Well, I had planned on this being another wordless Wednesday, but I think I owe you a few words since I haven’t had the chance to write much about food lately.
I mentioned a few weeks ago that we recently purchased our very first home, but haven’t said much about it since. In fact, I haven’t said much about anything lately! That’s because the majority of our time the last few weeks has been split between Lowe’s, Home Depot, and the new house.
We’ve ripped out flooring and baseboards, patched drywall in several places, cut out and replaced some subfloor, painted the entire inside of the house, and dealt with a surprise termite infestation that was somehow missed by the termite inspection during escrow. It’s been a busy few weeks and we haven’t even begun to pack, though our moving date is only a few days away.
I know all the hard work will be worth it and we will eventually have a house that feels like home. But at the moment it’s hard to see past all the work we still have ahead of us. The yard at our new house is currently a mess. There is no landscaping and at the moment it’s filled with a giant pile of debris that seems to get larger each day. And though there are many reasons I’m ready to move out of the house we are currently renting, I am sad to leave our nice big, green backyard with the large shade tree on one side and fruit trees on the other.
And I think Smack is going to miss it, too!
But I have no problem trading a green backyard for a home to call our own, especially in an area where water is as precious as gold.
Our new yard will be a new kind of green.
You won’t be hearing much from me during the move but I’m looking forward to soon sharing things from a kitchen that will finally be my own! Unfortunately we don’t have any money to spend on the kitchen, but I still plan on customizing it a bit with the help of my very handy husband and a couple cans of paint. And don’t worry, there will be photos!
Wish us luck!
