Not Sweating The Small Stuff

I am waiting. I am bursting at the seams to tell you so much about the house.

I won't though until its official. Within a week?

Call me superstitious, but I don't want to be counting those chicks before the eggs or you know, whatever.

So I've been planning and taking care of details.

Details like getting the phone, cable and internet trenched out to the new house.

Within the last year fiber optic lines were installed at our current house for Internet, phone and cable. A special crew came and trenched the line and installed the new system.

So while I was in town running errands I stopped by their office and asked them how I should go about getting the fiber optic line trenched to the new house.

Good news, bad news. They will trench out the line, but they only do it when the special crew is in town, which is only three to four times a year.

Aaannddd, the next time they will be here is near the end of August or early September.

Aaannddddd I have to have a foundation down or they won't/can't do it. If I don't have a foundation by then, they will come back when it works for them, which could be as late as next spring. Oh the joys of small town living.

Not digging the idea of no Internet at the the new old house for that long.

Telephone? No biggie, I've got my cell.

No TV? No problem, I've done that for years!

But no Internet? Not happening.

Anyways, I'm crossing my fingers and praying a foundation is there by the time the fiber optic crew comes to town.

I have claimed this the year of the calm, so I am reminding myself to take it all one day at a time. This is a total first world problem that isn't even a problem yet so I'll just roll with it.

In other news, I just found these and I am so pumped.

I love window seats. I love the coziness, the character, the warmth, basically everything about them.

According to the website these windows can be installed where a regular window is! How exciting is that?

Since there are windows that need to be replaced anyways this might work out great.

Thanks for stopping by. What other little/big things (like internet) should I be taking care of?

Have a lovely evening!

The Farmer

I trust that, by now, you have all seen the commercial heard round the world. You know, the one that stopped all action and silenced a nation when the soft rumble of that voice drifted into living rooms on a Super Bowl Sunday.Yes that commercial. Paul Harvey's voice, unmistakable in its sincerity and beauty, spoke of a people whom work from sun up till sun down with no recognition. He spoke of a people whom care for their baby animals and pour their blood, sweat and tears into helping them grow. He spoke of a people, so foreign to many in the world today.He spoke of a people whom many have forgotten. He spoke of a people; my people. The farmer. I am a fourth generation farmer married to a fourth generation farmer. Together we are raising the fifth generation. We don't do it because its easy, it's not. The hours my husband spends working rival that of any doctor or lawyer I have ever met. We don't do it because it's profitable, some years it's all we can do to p…

A Crate and a Challenge

One of my favorite blogs is having a Pintrest Challenge. They do it a couple times a year and its just a fun time to challenge everyone to complete a project they've pinned on Pintrest. I've been wanting to get in on the action, but never found the time. Oh yeah and a little thing called, I don't do Pintrest. It's not because I'm not interested or I don't think I'll like it. I'm terrified of it! I already spend too much time perusing my favorite house app and a bunch of blogs I follow, and Facebook. If I added something as captivating as Pintrest, my house and kids may just go completely uncared for. So in the spirit of playing along with the Pintrest challenge I thought I'd share our headboard that I made a couple years back, loooong before I started blogging. It is by far one of the projects I am most proud of! Almost three years ago, the hubs and I got a new bed, a giant sized, California King! It came with a frame, but no headboard. We had alrea…

Ugly

Earlier this year I spoke at a conference. I talked about gratitude, grace and joy. I was fully immersed in it and felt it down to my toes.

Then life got turned upside down and busy and somehow I forgot everything.

The last month or so has been a mess. I hate the rush of summer and the vortex that results and sucks up every minute and shreds my plans. I have let it consume me. I have been wallowing in self pity.

It all bubbled up and exploded last week when I threw a tantrum and in an attempt to keep from yelling I kicked the wall. My house that I love, that I built with my hands, that I poured myself into; I kicked it and put a hole in the wall and injured my foot.

It was stupid. The tantrum was stupid. I feel stupid.

But even more than that, I am angry at myself. I am angry that I allowed myself to get to the point that I would act that way.

I wasn't being grateful, I wasn't practicing grace and I certainly was no where near feeling joy.

I wanted my children and my husband t…
