Here's a picture of when we first started. I am standing in the foyer looking at the library into the dining room. The green color you see looks a lot better in the picture than it does in person. We have painted it the same gray color as we did in dining room.
We have been taking loads from Happy Trails and then unloading into the garage and then from there we bring things into the house. The garage now has enough room in it that we were able to put both of our cars in it. The other day I went for a ride in my car just to give it a run. It had been a couple of weeks since I drove it. So nice driving it around here with so much less traffic.
Though the house was clean looking on the surface there was still things that needed cleaning like windows and base boards. I'm also washing clothes, blankets, towels and curtains that have gotten a bit musty being packed away. I've lost count of the number of loads I've washed with still quite a few to go yet.
A big surprise to us was that the washer and dryer didn't convey so we had to go out and buy a washer. Didn't even buy a dryer because as most of you know I don't use a dryer so it gave me more room in the laundry room.
Ken has made me a temporary clothes line on the deck until he can put a proper clothes line out in the back yard. : ) Just a note that within a block of my house I've counted 7 clothes lines. Ah this is my kind of town. One thing that I DO NOT miss is living where there is a neighborhood association. I know most people like them but I don't like people telling me what I can't do. I guess we are the type of people who the neighborhood associations are trying to keep out. : )
We have also painted my office the same lavender color that I had at the townhouse and I feel right at home here.
Of course I've been walking each morning and have one basic route mapped out which is 6 miles. I'll be mapping out different routes as time goes by. There are no paths to walk but the roads are like wide paths and most times only a car or two passes by. Here are some of the roads I've been walking along.
Well I guess I've rambled on long enough for today. It's nice to be blogging again.
Enjoy your day.
happyone : )
Peace..... it's just a prayer away.
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything,
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4: 6-7
