* NOSTALGIC SUNDAY *

It's Time for Another Nostalgic Sunday


It's been a LONG time since I've posted a Nostalgic Sunday. There's no particular reason, really....I've just been so busy......

Carrying boxes from one room to another
Unpacking & putting things away
Writing
Doing some laundry
Walking Vern
Writing
Eating
Walking Vern
Sleeping
Writing

The Ronald and I worked in the living room a lot today and it really is beginning to look like home! (Our son, Mark, came over and helped a lot, too!)

What about this post makes it a "Nostalgic Sunday" post?....

Well..since we don't have TV yet, I've been watching some Andy Griffith Show DVDs.

I've been feeling very nostalgic because I've been going through old pictures to include in my memoir.

And....below is a picture of the wall plaque I mentioned on April 13th.




I wanted y'all to see that I did cross out "Begins" and wrote "Continues!" ...and that makes me feel nostalgic.

I promise I'll post pictures when boxes aren't overtaking rooms!

    1. Thank you so much, Ms EC! You are always so generous in your compliments, sometimes very poetic (as in this comment!) and sometimes just plain hilarious! You always make my day....in a good way!...not a Dirty Harry way :D

  5. Good to see that you are gradually settling into your new home, Becky. I love how you have put Home is Where Your Life Continues! I wish you and hubby (and Vern of course) many happy years there together.

  6. It sounds like things are progressing nicely for you in your new home. Moving to a new location is always such a big undertaking. Watching Andy Griffith sounds like a good way to relax! :)

    1. Daisy, HI! Another lovely "face" to see! Gosh, I miss all of my bloggy friends. I don't know when or if I'll ever be back to my previous "schedule"....but that could be a good thing, really for me....time-wise. I'm going to make the effort, though!

  8. My husband is a Andy Griffith Show addict. I swear the man knows every bit of trivia about that show, can quote lines and identify an episode within the first 30 seconds of the show. Makes me laugh.

    Glad you are feeling at home.

    1. Oh Julie! I LOVE your husband!! Thank you for commenting and telling me that! I'm the same way well, at least with the older, B&W episodes with Barney. I never liked it after he left :(

      Delete
    2. I'd be happy to introduce you both, pull up the series on Netflix and even make you both popcorn. Meanwhile, my daughter and I will be watching Grays Anatomy. I'm much less moral in my watching habits. And he feels the same way, by the way. He only watches the episodes of Barn and Ang. ;)

    3. Ah, definitely a man after my own heart! Now...if you just didn't live so far away!

    4. P.S. Tell your husband I said "Hey!" and that I made a "citizen's arrrrest!" yesterday! LOL

  9. I would think moving would make you nostalgic anyway ... as you see old things, decide to keep or toss, etc. And your car situation on the previous post --that totally looks like something I would do and reminds me in just a small way of the pickle I had when something major was caught in the draw under the oven. That was a desperate situation bordering on destruction, but somehow we managed to wrangle it all free, and only one bruised hand to show for it. :-) Glad you are moved and getting organized.

    1. Hi Podso! Thank you for stopping and commenting, too! And you are right about looking at old things and trying to decide what to keep. We moved in such a hurry that we brought stuff we knew we'd get rid of when we had the time to really go through them....which of course slows down the process...but I'm not killing myself, wanting a perfect place! :)
      And add to all this....I'm writing, too. I love it, though. Wouldn't have it any other way!

  10. It must feel good to settle in and make your new home feel, well, homey!

  12. Well, Becky, I got so busy that I hadn't had time for a "catching up" visit until now. Apparently, you've been busy, too! :-) LOVE that you changed that sign--now, that's pure Becky!

  13. I certainly understand about being busy and not getting around to blogs, Ms. Cathy C! Glad you like the way I changed the plaque....and I love the way you worded it: "now, that's pure Becky!" Thanks! :)

  14. Can't wait to see the pictures of your new pad, Becky.
