Tour of the new Homestead

Been in my new place for almost a month now. Hard to believe. That moving stuff was a pain, especially since there is not much storage here and I had to be creative.

Tiny, like an apartment, but my own house. No shared walls, just a shared driveway, which I hope does not become a problem. Not really a problem not, because it will be a while before I can swing a car payment/down payment. 

About 650 square feet. But the best part is the laundry room. Washer and Dryer included. And they are nice. Nice new kitchen too. Or maybe the best part is the quiet neat neighbors. Or maybe the best part is the walk to town. Or maybe the best part is the pretty yard. Or the deer, birds, bunny, chipmunk, and black squirrel (although the deer and chipmunk eat the day lily and roses).

First picture is the street view from my front door. The whole one side of the house is day lily, the other side has a little patio shaded by trees. The last picture is my front yard. Teeny but secluded and pretty. I have a nice back yard. too.

I don't have much in the way of furniture, but I'm getting there. I have a lot of wonderful friends and family who have helped me. I lost a lot moving from NY quickly after the fire. My DD lost a lot too, so I left her some things. I can't thank my friends and family enough for the things they've given me. From coat, hangers, to silverware, to dishes, sheets, sofa, and even that printer in the top picture. 

My daughter has been able to find me some really good deals on furniture too. I'm getting there. By the holidays, I should be in good shape. 

I don't have a car yet, so I have to walk to town. It's a mile hike just to the Post Office, but it will do me good. I did it in 80 degree weather and I managed OK. Besides, town is so quaint and beautiful that it's a pleasure to walk to. 

The first picture is the man made waterfall by the park, the second is our famous Popcorn Shop that is suspended over the natural falls. The last picture is just a sample of the beautiful Century homes here. 

I never in my wildest dreams thought that at this time, this year, I would have enough money to live on, and find a dream house in this town I love so much. I've had a lot of struggles the past few years, but today, I can listen to the birds chirping and go out and water my flowers.
