My View of the Mountains!

I've spent every evening on the balcony with my camera!

The sunsets have been AMAZING
and I think I've taken about 100 photos! lol

We are all moved in and now I am trying to fine tune thingsAlign Centerand get organized!

I like order... I NEED order but I like all my pretty things, too!
So it's a challenge and I'm sure glad that 'hurrying hubby'
got my computer up and running! I can use a BREAK!

Moving men sure are nice when you're on the second floor!
They did a GREAT job, too!

I can't wait to get caught up with everyone!
Hope you've all enjoyed these last days of July!

If you read down this far...
please recommend a good book
that I can check out from the library.
We are SO close to the library and the park...
I'm going to really enjoy that!

You are in a beautiful location! The views are breathtaking. I would love being that close to the library. I like books by Debbie MaComber. Thanks for visiting and for the birthday wishes. Twyla

Glad you are all moved in. Your sunset pictures are wonderful. You probably have not had time to visit my blog, but we sold our home and closed on it. We are leasing back from the new owners and have until Nov 1 to move. So I am house hunting.

I would love to meet for lunch someday once you get settled. Let me know if you have some free time.

Mister Pip by LLoyd Jones - charming and poignant.
Random Acts of Heroic Love - Danny Scheinmann
The Ladies Detective series by Alexander McCall Smith
and yes The Time Traveller's Wife.
Love the mountain view. Hope you get settled into your new nest as soon as possible.

How did I miss that you were moving???? Are you still in Asheville? You have a wonderful view of sunsets for sure. I just finished Karen White's book The Lost Hours and really enjoyed it. I now want to read more of her books. Happy settling!

Vee said...

Oh wow! You do have an amazing view! What kind of books do you enjoy? My grandmother is enjoying a mystery series by Laura Childs that begins with "Death by Darjeeling." This was recommended by Brenda at Coffee Tea Books and Me: She even has a nice booklist on her sidebar with recommendations from her readers.

Welcome to your new home! There is so much good and bad that goes with moving...I hope yours is much more good than bad. The view of the sunset and mountains is breathtaking. As for books...I'm reading a biography about Charles Lindbergh (by Scott Berg) I wouldn't normally recommend a book like this but we seem to share the same taste in books. It's good and more of a story than a biography.
Glad you're back!

I think I would find it hard to get a lot done with that gorgeous view. Sounds like you have a perfect location.

Hi Diane,

How wonderful to be settled in. Your view is amazing and I would be taking pictures too. Can't wait for you to show us all the decorating you have been doing in your new home.
Take care and enjoy your day,

wow, i didn't even know you were moving! that view is lovely.

how about checking out a cookbook from the library? i like blue eggs and yellow tomatoes. or if you like reading kids' books (b/c i sure do) and want something a little creepy (but funny) now about the lemony snicket books?

M.Kate said...

Hi Diane,

What a beautiful sunset and the view is so lovely. Will be enjoyable looking out there.
Glad you are all moved in and such a big job getting organized.

Good luck

Lovely sunsets!
So glad you are moved in and all is going well. Being close to the library is nice. Will you walk or ride your bike? I bet the little ones would love a ride in the basket!
