Duckin' around...

"Duckin' Around"
Ambler, PA

Can I tell you how excited I am?  For the FIRST time in over 30 years I am going to live NEAR a parent.  Close enough that it doesn't involve an overnight commitment or an all-day venture to visit.  Close enough that I can just pop in to say hi.  Close enough to drop my laundry off (kidding!). Yep, the Maternal Unit is moving.  Not just "moving", but moving to a retirement community that is literally within jogging distance of my home. And since I am NOT a jogger...it is CLOSE.  

Took Mom to check out her new digs this week.  And not only is it a VERY nice retirement community, but by the look of the water fountain at it's entrance...it's got some residents with a sense of humor too.  

Yep, it's going to be fun having Mom so close.  Not to mention, maybe I can save a few bucks on laundry detergent and fabric softener.

P.S.  I haven't been posting quite as frequently this summer as I usually do.  I've been enjoying my days, instead of documenting them.  I will get back to my normal schedule of posts after the laid back days of summer have passed.  In the meantime, I am going to aim for a few posts per week.  AND, I have a new photography link-up I'm rolling around in my brain.  Hoping to get it all nailed down within the next few weeks...so stay tuned!  Hope you all are enjoying your summer too!


  1. Quack! Enjoy having momma closer!!

  2. Sounds like a happy time to me... both summer and Mom being closer


  3. This is great! I'm glad you'll have the convenience of having her close. Looking forward to your linky!

  4. I'm trying to change the pace up a bit with summer...not as easy with a 9-5 life...but reading things like this inspires me to keep trying for that summer feel!

  5. How nice for both you and your mom to be so close. Can't wait to hear more about the link up-enjoy your summer days!

  6. I remember how excited I was when my parents moved to the city where I worked. It was wonderful - and sure beat the 4 1/2 hour trek over the mountain and through the woods. Enjoy your summer breather and I look forward to hearing more about this "link-up" thingie. Fun!

  7. My parents live a days drive away. How nice to finally have your mom close by. sweet
