Well, I haven't been able to get to my blog lately. Have you noticed? I've been busy unpacking/repacking things since even half our stuff can't fit in this little house. We had to buy a pantry for food storage, a behind the toilet stand and towel holder set for the bathroom since there was only one little cabinet and a dresser for the closet to store towels and other things. Since it's still a little cluttered, I thought I would just give you a tiny look-see into what I've been up to with our little place. Don't know if I'll finish this week. We are hoping to take a trip to OR to see Danielle and other family members for about a week, so I'll have to finish part 2 of this blog in a couple of weeks if that's the case. But I am having fun with this and actually anxious to look for a job. We still haven't found a church, but we have visited a few and might narrow it down in the next few weeks. We are both anxious to get involved somewhere, but still not sure what we want to do.
Okay, so here is a little sneak peek at what's been done so far:
This is our walk-in closet. It's nice and big, so we thought, since we had no closets or cupboards to put towels and sheets in, how about a long dresser (then we could actually use it as a dresser if and when we moved to another place).So, it's a little crowded, but it works great and we still have room for all our clothes and even my jewelry box and a few other little extras. Pretty nice for us.
Now for the kitchen. This little nook is where a refrigerator was going to go. Dan found one and for some reason, the one he finally found, didn't actually fit (believed the gal who sold it to us, eyed it, and thought it looked right). It was like an 1/8 of an inch or smaller too tall, even with the casters off. We thought we could put a pantry there, but really wanted a refrigerator there and a pantry somewhere else. So we found this fridge at the Salvation Army and we were able to take our other fridge to them (not a trade, but at least we were able to get rid of it, and for a good cause anyway). If there are any Admin Staff seeing this, notice the towel on the magnetic rack...so fun to have something new in our new house. Thanks. Oh, and even though you can't see it, the white towel next to my gift has "Grace Church" embroidered on it. One of those old towels that was going to be taken away - glad I grabbed it. Even have some engraved Grace Church utensils. So Grace will always be a part of me. :)
Well, that's a start. I'll finish uncluttering and get some more pictures taken and posted. It's been fun, but I still think of all my friends in SLO. It's been nice communicating with you on a semi-regular basis. Love and miss you all. But know that this is where God has planted us and we will bloom here.
