Hello blog friendies! I'm still unpacking like a wild woman and I'm almost done! I've thrown a few Christmas things around but not much. We will probably put the tree up today. I don't know if it will be decorated but at least it will be up! I bought my first Santa mug and these dotty Gurley candles at my antique mall the other day. I also bought 2 Shiny Brites and our "kitten' already broke one! She's not used to being inside100% of the time so she keeps getting into trouble!
I thought I'd show you how the dinning room will be arranged. I put my rocking chair on the other side of the hutch and it's so cozy! I love my little cottage! I'm still deciding what will go on the walls. There's hardly a hole in any of this nicely painted sheet rock so I want to be sure! I keep unpacking all my treasures and just placing them here and in the kitchen until they are all gathered and ready to be displayed properly (whatever that means!)
And here's some pics of my nature park/walking trail. This is what I see when I reach the end of my short little street! Paradise Creek is just beyond the sign and I saw an Otter there right before we moved here! I've looked for it again but he has either moved on or it's hiding from me! I so hope it has a mate and that I can see baby otters in the spring! This will all be so lovely come Springtime!
No, it's not like walking all over the farm but it's so much better than walking around a crowded neighborhood! The Lord knew just what I needed! Many people walk, run and bike here but on this day, I only passed one man and his dog.
The pic below is when I'm walking back. One of those little houses in the distance is mine. ☺ Since the sun was out, I walked back and forth across the fields and soaked it in!
All I have to do to be *ready* for Christmas is buy candy for the grand children's stockings- oh and FIND their stockings! I wish I would have marked which Christmas box they're in but when I packed them away LAST Christmas, I didn't know I would be moving!!
Oh and on the friendly neighbor front- someone secretly plowed our drive way and side walk yesterday morning! There are so many wonderful people in our world! Look for them and *BE* them and you'll not be afraid. ♥
