Simplicity where ever we go… :D

Adjusting here has been a progress. For people who really had no social life, coming back to where we both grew up has brought its fair share of visitors. We’ve gotten most everything unpacked and in place. A few more touches over the next couple weeks and we should be good to go 🙂
It’s been really nice to take comfort in the simple things with so many changes. I’ve been hand washing dishes for awhile now, using the dishwasher as a drying rack and holder. No matter where you are, what’s going on around you. The mindfulness spent just washing a plate, a cup.. It’s the same anywhere you go. Yesterday I found myself a little tense from all the kids here.. I was filling the sink before I realized to have that relaxation. One dish at a time, one sink to the next, rinsed to the dishwasher to dry.. very nice indeed.
So we are contemplating two raised beds in the front yard. As gorgeous as the oaks in the back are, they don’t let any sunlight through. The front yard gets nice afternoon sun. I see a lowes trip soon. We visited the flea market on Sunday. Got a pineapple and bag of tomatoes. I want to go ahead and get some new canning equipment, make some salsa to start 🙂
It does feel good to be back.. There are a lot of little things to do around here over the next couple years, then who knows where the wind may blow us 😉 I love the idea of this being our house.
