Empty streets, deer and finally home again

We made it! Finally we are home again. The weather was bright when we left Bangor early in the morning. It was Easter Sunday, all streets emptied of the usual busy traffic.
Machias, ME on Easter Sunday
Except in one curve - there was a family of 5 trying to cross the road. Deer.
Luckily we spotted them (and they us) in time.
Deer crossing!
By noon we arrived at home. Yeehaa!
Electricity came on, heat came on. 
Checked and found no mice droppings around! Great!
All seemed to be well, except when hubby turned on the water. 
Some pipes in the basement didn't cooperate this winter. Three connections came apart. 
It must have frozen in the basement. (For the first time in the three years we own this place!)
He fixed it because-of-Easter-Sunday-all-shops-are-closed with duct-tape.
Now we had hot water in the kitchen and cold water in the bathroom. 
All is warmed up and cosy. We won't complain. :))
Today we also got our phone/internet connected as planned. Great!
Now my dear husband is out and about getting the right stuff to fix it. 
He will probably be posting about it later in the evening.

And I will start up and get all things organized and cleaned up in the kitchen!

See 'ya later!


  1. Welcome home! Now relax and take it easy for a while.

  2. Nice you are back home safe and sound.
    A minor repair and all will be good.
    Then the spring cleanup begins, enjoy!

  3. It must be nice to be home again. I love your house - it looks like a farm house or a ranch house. Have a nice summer!

  4. Oh, I love your house. It reminds me of a house my mom lived in after I left home. And it's my husbands favorite color for a home. Glad you arrived home safe and sound.


I love getting a comment from you now and then. Be patient, they will appear, I just have to see first if they are OK to publish. No anonymous any more. I am getting too much spam.
