The boxes are being unpacked and the furniture is finding a preliminary place to rest. It is our intention to paint every wall and ceiling in our new home and eventually every piece of furniture will have to be moved again to allow us to accomplish this. Even though it’s only been a few days since our furniture and other belongings arrived, I was finding it very unsettling to live in this prolonged state of chaos.
Here are a few peeks of some of the ‘presentable’ areas of the main floor of our house.
The sitting room…
The dining room…
The living room with the gross light fixture and wallpaper…
and my quilt cupboard.
The kitchen is about 75% complete and is functional.
One of the coolest features about the kitchen is the oil stove which provides a mean heat and makes the room wonderfully cozy.
This view is going out to the back. As you can see, as soon as one box is emptied, two more seem to materialize. *sigh*
We dropped Mac off at the vet’s this morning to have his teeth cleaned and as we were driving around waiting to pick him up, I snapped these photos of Granville Ferry just across the river from Annapolis Royal. We had a light dusting of snow last night and everything looked so clean and fresh.
We still have a very long way to go to make this house ‘ours’ and are going to take it just one step at a time. There’s no rush…after all, we’re retired!
I’m hoping to get a start on my studio this weekend. Let’s see if that happens.
Oh to be stitching!
