I’m getting emails from people wanting to know what’s up and why I haven’t posted- and well… There’s a lot I need to and mean to say, but I’ve been buried in trying to get the house together. This is the only room that’s actually completely put together. My sewing/making stuff room is a close second- a pretty high priority since it’s my source of income:
My old slab farmhouse table, while it won’t fit in Little House’s tiny kitchen, is actually being repurposed as a work table, and I am loving it. I took the lion’s share of the basement for my workspace, but the kids still have plenty of room to play.
Shhhh…. I don’t want to say this too loud, but I think I may kind of like living in a smaller house. It’s much easier to keep an ear on the kids with us all closer. It’s easier to keep clean. It’s easier to keep on top of chores because I’ve had to pare down so much stuff- even laundry is easier because I cleaned out all the clothes we don’t really need. You should SEE the piles in the garage that are going to be part of the yard sale I’m throwing! Phoebe the buffet is up for grabs, patio furniture, my adirondack chairs, an antique piano, clothes, shoes, kitchen stuff, pretty sit-arounds, books, toys… it’s going to be great.
