Day to Day Adventures

Glimpses of the New House


We have been adjusting to our new home.   No time for much extra besides school, meals, memorizing for Bible Quizzing and taking care of family.  I’ve been gone LOTS of weekends lately so that hasn’t given us any extra down time.  Last week we were home 4 whole days!  Only our regular Tuesday errand day was spent in town.  It was awesome to have a calm normal week.  I’m so thankful for our new place and the time we get to spend here.  God has really blessed us with a special place that brings peace to my soul.


A new season has snuck up on me while I’m still trying to hold on to summer.   We finally got our pool put to bed for the winter this weekend.  Next year we will definitely know more about what we are supposed to do.

One project I’ve completed in stolen minutes & hours is to paint the kitchen.  I have a hard time in the winter with clouds and no sunshine.  So the prospect of living with this dark red color(while beautiful) was giving me the willies.  (Please ignore all dogs & teenagers and focus on the red.  Really the teens & dogs are just accessories in the picture.)


So I primed it and painted it a lovely blue.  The color of the sky.  The color of a summer day.  My favorite color. I can do this.


So there are still boxes around but mostly we’ve unpacked the most needed stuff and we are working on the odds and ends that do not have homes.

Here are some pictures stolen from Elizabeth’s Facebook page and they show some of the outside views that we get to enjoy.  .


Falls glorious colors take my breath away


And here are a few of my own.


(Again ignore the dog)


I hope that as life slows down I can get back to scrapbooking, blogging, sharing recipes, projects and crafts.  Be back soon . . . .
