New House Vibes




Good morning! How are you doing? We've been in the new house for about a week and the kitchen is almost done. The cabinets and walls are painted and my husband finished installing the new floor yesterday. All that's left is that pesky lazy Susan that will not reassembly (grr) and baseboards and transitions. Oh and we bought a new light and a new faucet. All of this was a face lift for the time being until we decide what we really want. I have to admit it was really nice using the double oven, I've never had one before but it came in handy! 

The kitchen is smaller than my old one but I'm completely okay with that. There is less to clean. Next up will be the family room where the paneling will be painted. We were going to paint the shelving but have decided to put that decision on hold for now.

The animals are doing okay. Frodo is extra needy and Holly is hiding more so than usual. However, they know where their food is and every day it gets better and better. 


I had an arthritis flare up on Sunday, oops. I guess my theory of 'I'm in remission' is out the window. Let's just say I am REALLY good at managing my RA under normal circumstances. I am now resting for long periods of time frequently during each day and have knocked the flare way back down to minimal, phew! I feel like that was a close call.


The new neighbors are nice and the neighborhood is quiet so far. Frodo loves to bark when he hears a bark which is funny. I've seen some deer but luckily there are no bears here. My sister and brother in law gave us a bird feeder as a house warming present and I love to watch the birds.

  5. Your house is very charming. The new floors look very nice as do the cabinets in the kitchen. Your yard is so green and lush. Is that a little foot bridge I see back in there? Do you have a creek running behind your property?

  6. Oh your new house looks so lovely! I hope you will be happy there. I think western PA is wonderful (though I am biased since I am from near there). Take care of yourself so you can enjoy it when things are just ready to be enjoyed.

  18. Your new kitchen looks nice. I love the gray flooring and the white cupboards. I predict you will have many lovely mornings and other times as well, in your kitchen. I'm sorry about the RA flare. That doesn't sound like any fun. Rest when you need to - eventually the house will be unpacked and become home.
