Sunsets and Porches

Hello! We still don't have internet service so I am at hubby's office using his computer. Couldn't stand to go any longer without blogging. I've been writing down the things I want to blog about. The list is getting long.
So, this is the view from our backyard on the first evening we were there. I love how the clouds are peaking over the trees and you can see the sunbeams shining out.
I keep walking out on the front porch and thinking, "This porch is huge!" It really is. I knew there was a reason I never got rid of this table. It's been in my garage for a few years. Now it is perfect on the porch. I had my breakfast there this morning. Feel free to come visit me on my porch sometime.

It is going to take me a while to unpack boxes. I want to start decorating but can't do that until the essentials are put away. Had to do something a tad bit creative today.
These are old nesting boxes. I bought them several years ago when we still lived in KS. When we moved to AR there really wasn't a place to put them so they just ended up in the garage. This new house really doesn't have a mud room, but there is a space inside the backdoor that I could already tell was going to be overrun with shoes and clutter. Today I moved the nesting boxes in there. Each family member has two boxes. I'm not sure if you can see or not, but I put our initials in the middle. That's my creativity for the day.

Here are some other things I want to blog about. I'm out of time for today so I will have to save the details for future posts.
  • neighborly neighbors
  • fire ants
  • walking on a country road
  • guests in the bathroom
  • blackberries in the woods
  • new town, new thrift store, fun find
  • found a doctor

Oh, my! So much I want to write about. Sure hope we get internet SOON!

Thank you to my friends who have called or emailed to see how I am doing. I miss you all!

So glad you are enjoying your new surroundings! Would love to sit on the porch with you and have a cup of coffee. Someday. Glad you were successful in finding a doctor. Will look forward to your future blogs. Love you all.

Vanesa,
I love the view you showed of the sun over the clouds/trees. God is awesome to paint that picture for YOU! I love your porch, and the table you've set up. If I was anywwhere near you I'd bring a coffee cake over and we'd sit there eating and chatting! I'm looking forward to hearing more, especially since you gave us your blogging topic list! And...fire ants??? OUCH! Take care!
