We've moved!!!!

Sorry it's been so long since my last post - BUT I have a very good excuse...we moved into our first home in the village of Meridian!!!

I was being pretty tight lipped about the whole process - I'm not really superstitious, but I wasn't going to take any chances. We are settling in nicely and the sight of cardboard box mountains are slowly disappearing.

It is a 3 bedroom cape cod, 2 full baths, 2 stall garage, finished basement with .85 acres and we absolutely love it! It's 62 years old, the original owners lived here for 60 years, raised their family and moved into a townhouse, the second owner only lived here for 1 1/2 years and moved for business reasons and now us to raise our family here. O - no surprises coming - the family we are planning. We need to get use to having a space of our own first before adding any piddle paddle of little feet. The only little feet in the house at this moment are those of the kitties - which are loving the all of the windows to birdwatch from.

One of their favorite places to birdwatch from and ours is our enclosed front porch. I have already enjoyed a coffee and reading the paper here. I only showed you the little cute side - the rest is a mess still at the moment, but I'm looking forward to getting a nice comfy set of chairs for relaxing and reading on.

And yes!!! I do have a craft room / office. We took the larger of the two upstairs bedrooms and are turning it into our craft and office space. Currently this is what one of the corners look like. As you can see that cats are supervising my mess. I will hopefully sooner than later be back at crafting in this area. I had to laugh at our friends who helped us move that dubbed every one of my craft boxes as crap boxes - ummm...yeah I cleaned stuff out, but I still had loads of stuff - I'm sure all of you can relate. They were even more enthused when we said - "oh, that goes up stairs"...yeah I'll be making them all something nice down the road, with my "crap" supplies.

Well, I better get back at it. More updates to come!
