I know I've been absent lately; I even received an email asking if I'm OK. Actually, here's the problem: I'm having so much fun in my new home, I have trouble motivating myself to get on the Internet. I was online about twenty minutes this morning, and that was all until a half-hour ago. I'm not getting around to all the journals and blogs I usually read. It isn't that I'm so busy, I'm just loving the settled feeling I have here, and suddenly all that time spent online seems like a waste when I could be enjoying my house.
This is the completed front porch. There will eventually be a sidewalk from the porch to the driveway.
To the right, you have the deck-box in which we'll keep boots, shoes, and all sorts of winter weather gear so it isn't strung all around inside the house. The box can be used as a seat, too.
On the left is a glider chair Rena gave me (spoils of the divorce war... ha!). I've been sitting there with my first cup of coffee in the morning (which I used to drink at the computer). I love my porch!
The man who built it is going to start our enclosed back porch and deck this coming Monday. And Cliff is ready to have the Mennonite builders come out and give an estimate on a metal, two-car garage. Things are happening fast!
