We also bought a new John Deere Gator while we were there. This one has a canopy roof and a lot more power than the other one. Ours is the one in the middle.
When we got home we had to endure the house inspection, appraisal, and radon inspection. We have to make some minor repairs, but the major problem was that our wooden window frames were getting soft in spots. We had already contracted to replace them.
Next was to find a place to live! We want to rent a house in Raleigh that will be closer to my husband's office, to our son's family in Cary, and to our mountain cabin. We have looked at a few places, fell in love with one, and have submitted our application for the lease. We should hear in the next couple of days.
Meanwhile, we babysat for our grandbaby Charlie the weekend of the twenty-sixth. She was an angel baby, sleeping all night and just being so cute.

Anyway, the baby seemed to enjoy sitting on her Daddy's quilt both inside
and outside, where she did a little "reading"
and experimented with the feel of playing in the grass, protected by her babysitting dogs Kasey and Roo.
