It's A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood...

Would you like to be my neighbour?

Is that a tease or what! I wonder how many neighbours I would have if you 'could' come over. LOL! I see that I haven't scared anyone away with my twisted sense of humour so either you guys are brave or you're just as crazy as I am ;o)

Yesterday I had to travel to the next town over to change our insurances, vehicle registration and my driver's licence. The insurances were done without a hitch but I sat at the DMV for an hour just so that she could tell me that I had to have DH there with me to change things over >:o(

What is it with the DMV anyway???? Why do they get such a bad rap? Aren't all their agents this friendly? ;o)

Not was all lost though because I found a cute little bookstore and a framing shop that carries 'some' stitching supplies :o) I also did some furniture shopping but that news will all be revealed in another post...

That sucks about the auto deal.
But exciting that you found a bookstore and some potential stitching supplies!

I would love to go for a visit...what a beautiful view to gaze on every day! and listening to the water....ahhh...

hehe

Sharon said...

Oh I want to be your neighbor!! What fun that would be :)
Glad your trip to MV was not a total loss at least you found a couple nice shops. XOXOX

Annie said...

I have a feeling DMV's are the same the world over.

But that sure is a beautiful view. And nice that you found some good shops too.

Chiloe said...

I would love to visit you !! Am I invited? I don't take a lot of room: I only one husband and three kids !!! lol So ? Up to the challenge ? lol

They are afraid you are going to take over all DH possessions? lol It was the same in the US though ...

Nancy said...

You KNOW I'd be there in a heartbeat!!

And you're such a tease ... furniture shopping??

Irene said...

Okay, Tiger and I are on our way :)I would love to wake up to that view daily.

Lili said...

Popping in to say Hi and found out that Pickles had been a little uncomfortable. I'm glad he's doing OK now. He's such a lucky rabbit...
Nice start on the Ink circles. I was wondering about CC's silk threads, now I itch to try them...
I'd soooo love to be your neighbour. Apart from the wonderful sight.
Many many hugs to you. It feels good to read your blog and see that you're happier now that your DH and you can be together again.

I want to be your neighbor.
Nice shops are always fun to find.

LOL the DMV is always a joy!

I went last month to renew my driver's license. Everything was still the same...address, height and such. My weight (however) was 10 years out of date. I filled out the form to correct it. A few days later I was looking at my new license. Yup, the weight is still incorrect. And I was trying to be honest!

It's good you've found a bookstore and a framing shop - you can buy your stash there.

CathE said...

I'd love to be your neighbour, you've got a marvelous spot there. Although, I guess if we all rushed over it wouldn't be quite the same place would it?

Karen said...

we can be there soon lol, DH will just need a job

Lori-Ann said...

ROFLMBO THAT is a funny picture!!

Sure I'll come for a visit... pick me up? LOL ;o) hehehe

Rachel S said...

The MVA is the biggest reason that I haven't switched over my car yet to the new address. I have no clue why they are so stringent here, I guess they figure that Maryland is such a desirable state to live in with our traffic, our nutcakes weather, and our high income and sales tax, that bunches of people are illegally trying to get licenses here. LOL.

Tammy said...

I'd be your neighbor in a heartbeat. Just let me know when that water gets warm enough to get in :0)

Lori-Ann said...

not sure you got my e-mail explaining retreat.

I'm not going to the April BYC retreat... I'm going to my own stitchy retreat at the end of May by the beach :oD (it will still be good and yes most of the Floss Fairies will be there too.)

Brigitte said...

I guess I wouldn't be the only one who'd move into your neighbourhood, would I? The only view that could beat yours would be high snowcovered mountains for me.
Haha, that sentence on the advertisement for MVD is funny "You're always first in line". BTW, our MVD is quite the same, seems to be worldwide, lol.

WendyCarole said...

John and I will come can we bring the cat? LOL

I think being able to look out and see that would be awesome. Sorry your trip to the DMV was so frustrating. Hopefully when you go back you can get in and out quickly (wouldn't that be a wonderful surprise). Love your new Ink Circles start, it will be beautiful.

I think that it would be fun to be your neighbor!

The DMV is always a lot of fun here. On the bright side, we can spare ourselves a trip and do some things through the mail. The funniest thing is that you don't have to renew your license in person if you haven't had any marks on your record during the previous four years. That results in them sending you a sticker to put on the back and everyone who asks for ID telling you your license is expired. So much for efficiency :)

Glad you're getting things taken care of getting settled in your new town. Finding a bookstore is definitely a good thing!! Is there a nice library nearby?
