Thank you and God Bless You!
Thank you and God Bless You!
Until tomorrow…. I’m off to make those calls and hit the grocery store. God Bless you!
I’ll be back tomorrow to share some Whispering Wednesday secrets… I hope to see you here.
Well, I’m off to enjoy playing in the dirt and drinking coffee! I’ll see you again soon! Have a wonderful TGIF!
Today is another sunny day here in the Pacific Northwest so I took advantage of the beautiful lighting and took a picture out the stair landing window. We have a gorgeous maple tree outside that will bring many seasons of joy and color!
Saturday will be our 2nd week in our new home and it’s such a joy to wake up in such a big house and have so much room to wiggle about in. It’s very strange to be in such a vast space after living the “apartment” life for the past 10 years. I can you that I absolutely LOVE it though!
It’s Whispering Wednesday once again and time to share a secret or two about myself…so here goes!
While unpacking some of my art drawers I found one of my favorite little “toys” to share with you today for 2sdays Toys. I was a huge Brady Bunch fan growing up, I wanted to be Marsha and I was in love with Peter. This little book I received from one of the people who know me the best knew I was get a kick out of it. So without further ado, here’s another tiny book from my mini library.
♥ A Whole New World ♥
Saturday I vacuumed the hole house and the carpet cleans up very nicely. I had my hubs drag the massively heavy Kirby up the stairs for me and got the whole job done in about 35 minutes. I went over it very throughly as it was the first time we’ve vacuumed since moving in. It’ll probably be a once a week job. Thankfully we have tiles in the entry and down the short hall so the dirt doesn’t hit the living room… and we don’t have the HUGE PINE tree shedding needles all over Timbuktu in this driveway as we did in the last place. Thank you God!
We made several trips out a mile down the road to Home Depot and Walmart and got some of the things we needed. I grabbed a bird feeder and a shepherds hook for the back yard but so far the birds haven’t found it. We spent all of the housewarming money that my parents gifted us and had a blast doing it. I wanted a curved shower curtain in the bathroom but after getting it home and attempting to put it up…it consumes to much of the small room so it’s going back and something else will get crossed off our “needs” list instead.
I unpacked what I think is the last box for my art studio. I still have a bookcase in the garage that will need to come up the stairs and be put into place but my knees have swollen to twice their size so I’m taking things very slow and seeing my doctor this afternoon. I’m in quite a bit of pain so I’m hoping he has a fast fix for me. I’m hoping like crazy this isn’t early onset arthritis. Not in my knees!!! My hands hurt like mad too but I think that might be carpel tunnel and I can do exercises for that. Oh well… enough complaining for now. Hopefully the Dr will tell me to stay off my feet for a few days and I can take a break from unpacking and do a much needed bit of creating. =) I’ll letcha know!
Thanks to Michael for this awesome and inspiring garden bike! I couldn’t believe my eyes when he and Ben took it from the back of the truck on Sunday. I filled it the very next day with loads of flowers! It’s earned a prestigeous place of sitting under the round window in our entry way and warms me with smiles each time I look at it. It’s truly “me.” He really nailed it with this “planter.”
The house is coming together nicely and things are slowly finding their permanent home. My goal is to empty the boxes to the best of my ability and find the best homes for each item and move what doesn’t work. The garage is a disaster area filled with leftover things I haven’t found a home for yet… and am considering donating. There is also a plethora of crumpled up newspaper and bails of boxes! There will plenty of cleaning to be done once this process begins to wind down. I figure by the end of May I’ll be able to break down as many boxes as possible and have about half a dozen filled with items to donate! It’s amazing how much “stuff” one can accumulate!
My studio is coming along awesomely and I’ll be able to hang some art on the walls fairly soon. I’ll take some snapshots today after my camera battery has recharge…(along with my energy level!)
We will be heading out to a new grocery store today so our first neighborhood shopping trip with be the adventure of the day! I’ll have LOTS more to share with you tomorrow… Tomorrow we also get our washer/dryer set delivered. (USED!) Since they are behind closed doors they don’t have too look as pretty as our new fridge!
More to come soon…I promise… and I framed out an illustration I made last year in a frame that was gifted to me last year and I’m eager to share that with you all as well!
