We have returned home after three glorious months in the South avoiding the worst of winter. We are grateful for the generosity of Sister Pat and Brother-in-law Wesley in hosting us for a bit over two months of that time on their ranch in Texas. It was wonderful!
Now, we are back in Ohio and have unpacked most of the stuff one carries on a three month trip. BUT, I am starting on a new project to improve the homefront. I have been thinking about this project for most of the time we have been gone. I have decided that since downsizing is probably not practical with home prices being what they are, we should enjoy the house we have. After all, it is paid for, and there are rooms we just do not use. Like the living room…or the front room….as it may. Here it is as it stands when we return and what it looks like after two days of heavy lifting and washing contents.
Just the beginning of the project. I am pleased to be using the “front room” for the first time in years. The list of things to buy includes a sofa bed, gas log stove, rugs….so far.
