Starting Our New Life

Blowing off the dust, It has been  8 months since I have blogged.
We have been really busy, We sold our life time home in Florida ,We sold in one day,,and We were on the road to North Carolina in total of 12 days,Talk about a whirl wind wow.

We are staying with our son and his wife and 2 year old, until we can find a home of our own

But the homes up here litterly sell with in a couple hours.
We have been here 3 weeks already and are still looking for our home..

I know God will come through for us with just the right place..

But until then we have been exploring our new home area.
There is much to learn.My sweet hubby is born and raised in Tampa Florida, So this is a huge transformation for him.

Clemmons NC
A stone’s throw from Winston-Salem and a gentle drive from the Yadkin Valley Wine Country. A Village filled with rich history: old and new churches, fine and friendly restaurants, unique shopping, distinctive artists, and full-service medical care facilities.
The Village of Clemmons truly embraces modern amenities, mixed with the comforts of southern charm.

We are looking at living the country life ,yet have stores,Doctors etc around us and Clemmons offers this.

 Clemmons is steeped in rich history dating back to when the Village was first settled in 1802 by Peter Clemmons.  Originally called Clemmonsville, it quickly became a hub for agriculture and industry.  Stagecoach lines ran through Clemmons on a regular basis and electric power generation at the Idols Dam Power Station helped to propel the Village into the industrial age.

We haven't missed one day since being in NC of getting aout and going some where nope have not miss even one day TaDa!!

I am also making a journal of sorts..What I want to learn:
Beginners Gardening
