Val wants pictures! But I don't have the Internet (yet). But I do have a fancy phone and a blogger app! But the pictures from that fancy phone don't quite do it justice. Sigh. Oh well. Here are a few glimpses.
The kitchen is petite but highly functional, thanks to that island and smart shelving in the cupboards.
No pictures on the walls yet, or curtains on the windows. It will come. Here's looking back toward the front door:
Next, a look up the stairs. Custom fitting tables in the entry and individual stair rugs were sold to us by the previous owners (as were a number of other items, including the floor rug and coat rack, bless them):
Last but not least, the family room in the back! This room truly deserves its exclamation point. Higher ceilings, glorious (immaculately painted) fireplace and built in cupboards, large bright windows, and a perfectly crouching 8 year old, playing wii. We will be spending many hours there.
Only two drawbacks so far: first, the magic cleaning fairies that kept the house spotless whenever we visited this spring seem to have vanished. Second, I'm still tired and grumpy by dinner. I suppose a broom will remedy the first problem and school starting next week will hopefully help with the other. Or maybe a good night's sleep or two? Come on Soren!
