    New house getting organzed

    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!

    Oh, that sounds lovely. I hope that when we transition to our retirement home (likely 3-5 years from now) that it will be as pleasant as yours. As for setting up your sewing room, you're saving the best for last. Haha!

    Congrats on your new home. Sounds absolutely lovely. How ironic I have a batch of beet eggs in my fridge. It's actually the second batch. Great on salads and make great tasting deviled eggs also.

    It sounds like the most daunting part of the move is behind you...I hope you will get years of enjoyment in your new sewing space once you get it all organized.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Easy process. I use 3 cans of pickled beets per dozen eggs. Boil the eggs then peel. Put aside. Drain the juice of the canned pickled beets into a sauce pan. I also use plain canned beets to which I add equal parts sugar and apple cider vinegar to the juice of the beets. Bring the beet juice to a boil then add the vinegar and sugar (it mixes and dissolves easier. You can heat the beets in your microwave. After heating the beets put a layer of beets in a large bowl (with a cover). Put your peeled eggs on top then cover with the remaining beets. Pour your hot juice on top of the beets and eggs. Let sit in fridge for at least 24 hours if you can wait that long. If you use a large glass container temper the glass by running hot water along the outside of the glass. I use to use a large "sun tea" jar. now I Use a large Tupper/Rubbermaid bowl. I don't add any water to the liquid mixture. You'd be surprised how much juice is in mix. You can also add sugar or vinegar to taste, depending on the sweetness or savoryness of flavor you want Some call them "sweet and sour" beet eggs.

    Funny story about 'pickeled eggs". We had moved to Charlottesville, VA from PA where my husband attended UVA. I packed picked eggs in the children's lunches and the other (VA native) children had not seen them before. Owing to the Southern drawl, the others were calling them 'pink eggs' while my three heard 'pig eggs". To this date, we call them pig eggs and remember the good times.

    Thank you for the recipe!! The pickled eggs were a welcome gift from a neighbor. With your recipe, I hope to return the favor to her.
    I have been to the car shows here before, the fair ground is only four miles down the road from here. As for quilt shops, I'm in 'hog heaven'!! I can't wait to start exploring.
    Thank you, everyone for all your good wishes. I'm presently relaxed outside under the front portico, it's 7 a.m. and I'm listening to distant turkeys, roosters and enjoying the quiet country I now find myself enveloped by. As I said, a slice of Heaven.
