One More Moving Day

001We spent the day today once again moving furniture. We think, for pretty much the last time. You may recall that back in July (a couple months ago already!), we had movers bring the bedroom set and the office furniture to Harry’s son Andrew. 004At that time we also had the movers bring the hutch out of the living room out to the garage. Today finally, was the day when we took the dining room set and a dresser to Harry’s daughter Gretchen. Since it was a little more manageable, we rented a trailer and moved it ourselves. It was a beautiful, crisp fall day.




The trip was uneventful, although the trailer’s brakes didn’t seem to be very effective, so Harry had to rely quite a bit on the truck’s exhaust brakes. We were very glad when we finally landed.




Thank goodness Gretchen lives on the first floor, but it was still a bit tiring to carry these heavy pieces of furniture from the trailer into the apartment. We were all glad when everything was in, and the furniture looks great in its new home!


This is the last furniture we expect to be moving – the rest is disposable, and we plan to either sell it, or donate it to charity. Whichever way it goes, we plan to have someone else carrying it out of the house. Smile

All too soon it was time to head back home, and so we said our goodbyes until next time.



We noticed on the way home that the days are already getting shorter. Although we arrived home a little before 7 pm, the sun was already going down.












Good night all!


  1. Ahhh, didn't this day feel good to you? Beautiful weather and you made someone truly happy. Great shots of the sunset.

  2. House is getting empty! I'm sure Gretchen appreciates the things also.

  3. you sure had a lovely day suitable for a 'furniture delivery'!!!

  4. I'm with you on the moving - hate it! We had our fill of that with the girls when they were going to university - it seems we were moving them in and out for 6 straight years.

  5. Another thing checked off the list ~ I bet your glad you got it done!!!
    Have fun & Travel safe
