Kathy, that IS exciting! I love that view! The house seems to have some good curb appeal and good space inside. Have you picked out your sewing room yet?

I will be setting that up in the garage! .....believe it or not!!!!
None of the bedrooms were big enough to be a combination bed/sewing room.
But the large front room and kitchen/dining room more than make up for it.
The whole house is so light and airy - Can you tell I'm excited?!!!!

A few more pics of the inside - Vaulted ceiling - kitchen island
There are 3 big bay windows 1) front room 2) dining area 3) master bedroom (not mine this time)
Oh, and there is our dog Chaos - those sliding doors have the look of many small windows, but
those window frames are between 2 solid pieces of glass!!!

Actually, the garage is a great idea. Just think of all that space! Quilters heaven on earth. The home is beautiful and I love the windows.

Moving is a lot of hard work and stress, but it will payoff in the end! Looks like a great house!

So exciting; moving into a new home. Take your time and enjoy the process! Cleaning out the old one isn't as much fun I know, but it is a good way to get rid of some stuff that you don't need or want anymore. Looks like a great home!

Oh those mountains! What I wouldn't give to have a view like that! I told MIL I wanted to move to Banff (Alberta) just so I could wake up to a view like that every day, but then she reminded me that I would need to rob a bank in order to pay my mortgage there... lol So needless to say, I am VERY jealous!

Girl! You live in one of the most GORGEOUS provinces in our country!! Mountains are nice too but living on the sea! Could do without those wicked winters though huh? lol.

Kathy, looks like you are really enjoying the new place! I LOVE those vaulted ceilings!! I can't imagine quilting in my garage...but then it can get to minus 40 here in the winter! That's a tad chilly for my taste! I'm assuming you don't have that in your neck o'the woods?

Wendy, there is just no other room in the house - summer is coming and I have an electric free standing fireplace we will keep in the garage. I may get a smaller table and put it in my room next winter.

So which rooms look out onto the view? That is just to die for! Life does have its ups and downs - hope your ups are getting uppier.

So which rooms look out onto the view? That is just to die for! Life does have its ups and downs - hope your ups are getting uppier.

The view is what we see when we look out the front door - also when we are in the garage. On one side of the garage is a sitting area with an old corner sofa and a rug - behind that is the deep freeze and storage. The other side is mine for sewing - still needs a bit of organizing. Hope to get that done soon and maybe even share pics!!!!
The last 4-5 months have been a whirl-wind, with moving - extended vacation - adjusting my attitude....and now the kids have switched rooms around and are starting school this week!!!
Just today I went through my mail and took care of some things - my Dads widow got re-married in March and I haven't talked to her since I can't remember when! She should dis-own me, I really need to write to her!
Sierra goes for 7th grade orientation tomorrow and they all go on Wednesday - even Morgan will be gone all day to first grade!
We are not going to know how to act! Oh yes I will, I will be getting things done!! Woo Hoo!

Sorry about the small novel!
