Well, it's officially ours. Our new house. The sellers moved out on Saturday and we started cleaning and moving in yesterday. Talk about work! Not only does the whole house need to be remodeled, but I don't think it's been cleaned in quite some time. We were blessed to get it for such a good price, so I guess things like this happen. We pulled out the carpeting, Started tearing off wallpaper, bagging up dozens of bags of garbage. The shop is full of garbage, the barn is full of manure. The yard has lots of junk, especially in the parts that haven't been mowed. My mom seemed to finally give up yesterday as she was helping. I don't think she's too happy about our new place. But I see possibilities. We do have a variety of smells in the house that may take some time to remove. Cat pee, cigarettes, and just a uck smell of ??? Dd2 says she won't sleep there. Just get her a warm sleeping bag and she'll live outside.
I keep forgetting my camera when we go out there. I want to get some pictures up. The gardens have been neglected for quite awhile, but it's fun to start pulling weeds and finding treasures in amongst them. I found a lily, pink and yellow yarrow, mint, tiger lilies, horseradish, and that's only a small part of what's there. There are also fruit trees in need of some major pruning. I'll get to that this fall. There is so much potential. I'm very excited to see what we can do with the place-or what God can do with it.
