Thank you for all your supportive comments yesterday. Closing went well, although after an hour and a half with masks on in a conference room, I was so anxious to get outside and over to my new house. I had the car already loaded with things to bring over and as I pulled in I had to pinch myself that this is really happening. I did a couple of trips over bringing breakables. I decided since I will be back and forth supervising work on the house, it would be easier to throw things in my car than have to carefully pack everything.
I finally got back here late in the afternoon and had a favorite meal of sushi and Champagne to celebrate. This morning, I meet the painters and plumber and roofer at the house and it all begins.
I can't wait to try out the Samplize paint samples on the walls. I will take pictures and let you know how they work out.
And some miscellaneous updates, some might turn into posts soon.
I just ordered a Simplisafe home security system after being with ADT in Virginia for years. I will let you know how I like it. Have any of you installed it?
My realtor gave me a lovely housewarming gift including all the fixings for mojitos. They might be on the agenda for later today at the new house.
I found someone on Etsy who handcrafts these personalized hand fans in Mexico with your monogram, logo, whatever you like. I think I will order some.

I have wanted a reclaimed lobster rope front doormat and I went down the rabbit hole starting in Maine and Massachusetts and ended up with someone who weaves them by hand in my backyard. She is making a custom one for me.

And finally today, I want to buy a cordless stick vacuum. Recommendations? I had wanted a robot vacuum, but I think with all my low furniture and table skirts and such it will be an issue. I love this Dyson in fuchsia just because of the color. LOL! I seriously want this vacuum.
