Well, it's Sunday and we've been living at The Peaceable for a full week now. I've got the livingroom going on! I've hung pictures and art and special things. I've cleaned and organized the bookcase and am amazed at how many books I have that my friends and colleagues have written. I am so blessed! I've decorated and it is a pleasant, comfortable place to sit!
Can't say the same for the rest of The Peaceable yet, but slowly, step by step, item by item, stuff is finding its place here - well some of it. Other stuff is finding itself in a box to be hauled to the Friends of the Clarksville Library Thrift Store one day soon. It is wonderful to be here - as of yesterday we have both Hughesnet internet service AND Direct TV service up and running at the same time! I've been without the internet EIGHT days this week and without TV four days. Until yesterday, never both at the same time, so this is good : )
|Still have lots to put up and organize but little by little, and I LOVE having a dishwasher again!!! Greg and Ben are running through playing. We've got so much R*O*O*M here!|
We are staying cool as The Peaceable is very well insulated. I have lists of my lists of what I need at Walmart and Lowes and Things to be Done here at the house. We got the shower up and running Thursday, so I don't stink anymore ; ) tee hee hee We have EXCELLENT water pressure - good shower! Since we're like almost 1000 feet from teh meter, wasn't sure how that was going to be.
Our first guests were firstborn son Matthew and his Dana and her mama Margie. They came last Saturday - or was it Sunday? Could've been Monday, my days are scrambled. Anyway, they brought hamburgers and chips and we all ate together It was a blessings not to have to worry about the meal that evening. Then granddaughter Mercedes surprised us early Friday morning as our first out-of-state guest! She drove straight through from West Virginia and we were thrilled to get to hug her. Ya'll might remember she had a horrible car accident swerving to miss a deer and busted herself all up and y'all prayed for her. We were thrilled as were all her brothers to see her. She went on into town and is coming back Monday to spend the night on her way back home.
Saturday evening, last nigh, our first dinner guests were Matt and Dana who shared a Mexican casserole, salad, and fresh steamed squash Naomi Lawler - neighbor NOW and friend, brought to me from her garden. They brought us a water filter : ) but it wouldn't fit on our faucet : ( We're not used to the taste of the water here. It isn't wonderful right off like it was in Lydia. It actually reminds me of something nasty, but I'm trying to drink it - the coffee is very different! Naomi came over after they'd left to pick up a smaller casserole I made for her while I was making ours. And I made banana pudding for us and one for her and Don, too : )
So our first week at The Peaceable has been a good one. Lots of hard work and we're plenty sore, but "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Praise Him!
