Today was a good day
Today we had lunch in a beautiful old antique building that has been renovated and turned into a fantastic restaurant with delicious food and it was all a treat from our realtor !
We bought a house today..
It went easily and in an ordinary way as these things do ... in the US .
In Argentina, it would have been totally different and in its way, more charming, more confusing, a little crazy and a bit more fun.
But we were content with the way today went.
We went back to the house and met the painter and got ideas for French doors and gardens and decks and I just wandered the gardens and listened to the amazing sound of sooo many birds.
I saw more than a few Red Winged Blackbirds.
We will be visited by Hummingbirds soon, or so I have been told.
I am getting hummingbird feeders .. they will all be welcome in my garden.
I have big ideas for the pool and the pool house and all that jazz.
I have big ideas for the area where a hot tub stands but not for long ..
I even have big ideas for small charming stone walls ...
I am in the world of stone walls now... I gotta have one too !
If anyone has ideas regarding gardens, birds, and living in the country, feel free to offer them here .. or send notes.
Yes, Today was a good day.
Our old home in Buenos Aires ..
