Following their flight from Oregon,Mom and Teresa have landed at my house in Ventura for a brief spell while prepping their new home. They are in major nesting mode. We have been going non-stop in an effort to get the mobile home in tip-top shape and comfortable for Mom.

Pete Hall removed all the unwanted shrubbery and rocks, trimmed the fruit trees and got the outside ready for Mom to plant with whatever flowers she chooses. On the inside,Randy has been hard at work and the old kitchen has been ripped out and new lightening, appliances and cabinets will soon be installed. Shades of blue with white trim will freshen all the walls. Mom and Teresa are collaborating on the fluffing-up and decorating and the result is sure to be beautiful. The choices they are making are so nice. Mom is tickled pink and can hardly wait to get settled. I am so pleased to see her walk with a spring in her step. She says she is more active now than she was 20 years ago.

Today they chose new seating for the living-room and den. Teresa is going to bring some of her furniture from Florida and the house will become a home. A cute little nest worthy of it’s inhabitants.
