1 Year Down

It's so hard for us to believe that today marks 1 year since we pulled into the Florida driveway and said "we're home."

While it's been a tough year for us, we have turned this house into a HOME. Home is where the heart is, and our hearts are truly here to stay.

Lily and Muffin are doing well (except for Lily's skin condition.) They love this house too. Lot's of outdoor time in the sunshine, running around inside, chasing each other all over the place and they love laying in the big window where they can see all the critters outside.

Rolf and I have been busy. New washer & dryer, new roof, new A/C, new locks on the doors, (next week will be new garage door opener bcuz it died yesterday,) new plantings, peeling wallpaper, painting inside and now working on painting the outside too. While one is never happy with the expense, that's what happens with an older home.

I am now working part time taking care of a neighbor here. I go to work in the golf cart and dress in shorts. The perfect job right now for me. While the caregiving aspect brings back many memories, I am happy to be helping someone in need. Oh, and this lady has a D-O-G! His name is Joey and he's a beautiful black lab. He's a mushy love bug. Some day I'll introduce him to Lily and Muffin.

We're sorry we're not around much but all the above has taken up so much time. But in the end, all this time spent has once again turned G-Ma & G-Pa Bobs house into a HOME. It's a home where we are all loved.



  1. You didn't miss much by being in Florida this summer since we've had the hottest summer on record here. I'm sure you've heard about it from your brother. It sounds like you have settled in well.

  2. What a difference a year can make! Glad you are at home!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. I know it has been a challenging year, but are so glad you have made it home. To a peaceful year of enjoying your home.

  4. I pray that all the bad luck you guys have had over the past couple of years will finally turn around and become good luck because no one deserves peace and happiness more than you and Rolf and the girls. Sending you lots of hugs and prayers.

  5. Does take awhile...and make a home!

  6. It all sounds exciting and beautiful. Things are falling into place. They always do.

  7. So glad things are settling in for you!

  8. I'm so happy for you. It seems that caregiving is a gift that you have, and I'm glad that someone else can benefit from it. I love that sunset. If you're happy at the end of a hard-working day, you're in the right place!

  9. All the hard work makes it a home!
    Mr BAiley, Hazel & Mabel
