We've Moved Back Up North .....December 20, 2018

2018 Photo Project

We got an early start last week when
the movers finished filling up the
moving van Wednesday afternoon.
So we took that Golden opportunity
and put Lucy in our pre-packed car
and drove up to Medford Oregon and stayed
 the night in a "Cat Friendly" motel.

That meant we had a head start as we drove
up to Vancouver early Thursday morning.
Instead of 6 non-stop hours for Lucy
to be in the car, she only had to endure 4 1/2 hours
until we got to the Cat Chalet where she stayed
for a few days until the house was slightly less
chaotic and not quite so full of paper and boxes.

Lucy is pretty much settled even though
we will be unpacking for at least another week.
Have a great Feline Friday!
Thanks Sandee!


  1. Oh I'm so happy for all of you. You'll get all settled and then you can relax. A new home for the upcoming new year.

    Miss Lucy looks right at home indeed. You know how much I love that kitty.

    I'm so happy the code worked. You're a very loyal participant in my memes.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday, Miss Lucy. Love and hugs all around. ♥

  2. Glad Lucy has the boxes to sit upon. Hope the move goes well for you. Sending lots of purrs etc.

  3. Glad you made it safely and I'm sure Lucy will enjoy her new home!

  4. Moving right before Christmas - wow!
    Merry Christmas, Kathe.

  5. Hooray for a new house just in time for the New Year! It’s great to hear that Lucy is doing well.

  6. Good for you for putting Lucy front and center. Pets are often overlooked in the crush of moving and they have no idea what is going on.

  7. Lucy does look settled. She has a box and her scratcher, everything is good.

  8. so happy for you! Wishing you much happiness in your new home. What a great time of year for a new beginning! I also LOVE how you planned to considerately and carefully for Lucy! Have a wonderful holiday!

  9. Have a fabulous day and weekend. Big hug to you and Russell and tons of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥

  10. I need to come around here more often. Moved to Vancouver, Washington? I did my research and saw the new place. You are downsizing which is good at our ages. I just moved also, but only a couple miles from the old homestead. I still have the snow, but a much smaller place to maintain.

    Do you know the blogger Brig? She just moved to Vancouver. You can find her blog on my sidebar near yours.

  11. So glad you made it to your new home!
