Almost all boxes are empty and those that are waiting to be unpacked ( as soon as storage space magically appears) will be quickly disposed of.
Every day is sunny and beautiful, the mornings and nights are getting chilly.
I sometimes have trouble falling asleep .. mind = gerbil in cage... but soon we should be able to relax and not have lists of Places to Go and Things To Do.
As of last night, the front of the house is no longer the same color.
I am thrilled. Absolutely thrilled.
We went from that New England barn red ( which looks fabulous on all barns and some old homes) but not on this sort of house .... to an olive/grey .. no trim.
It is even better than I hoped for. More like the 50's Modern that I never really was attracted to, but now that I have one, it might as well look great.
|This is not our house|
Every day we do something with the garden and it is showing.
That is one of the things about gardening, your results are pretty instant and then more come later.
I used to like the wild and woodsy look but here, with so much woods and overly wild ...
I am leaning towards manicured ... cut edges on lawns around shrubs and neat flower beds and there is this pile of stones that has a snake living in it that I would like to relocate .
I mean really, there is little beauty or sense in a big pile of white stones just sitting in a large lawn by a mailbox, unless the snake is trained to retrieve the mail, which so far, he has failed to do.
This weekend is a big one.
It will be our first Company for the Weekend.
And who better than a tiny little man who needs to see his grandparents ?
And his mama who might enjoy having someone else walk around with him, talk to him, sing to him and perhaps get him to smile.
And the guys can talk Man Talk and let the wimmen bring them food and drink and my heart can just grow close to bursting with it all.
So for now, things are great, there are many errands to run ( which include drives to Massachusetts and hither and yon ) and plans to be made.
Life is good if you have plans.
You feel good making them, Looking Forward.
You feel excellent when you do what you planned, Accomplishment .
You keep busy ... Alive.
And we all like that Alive feeling.
À bientôt for now ~
