit on the porch and wait on the kiln to climb to 1650 degrees. At that point I will put her into reduction and Jeff should arrive to finish off the firing. I am still not sure when we had time to make the pots that are in this firing.
Perhaps it was the elves.

  2. Yay to Michele and Jeff in their new digs! And a kiln firing as well! Yay to kiln firing too! OK, the internet/phone thing sounds about par for the course. May you have successful pots and ease of continuing your spiffing up your new home!

  3. When we had Centurylink I was always careful to use small words and short sentences.. I never felt that my happiness was one of their goals.

  5. I can't wait for a moving in day, if only we could find that house out there! I would love a fixer upper challenge, fun watching you bring your house back to life. I know you must be sleeping really good at night :)

  6. The living room looks great. It seems like a smart idea to fully move into the new house.

    I hope the firing goes well.

  7. There are so many things to do when moving to a new home, but when everything is settled in place, it's worth every minute. From the decorations and dishes that are in place to the warm feelings in the air of knowing that memories will be made, a new home is a new beginning.
