Oh my friends, I'm so excited. Guess what? We have our new house ready to move into. YAY!!
Yesterday afternoon we went to check out a house that was for rent. I honestly didn't think that I would be returning home an hour later, with keys in my hand.
But it was just one of those where you walk in, and it feels like home. That and the fact that the homes around here are going so fast right now, being PCS season and all.
It had everything we wanted, and more, and we decided to just lock it in and be done with it, instead of waiting to see another and risking losing this one. We ARE just 3 weeks away from the day we want to move out of this one.
The Lord as usual came through in a big way, providing us with a beautiful home, a quiet wonderful neighborhood and even a spot for me to garden in.
This area hasn't really been used at all, the previous tenants used to throw their compost in there, so with some cleaning up and tidying, I think I may just have a gorgeous veggie garden :)
Now THAT I'm so excited about....and I got my bigger kitchen with loads of storage, my dishwasher and my pantry. What more could I ask for?
I will be organizing that pantry with storage bins and mason jars etc. Can't wait to get in there.
But yes, what more could I ask for???? Oh, well, maybe a hot tub? Uh huh, I said it, a hot tub. Wow!
It's not running at the moment and if we want to get it running it will be at our own cost, but we would like to eventually get it working. Only problem is that we have no idea whatsoever how to even go about doing that. If you have one, or have any tips or advice, I would really appreciate it.
I'm already envisioning some beautiful fairy lights strung all around the fence, and some gorgeous greenery in there too.
And speaking of greenery, I am in love with the green walls in the living room and the stairway.
Oh but let me quickly show you the backyard, it's pretty big and has a nice deck which will be perfect for summer barbecues.
Of course the front of the house is beautiful too, I have rose bushes along the front walls and all around.
We're slowly getting everything moved in, which if you're a military family you understand that it's something we don't do at all. All our moves have always been very fast and done in the matter of a day or two.
It feels good to know that I can take my time and go at a slower pace. Last time we moved, my husband and I moved everything alone and it took us two full days and well into the night of moving and pushing and pulling and carrying. It almost killed us and I was sore for a week after.
Will be happy not to have to do that again.
But there you have it, I wanted to come in and share the news with you. As we continue with the move, I'll take you along with us, and then of course I will show you the house once everything is in. How exciting!!!
Hope you're are all having a wonderful Saturday and enjoying your long weekend. We are not doing anything in particular, just staying home and relaxing, but we may do a picnic at the lake on Monday, we'll see, nothing is decided yet.
Anyway, I'm going to watch a little TV and pray for this crazy wind to go away so that I may stop suffering with these wretched allergies.
