Settling in to our new home

It has been over a month since I last posted on my blog. I really haven't fallen off the face of the planet, but there are times in the last several weeks that I felt that perhaps I had. We are slowly but surely settling in to our new home--a few issues still to work out. The master bath toilet still doesn't work right, (despite its being "fixed"), we're having a bug problem that is taking our most concentrated efforts to overcome, and Steph has taken on the job of cleaning all the storm windows, which is a large undertaking. Here are a few pictures of how the house is shaping up. We're pretty pleased.

Dining and living areas.

  1. I think it is lovely and I can't wait to come visit - that is, of course, if I'm invited. :)

  2. YAY front porches! They rock, and your house is ADORABLE.

  3. Debi: Of course you're invited! Don't you know that you ALWAYS have a standing invitation?

    Rebecca: Yeah, front porches really do rock, especially on a breezy Sunday morning with a cup of coffee and a good book.

  4. Beautiful house that you are making a home. Hope to see it and you the next time I am in stillwater. Two of our best friends Todd and Deborah Baker Green live there and we come to visit them ever so often. Hope all is well with you. The Rawls Family had a lovely time in Salzburg this summer. I thought of you when we bought all those Mozart Balls and brought them home. . . dem some good eatin.
