Anyway, this is our new house. For all intents and purposes we are the first family to live here. I have never had a brand new house to be responsible for. I can't wait to make it ours. I want to paint the kitchen and living room....we will see. A pale yellow for the living room and a very light grey for the kitchen. It has been years since I painted a dwelling we were living in. Technically is has less living space than the apartment in Kansas, but the kitchen is massive, and for some reason our master bathroom in enormous. The bedrooms are small, but there are more closets than rooms in this house. Do most houses have as many closets as mine does? I will have to count them. We have a really big garage and so much yard space. Such a nice change from not having any yard at all! Oh and something else the kids are wild about, the refrigerator has a water and ice dispenser. They LOVE it!
Here is a shot of the house head on. I think some big bushy ferns for the front porch will be just the thing. I would also like to put in an herb garden.
OK, now it is time for truth....does anyone else experience a sort of psychosis while they are moving? I swear I have turned into some mean stranger. I want my other happy Tia back. I guess when I have my nest all settled I will be much much better. The kids did fabulous on the trip and the cats were brilliant travelers. They spent the days in their little carriers and we would hear a meow from time to time, but other than that they were great. Now, traveling with cats does kinda narrow the sorts of overnight stays you can anticipate. But you can't have it all can you?
So I am going to leave you with one more shot of some West Texas countryside and then I am going to go out on my back porch and enjoy the evening while the heat is down a bit.
Have a lovely evening!
