As the sun started rising this morning, I climbed out of bed, threw on my robe and walked through my new home....... as I padded barefoot through the hallway to the kitchen, I looked around at the boxes mixed with furniture and all our things and realized that no matter where we go, it's not the house that makes it a home.
It's US, it's the family and it's the personal things that we bring with, so I'm happy, I'm content and I'm ready to start this new chapter of our lives.
The picture above is of the sunset last night, gorgeous beautiful vivid colors splayed across the sky, it literally took my breath away and made me smile, big big smile.
So are you ready to see some of my house? It's slowly getting unpacked and set in order, but like I said......s l o w l y. Curt and I are still really sore from the move, I tell you every step I take my calves are killing me, so we're taking it slow, doing a little at a time.
Come on in and take a look around and please be careful, I don't want anyone tripping on a box or slipping on a stray toy on the floor.....yes those pesky little toys that seem to fall out of boxes and flow into the hallway, kitchen and living room.....even the bathroom.
Of course the first place I'll take you to is the kitchen, it just wouldn't be me if I didn't right? If you're good and behave I may even give you some Gingersnap cookies that I'm baking today.
Here's another view of my kitchen....
Looking from the kitchen into the laundry room.
In my laundry room there's a pantry, or maybe it's not but I just turned it into one, who knows? Here I have my extra appliances and most of my cooking books.....
Eating area, you'll notice a spiderman mask sitting on the bench. What?!?!? Doesn't spiderman eat? *shrug*
Living room. I just have to shake my head here, there's so many boxes and odd stuff laying around. There's a drill and a couple toys on the couch, there's a video game drawer set just sitting there and yet more boxes. Oy.....someone save me from this unpacking LOL
Here's my bedroom, the only one that is pretty much done and that's because the kids are still getting used to the new house so we've been letting them climb in bed with us at night.
And this is the honeysuckle right outside my kitchen window, I can NOT wait until the hummingbirds come visiting.
In between all this unpacking, one thing I've really been enjoying is my clothesline. Goodness gracious, there really is nothing like the smell of air dried clothes. I won't be hanging my underwear out there though LOL
I mean, there's no fence in the backyard and I don't think the neighbors need to see my unmentionables LOL
But comforters, tablecloths, towels etc...pretty much whatever I can get away with, is going out there.
I'm in love with a clothesline!
And now I have to head out, back to the other house to finish cleaning all the appliances and get it ready for inspection in the morning.
We're also having our old refrigerator switched with this one, the one in this house is so tiny I can barely fit anything in there.
Have a great day everyone, I'll be back in the morning with my Slow Cooking Thursday.
