Finally after six months, I am now the proud owner of my house at 918 Reeves. I am amazed that I have owned three different houses in less than ten years. No wonder I can't find anything!! I do remember where things were in Nashville--problem is, I'm in Abilene now. I guess it will all just take a while to feel really grounded in the house.
It is nice to know that this little piece of brick is mine (as long as I pay the payments), and that we can finally hang all the pictures. Isn't it strange how much difference that makes in feeling at home... I am really tired of stumbling over them on the floor.
The gremlins must know that the house is mine now; I just spilled a glass of orange juice on the fireplace and carpet.---thank goodness for Resolve. The air outside smells of rain, and it has turned cold--we are supposed to get a real "norther" this weekend. I am really enjoying the gas heat in the house--so much warmer. This is the first gas heat I have had since living in Potosi.
The kids came over and decorated the tree on Monday night. Brandon asked if I minded a "kid decorated tree". Mind??? I love it!!! So much better than having to do it myself. The tree also makes the house seem more like my home.
Thank you God for my new-to-me warm house. May you be honored inside its doors!
