Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Jason's Move.....................

My son Jason has moved to a new condo. It seemed to happen rather quickly. It has been a long time since we moved but it always seemed such a lengthy process. I suppose it was for him too but looking from a distance it seemed that he was concidering it and then he was moving. In any case we went down last weekend to help with the heavy stuff. He has spent time back and forth packing and moving bit by bit. Now he has to get the old place cleaned up, painted and ready to either sell or get renters in. I think it is a great investment opportunity as he already has his mortgage.
We took Bodi with us because we were unsure of her staying here at home without us. She has a growth on her leg and we were worried about her. Gabby stayed at the house to handle everyone and the garden. We went to the old place first and Gerry helped move the bigger stuff while I moved the smaller stuff.

Tristen came too and was very good. Gerry and Jason moved everything Friday night. Saturday we started with the set up. Here is Tristen sleeping he had no problem.

So the outside of the house (condo)

The road it is on.Between the houses on the other side is a pond and seats so you can walk around there.

A two car garage. They keep up the outside maintenance of lawns and hedges so that's less for him to do.
The back view. There is a horse barn and a field back there beyond the pines.

And a neighbour

The entrance. It is so bright and cheery, he was able to put his plant there. This thing grew from a pit when he was very young and I gave it to him when he got his first apartment. Its still thriving.

The entrance leads to the living room, but on the right would be the laundry room and back door that goes into the garage.Then the basement stairs.

On the right is the 2nd bedroom that he will use as a computer room. The guest bath is also there but not in the bedroom. Right now in this picture he has yet to sort and set up

The guest bath before and after. Gerry was able to install all the curtain rods and towel bars etc

You cant really see the subtle colours of sage and grey, we found some hand towels that were navy blue and with the white towels looks nice

I put his cat quilt over the 1/2 wall that goes down stairs. The basement is unfinished at this point but has large windows and will some day be a lovely addition.

The kitchen is nice, the cupboards and appliances modern. He has been busy gathering new bits and pieces for that.He had yet to put stuff away.

Then the dining room leads off of the kitchen and living room.

It has a fireplace

He is using existing furniture.It was coming together even though we had a matress on the floor still.

Cat alley behind the sofa

The dining area leads to the back deck, that is nice and spacious

Setting up, best we could

That was not finished when we left he was still unpacking stuff and setting up

He says Cole likes the seat in the walk in shower

Well I think thats it for now. It will be interesting to see what he does with it as time goes on. There is a lot of decorating potential with the high shelves and places to put collections.
Cole finally came upstairs to see us, he and his brothers Dexter and Tinsel were hanging out in the basement. I didn't blame them.

I am very proud that Jason is so self sufficient and can make his own way. He did most of the move with no help from anyone. We were glad to go down to help finish up. He has a good life there, I may wish he was closer to home but know he is well able to take care of himself.
