We had a lot to be thankful for this year - a new granddaughter, a brother that survived, a new home. Mostly, we were thankful for everyone that could be with us this year, and we were missing the ones that weren't.
We're (Ha!) getting started on landscaping a little earlier than we anticipated, due to the massive amount of dirt that keeps coming into the house. We're fortunate enough to have some really great landscape architect friends just down the road that squeezed us into the fall schedule. They're amazing!
Well, we're in! And after some false starts with Charter, we're up and running. The house is great, and is continuing to improve. The inside railings are going in this week and the painters are here touching up things. We should see the outside railings next week sometime.
We've both had a odd mix of emotions with moving into the dream house. It went by so quickly, and here we are. I think it's always harder to get what you want than to dream about something. We're still adjusting to the drive - Arno being two miles from work, me being 15 miles from the gym! The fall colors are absolutely stunning, and to have the preserve outside the back door is definitely my dream come true.
Landscaping is next - the sand pit has to go.
Quiet time in the sun.... How'd the party end up in the bedroom!? Wait a minute - who's in my chair! I'm home!
