*at home

Although very little of our house hold goods are here with us in the Florida house it is starting to feel like home. We all drove down on Tuesday of last week, it hardly seems like we have been here for only 7 short days. Eric flew back Friday of last week, so Henry and I have been working very hard. We have, (I use "we" loosely as far as the flooring is concerned): taken all the baseboards up in the dining room, kitchen, laundry room, living room, den and the bedrooms. Floors has been removed from: kitchen, living room, dining room, den, laundry room, and all three bedrooms.  I have painted kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms, and all the trim. Also, painted both bathrooms and the trim in those. Henry has been doing an awesome job the last day or so painting his room.  I have used almost 12 tubes of dap, dapping where needed ( I like dap!).  We have cleaned every window jam, every window, power washed screens, power washed the covered area by the pool, power washed the pool area.  We have worked a TON in the yard, sawing dead trees down, sawing large and small branches where needed.  Henry worked tirelessly one day on the roof cleaning all the gutters out which must have had years of decayed leaves in them.  Ok.. so you get the picture.. the list really does go on for a bit longer.. but I will spare you.

I am feeling quite at home here. I ordered these boots a month or so ago from American Eagle because they were 30% off with free shipping. I like them. They have become a part of my every day wear even though I had initially purchased them with skirt wear in mind. They are rugged enough to wear every day I am outside working on the beautiful country home that God has blessed our family with.
This is the real me.
