Thanks to everyone's input and ideas, the move to our retirement home in Carlisle, PA went rather smoothly. We have three bedrooms, a large living room and huge eat in kitchen. My favorite is the bonus mancave with its separate storage attic.
We love to stroll the two acres and watch the sun set behind the nearby mountains. This place is truly a slice of Heaven.
My quilting space is in the smallest bedroom, 11x13, which is not yet set up as I'm still unpacking boxes and using this room as a 'staging area'. We've been here only five days, but progress is being made.
My DH spends most of his time completing tasks and checking things off his 'to do' list while I continue the unpacking and interior organizing.
All in all, I feel we have made great progress in a short time and look forward to creating lasting friendships with neighbors who have already been most welcoming. One has introduced us to 'beet eggs' - delicious!
Carlisle, PA......a lovely place to be!
