My "finished" wall

Life without the internet has taken its toll on me. Actually, I’m kind of enjoying the freedom from it, but I’m sad not to cut up on facebook and take expert care of my blog. (Who am I kidding? I was only blogging once a week! 🙂 But, here I am for an update.
We have been in our new house for a little over a month now. Things are unpacked and in place for the most part. Our carport is loaded down with stuff though. I still need to go through it all. We had a giant yard sale and got rid of a lot of our “junk.” It’s nice to have that out of the way. I am going to blog about each room of my house as I get it finished. But there just isn’t too much of it that is truly “finished.” But I will post one picture! This is my piano wall in the living room. That wall is “finished.” (Except for crown molding and new baskets for all my music, and baseboards… see nothing is ever “finished.”) I guess I am “satisfied” with this wall at this point. 🙂
Actually, I think it’s gorgeous. I love to turn the lamps on and just look at it. 🙂

Jackson helping Daddy “mow.” 🙂 He LOVES to help Daddy!

(Dear grandparents… the blades aren’t on)
We’re making a cute little garden spot in our backyard. We’re condensing some of our multiple flowers and shrubs into this one little section. We put our hammock, and Jamin used the timbers from our 50 flower beds to make a small split rail fence. We also transplanted some Rose of Sharon bushes to make a hedge for privacy from our neighbors. 🙂 It’s going to be so cute!

A recent family visit!! 🙂

And then, there are boys….

And that’s life in May! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! Please let me know you were here!
