Life is becoming somewhat more normal now that we are mostly unpacked and feeling a bit organized. Though frequently, I think of something I need, but am not able to find.
We are renting a parsonage; I think it dates to the 1930's and is a two story farmhouse style with a more modern addition on the back. Except for the addition, it has beautiful wooden floors and wide moldings and trim. My work space is in the front room and has windows on three sides--the light is perfect. Of all the rooms, that one is my favorite. The downstairs has all the space the two of us need--living room, kitchen, dining room, bedroom, workroom, and sunroom, as well as bathroom and a large laundry room, so we are using the upstairs mainly as storage.
After 23 years in our last home, it's a bit unsettling to be living in a strange place, but we are calling it an 'adventure' and looking forward to building in the spring. I'm missing all my gardens, the hens, and the long walks around our lanes & meadow, but am looking forward to the extra time I should have for sewing this winter. And, baking some homemade bread has made this seem a little bit more like Home.
