A big ol’ Samuel Update

We are on a countdown clock until the end of this month. We are moving to Denver, Colorado. My house is almost done. They finally finished the kitchen and I’m very happy. It came out perfect! I love the backsplash, the appliances and everything else. I love it. I really do. The pantry is done too so I can have both the fridges/freezers, and panty fully stocked by the time we get there. That’s going to make it so much easier. I will be flying out there the weekend before our move to make sure everything is ready. Especially Sky’s nursery. The kids’ rooms are priority number 1. We have been packing things up slowly. The important things that I didn’t want my movers to pack. So my part on this end is almost done. Thank goodness. We will be going to my downtown condo for a few days before the move to get everything finished up. That’s when all 3 of my vehicles will get trucked out to Denver. That’s expensive but worth it. I have a 4 car garage waiting so I have an open space for whatever new toy we might need.

This house is going to be SOLD SOON. One of my friends is buying it. He and his wife have always loved it. They live a town away and we came to a fair price. Of course they are getting a family discount but this way I don’t even have to list it or do any work. They plan on moving in the week after I move out. They will get their own cleaning service in and have their own inspections done. If all of that passes, they are writing the check and off we go. Otherwise it’s going to the next family on the list that wants my house. I’m getting way more back than I paid for it and plus all of the renovations I’ve done over the years, I’m good with the price. All of that money is folding into the new house renovation costs and the rest goes into my savings. I upgraded all 3 vehicles so I don’t really have anymore big purchases this year.

Baby Sky….she’s beautiful. It’s so much easier caring for 1 baby and now that my kids are a little older they all 3 help me with her. This is a breeze. I would honestly have more kids but I know I can wrangle 4 by myself. I love kids. I just can’t do it all by myself. When school gets cracking it’s going to keep me very busy.

My cookbook is going well. I’m into the recipe testing phase. This thing has taken since January to get going. I didn’t realize a vegan cookbook would be so much work. I am learning how to do this and can probably pump out a new cookbook each year until I get tired of doing it. I love it though Lol I get to try out all kinds of new kitchen stuff. I’m experimenting with new foods. Right now I’m obsessed by black cherries. Such a great flavor. I really like them in just about anything pastry or dessert. I even tried a few chopped into a leaf salad, not bad.

My newborn is great, my kids are having a great summer. As long as the swimming pool at the new house is ready for them, they will adjust just fine. And then the week after we move, they start school orientation and get ready for class. Peace gets a half day at a different school since she’s not hearing impaired. Lucky for me it’s close by the house so I can drop her off first, then drop off the boys and hang out with Sky until around noon. That will be a blessing. Peaceypie is really look forward to play with someone other than her brothers. And I really should start working on her not being so bossy but how do you do that Lol She’s too cute!

Our summer is winding down. I am so excited to move and start a new chapter. My life is perfect. Things are going very, very well I’m happy to report. How is your summer going? I know I had all kinds of travel plans that we never got it. We will hit it next year. There are some places I want to explore but not yet. We need to wait until next summer when Sky is ready to boogie around the world with us.

Church was amazing this morning. A very good sermon and even better bake sale afterwards. They do offer a few vegan options so we try to scarf those up quick. We got banana bread and cupcakes this time. I left the other 9 things for others. This banana bread though…..mmmmmmmm.

Hope you have a great Sunday! Enjoy the rest of your summer guys. Love ya’ll!
