A Couple of Late Bloomers
We all need to stop and smell the roses and I'm no exception. Since Labor Day it seems that I've been on a non-stop roller coaster ride and it has had lots of ups and downs. I think I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel....I sure hope it isn't a train!!
We are making good headway on the house, the yard sale is behind us, and we have a lot less stuff cluttering up our lives. My new eating regime is going really good. I've lost a few pounds just in the past week and that's always a nice thing to happen to me. I'm hoping that a lot more pounds will leave this body in the next few months! I'm tired of carrying them around!
HB is doing a lot of research on finding us a place to retire. Some of you already know that we are looking in the TN/KY general area. We would like to find a place with a little bit of land and an older house. I'm tired of living in newer houses. They all seem to look the same. I want a house with some character. And a front porch. I want a front porch to sit on and watch what Mother Nature has to offer.
Hopefully there will be a big room that I can turn into a studio/computer room. And a workshop for HB so he can continue to make his wood sculptures. (You will have to scroll down to the end of that post to see it.)
He has two more right now that he has either on paper or in his mind. I think he has parts of one cut out and waiting for him.
I guess we're just a couple of late bloomers! We're both just finding our creative selves and learning to express what we have in our heads.
So it is a good thing to stop and smell the roses when we have a chance. We have several right outside our front door.
