Oh it feels so so so so good to have internet back. Though, quite honestly I have to say that we did enjoy not having it for a week, we spent a lot of time swimming out back, grilling, watching movies and relaxing.
But now I have so many things to tell you and I don't even know where to start.
I guess it's best to begin in the beginning? And to tell you that God was really on our side during our move because we never would have made it home without Him. There were so many things going on against us and we just put it in the Lord's hand and as always He came through in a big way.
As everything in life,the rough patches always lead to a good place, and I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am to be where I am at this moment.
So quiet, so stress free, so relaxed and happy.
It's been a crazy busy week though and I wish I could tell you that my house is up and running, but alas it's not, there are still boxes laying around, things to be packed, things to get rid of etc. It's slow going and I think because I've been on the go for the past few weeks, I'm sore and I'm tired and I'm moving slower than usual.....but we'll get there.
Let me show you where we're at so far.....front yard
View from the living room window
Inside...here is the kitchen, I am loving the white cabinets they make everything so much brighter
Kitchen window sill
Dining area, still a lot of random things around but at least we have a table to eat at
One corner of the living room
Here's a better view of the whole living room, nowhere near done, there are still quite a few odds and ends laying around here and there
From the top of the stairs looking at the front door
Looking up from the front door
From the front door looking down to the lower level where my bedroom and bathroom are, the door to the right leads to the laundry room
I don't think I'll tire these views, there's nothing like drinking my morning coffee out here while listening to the birds singing
already made a friend, comes and says hi every morning. I knew it was building a nest, and low and behold, RIGHT next to the deck is a tree with a nest...
I took a peek this morning and saw one egg, took this photo, went inside to help one of the kids...
came back out, and there were two. I wonder if there's more now, I haven't checked in a few hours :)
It's been great having a deck to sit on and enjoy a snack while watching the kids play in the pool
I honestly don't know what the future holds, or where we'll be a year from today but for now, I'm going to enjoy every single second of this house, every second of being away from crazy city life, and really just settling into this country life which is something I've wanted for so long.
I thank you all for your patience with me during this move, I am so far behind on blog reading and haven't been able to come by and say hi to anyone, but you've continued coming by and leaving me such sweet comments. I do appreciate them :)
Now I'm off to catch up on my shows and check on dinner which is cooking away in the crockpot.
Hope you're all having a fantastic Monday....oh and I apologize for the lack of Happy Homemaker Monday this morning, I didn't have a way of getting one up and didn't get internet until much later in the morning. It will be back next week though :)
