Today marks the end of the second week as the owners of Bellrose Cottage! We are all beginning to feel at home here, even Charley. We are enjoying our lovely little home and neighborhood, unpacking the last few boxes, and tweaking the arrangement of our knick knacks and paddy whacks.
Philip is enjoying his new grill, the garage, and his fancy new Husqvarna mower, which he has already used twice. I’m fully taking advantage of having a washer and dryer for the first time and have done a few more loads than probably necessary- so many little baby clothes and diapers and sheets to prewash! Of all of us, Charley seems the most resistant to change, spending as much time as we allow on his mustard chair and as little time as possible in his new backyard. He has seemed a little more interested in the yard once he discovered that a woodchuck lives in the back corner of it…and we discovered that Charley needs a tie-out collar.
A few highlights from our week:
I think I’m done with baby knitting now (until we meet the baby, of course), and am planning to excavate my Icelandic lopi sweater from my knitting boxes this afternoon and start working on that again. Other items on today’s agenda include eating our first loaf of bread machine bread (I used this recipe) and staying out of the heat.
