Sleep and hydrangeas

I had a nightmare Sunday night. I don't know exactly what it was about. I know I ended up out of bed and in the doorway of my bedroom closet. I was screaming. I remember that. The end result is that I have to add to the moving chores Replace Mini-Blinds in Bedroom. I must have hooked my sleeve or something on the mini-blinds on the way to the closet. It's a tiny bedroom and there's not much of a walkway between the bed and the windows. Or perhaps I grabbed them. Anyway, the one is ruined and I'll have to buy two because I'll never find one new mini-blind to match the undamaged one (it's a natural law).

Sound, refreshing sleep. I dimly remember what that was. 

On a happier note, the snowball hydrangeas have come back or their first full year.

Wish I had a good camera. This would have been the best shot ever. However, you can still tell Buddha's the cutest dog ever.

And, it's going to happen

The underwriter approved the last "proofs." There is a "soft" credit pull three days before closing, but the finance guy expects no difficulties. So, yes, a homeowner in Oakdale I shall be. Closing is July 31 at 8 a.m. and the movers come at 2. 

Every once in a while I smile and say to the dog "We are moving to our own house in Oakdale," and he wags his tail happily. Okay, I know he's probably just responding to my tone of voice and hoping it leads to food. But I like to tell him things.

The packing...is not going well. Must make strides this weekend, whatever the knees say. I suspect it will be a lot easier to keep motivated, now that I know what lies at the end of all the effort.

I don't think it's really registered yet.

Homemade vegetable soup

I have been feeling under the weather, so I made vegetable soup.
