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!

Changes

I was cleaning today, which gave me time to think, and thinking always leads me here. The house is 'weekend messy', so decided to clean my floors, because The Nester says if your floors are clean the rest of the house feels clean too, even if it isn’t.  I have found that it is pretty good advice, so when everything else feels chaotic, I clean the floors. Of course for me, cleaning the floors also means picking up the toys, shoes, clothes, etc. so that I can even begin to vacuum, which naturally leads to a cleaner home as well.  While cleaning up I began to think about how this blog has evolved over the years, from a desire to write like The Nester about home, into what it is now.  I started writing this blog when I was dreaming of building a new home. Then plans changed, life took turns, and we ended up in a home so different than I expected and so perfect for our family. Somewhere along the way I realized that home wasn’t in the walls that went up or in the co

From My Christmas Wish List to Yours!

One of my favorite stores, West Elm, has now opened a special section called The Market. It specializes in kitchen, garden and personal care. Lets just say I am in love. If I had unlimited resources to spend in one store to do a total overhaul on my house, it would be West Elm, and now with the new Market, I am in lust too. So here are a few of my favorites. Check it out and maybe you'll get some great Christmas ideas for someone on your list. Or maybe my hubby will see this and get a great idea for me! Hint, hint! Enjoy! Incredibly large, amazing cutting board . I've seen these boards doubling as art hanging on the wall, then they take up no storage space! Cast iron Dutch oven . Great for one-pot meals. These glass jars come in varying sizes. I'm thinking they would work well for brown sugar with that rubber seal. I would definitely get plenty of use out of a cheese knife set during the holidays and all year round. Copper measuring spoons . Seriously? Fantastic

We're Buying A House!

Batten down the hatches and hold onto your hard hats, we are going to be fixing up an old farmhouse ! We made an offer on the old house and it was accepted! I cannot wrap my head around it or even begin to believe it yet, but it's real and this is actually happening! The legal paperwork is being drawn up and I will have sooooo much more to tell you all soon. For now though, I can only tell you how incredibly, undeniably, one hundred percent excited I am. (Terrified too, we're going to be loading a ninety year old building on a moving trailer and trekking it across the countryside, but more on that later!) Oh my, I just want to scream and tell you every little detail, but I will hold off until everything is settled and signed on the dotted line. I do want to give a little shout out to the owners, I'm pretty sure they might see this, and they know who they are. "Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. This has been my dream for a really long time, and I truly
