Looking Back

  Well, I'm sure your asking yourself what the heck I'm doing showing you a photo of the
kitchen from my last house, when I'm supposed
to be telling all about our Yukon move.
Please bear with me and I'll explain. My laptop
is in for repairs, so I now have to use hubbies photos (which are all old) for my post. And I
thought a cute kitchen is a little more eye
catching than a map of the Yukon. I'm sure
that doesn't make a bit of sense to anyone
but me! Remember I have the flu. So it's
probably effecting my reasoning.
Now, concerning our move. DH & I are moving
to the Yukon for a work opportunity. This will
be our fourth trip out. Our home is provided
with the job, so we only need to take ourselves
and whatever personal items we need.
You ask if I am excited. I am. But I won't lie,
it is always hard to move so far away from our
children and g'children. I plan this time to
take advantage of Skye so we can see each
other when we talk, at least.
Someone ask if I would still be blogging.
You bet your bottom dollar I'll still be blogging!
I'm going to need your company now, more than I have ever before. Although my work is with
the public, I'll be located far from any neighbors,
just as I am now.
I treasure the friendships that I have found
with my blogging friends and have no intention
of giving you up! No you're not getting rid of
me so easily! So although my post may vary a bit,
I'm still the same girl with all the same interest.
So I hope you'll travel right along with me all
the way to the Yukon.
I'm counting on you, my friends!


  1. Wow you will certainly miss your family, but it sure sounds like a fun adventure too!

  2. It sounds like a great adventure for you guys! I'm glad you're going to continue to blog. I'll be reading along. It is a cute kitchen that I'm enjoying looking at!

  3. how exciting , I just found you not long ago and I certainly have no intention of losing track of you now.I will love to follow along on your new life in the Yukon.Take care of your flu.
    What a lovely kitchen you had.

  4. Oh ick! The flu that is.
    Oh yea! That you are looking forward to moving. Actually, to be moving into a place where all you take is your personal items, sounds pretty nice.

    So how long will you be gone?
    Is it a permanent move?
    What about your home now, selling it?

    I'm sure all my questions aren't making you feel better.
    Stay in bed and get back soon.

  5. Oh I forgot to comment on your kitchen... love it! It has the same feel as mine.

    Get well, soon!

  6. Oh man~
    a move to the Yukon! How exciting. Sounds adventuresome.

    I can't wait to see all the posts you put up for us to read; with all the cool Yukon pictures.
    and you must show us the place where you stay.
    Not that pictures of your last house are bad...NO~ I loved that little tour of you last kitchen. Very cheerful~

    I envy you, your traveling job, ~Pat

  7. The move sounds exciting. I hope all goes well for you. I would definitely recommend using Skype. We use it to keep in touch with our son in Florida. I enjoyed seeing your last kitchen. Looks like a happy place. :)

  8. I have never been to the Yukon before so will be looking forward to some pics..hope you feel better soon

  9. The Yukon? For how long? Cute kitchen by the way... That is one good thing about cyber friends. We're tough to ditch.

  10. Oh Kim, you can count on me to be there for you. That is so far away from your family though. But, Skype is awesome and I know you'll get good use out of it. I look forward to seeing your move to your new home. Take care and get well soon. Hugs, Pamela

  11. I missed the last post so I just found out you are moving. Good luck and we will be waiting for updates and pics of the Yukon.

  12. Wow! Big changes! Haven't had a chance to visit much lately, but it sounds exciting and rewarding. Love your old kitchen - cute red table - and I look forward to coming along with you as you venture into the Yukon! The pictures look absolutely beautiful!

  16. Wow! The Yukon cool. :)

    I love your old kitchen. It is very country. I love the splashes of red color.

    Hope you have a safe trip.

    Take care, Janet W

  17. Oh how bitter sweet. I would also hate to leave my kids and grand kids. I'm sure you are so torn. Maybe your new adventure will open up options you never had before. Hope you kick the flu quickly and can see joy in your move:)

  18. Moving to Yukon, sounds like your moving right now. Are you going to be there for a short while? Life sounds extremely exciting for you and hubby right now. Be careful, safe and keep in touch.

  19. Good morning! WOW!! A move to the Yukon....soo exciting and adventurous! I am sure it is hard to leave family behind, but with today's technology it really isn't too bad. I am excited to go right along with you. Looking forward to the pics. Hope your feeling better soon! HUGS

  20. How exciting for you! I look forward to hearing about your journey!

  21. What kind of job takes you to the Yukon? Sounds like a great adventure. Mimi

  22. Cute kitchen love that wood counter! What a move good luck to you.

  23. It seems you are feeling better (aka the spunkiness is back). Glad you are looking forward to the move. Does this mean you will sell the cabin?

    Looking forward to sharing the journey with you.

  24. Wow, I don't stop by often enough! What a big move....will you be keeping your little cabin? I hope you and the hub approach this as an adventure and find much joy in it!!
    Skype is a wonderful thing, it will help a lot.

    Wishing you calm as you approach the move....


  25. Well, your old kitchen was just darling! I can see you puttering around in it.

    I know what a big job it is going to be to pick up and move. Are you selling the house you are in or keeping it/renting it out? We have moved a couple of times for jobs, too, so I understand the need to go. I'll be looking forward to some photos of the Yukon! xo Diana

  26. I am very glad to know that you are planning on blogging still. I do have one request, please post photos of the Yukon. Show the world what a beautiful country Canada is.
    Love and hugs, Cindy

  27. Hi Kimberly, wow, that really is a big move. Will you be keeping your home here? It would be nice to think that you would come back to us someday. Value Village will sure miss you, LOL I'm sure that you will make wherever you are a beautiful, comfy home for you and hubby. All the best Kimberly. Hugs, Chris

  28. The very best Kimberly,
    I am new here in blogger so I also am a follower of you.

    Skype is great to keep in contact only down fall is you cannot hug Grandkids. I live far from two of mine. So I sure miss them. Like your old pictures. Be waiting like the rest to follow you when your organized. I jst moved well 7 months ago . So the sorting has to be the worse as I love all my things but I had to down size from things. You take care of yourself. Breath deeply and I will keep you in prayer for you to have strength and health soon.
    Huggies from Canada.

  29. Wow! Sounds like you are going to have a great adventure!
    I'm so excited for you, and looking forward to reading all about it :)

    Hope you feel better soon!!

  30. What a fun journey. I hope ya have a blast and a half makin' your new Yukon house your home.

    Cute, cute kitchen sweetie. Your curtains remind me of a tablecloth my mom had back in the late fifties. Oh the memories!

    God bless ya and have yourself a splendid day!!! :o)

  31. Cute kitchen! Your upcoming move sounds exciting, I am looking forward to seeing the Yukon from your perspective!
