A New Nest
Thank You Jesus! When our family decided to move here we assumed that our home in Ca. would sell. It didn't and when we moved we ended up renting a house to live in. Well, I'm here to say that as of yesterday our daughter and her hubby are new owners of a home out in the country. It is the perfect house for them~5 bedrooms and 3 baths and 2.5 acres. With their move comes our move; you see we own the house they have been in for the year and a half since we moved here. It is a long complicated story but due to tax laws we couldn't move into the house initially. The picture above is our new nest, photo taken in the winter with hubby and daughter plowing the driveway. So today we begin cleaning and painting their new home so that in the next several weeks they can move. Once they are in their new home, hubby and I can begin painting and cleaning and moving things across the street. Yes, you got it, the house is directly across the street from us which will make our move a bit easier. I don't anticipate being in the house before August 1st but who knows. I've been dying to paint walls a color other than white for the last year and now that I can I'm leaning towards beige, coco brown and maybe a blue. Not too wild, mind you, but enough color to make the house feel warm and inviting. I had planned on planting trees and flowers right away but that may have to wait until I get the inside comfortable. In fact, we found a wonderful tree while in the Sierra's called "Gold Chain"; it looks like Wisteria but bright yellow and does well in snow country. Even though it isn't snowing here right now like it was in the photo, today we had thunder and lots of hail. Alright already; it's summer. Have a blessed day!!!!!
