This has been a great week. I took the day off yesterday and cleaned up my house and caught up with the washing. Now I have the whole day to……work on our accounts, pay bills, balance check books and maybe, just maybe, deal with a few of those boxes that are stuffed in the closets and in the garage.

Right now I’m watching “Fashion in Film”, blogging, reading the book “Twilight” and I just finished my buttered biscuit…….well my two buttered biscuits……no coffee this morning—sipping on Diet Coke. The puppy girls are right here with me.

I may take a shower and go back to bed with my book……..whatever the whole day is mine. I did that for a little while yesterday morning. I was lying in bed with my book, gazing out the bedroom window at the ducks on the lake and the puppy girls were cuddled on top of me. And I was thinking, how great is this? I felt so comfortable, so cozy and so at home.

I am really enjoying this new house. I have to admit, I had my doubts because it was such a transition and struggle……finishing, moving, closing with the bank. But it was all worth it.

I have ordered sheers for all of the windows except for the dinning room and I think I’m going to put roman shades in there. The last thing will be to finish unpacking those boxes and either putting stuff in the attic or up for a garage sale. Again, I knew I had some stuff, but honestly—it is embarrassing. Also we need to put up the pictures. David needs to finish the deck and there are a few other things that need finishing—the entertainment center, some toe molding needs putting down, the microwave needs mounting under the cabinets, oh and my doll cabinet has got to be finished. Hmmm seems like more stuff than I thought.

Have I told you that I am in love with my dishwasher? I give her a little kiss every now and then. I have totally quit the paper/Styrofoam plate thing. We eat everything off of the fine everyday china. (Royal Doulton--"Ting" above--love it because the pattern is embossed into all the pieces) Am I helping the environment as well? And doesn’t a dishwasher use less water than washing/rinsing in the sink?

I’m constantly turning on and turning off the lights. I’m trying to keep the electric bill down. But I wonder what the neighbors think……..when they seen the lights going on and off all the time.
