Sunny Afternoon

Side yard looking northeast
This past Sunday was really the first day, in almost a week, that the sun came out.  It's been raining almost every day that we've been in the new house.

The above photo shows all that is left of the trees after the septic system was installed.  Once things start to green up, we'll see what survived and have the trees cleaned up.  

The small planes were taking advantage of the pretty weather and we enjoyed watching them fly overhead.

We met some of the neighborhood kids and their dad.  He graciously invited us over to walk a trail in his back yard.  The little one had fun playing with the kids and it was nice to meet another one of the neighbors.

The neighbor, mentioned above, has a unique property as his house backs up to the woods and he has a bit of a ravine on his property.  He and his kids have created all sorts of trails and bridges over the creek.  There were deer tracks along the trail and he told us the deer had eaten his apple trees down to the nub...

We are still working on making the house "home".  It's going to be a work in progress for a while, but little by little, we'll get there.

Thank you for all the well wishes on our move, I appreciate your nice comments.  I'll try to make my rounds to all your blogs soon, but real life is keeping me hopping!

Have a great day!


  1. Sounds like a good start with some nice neighbors. Enjoy the nice weather!

  2. We are on septic here too. We had to put in a new one about 10 years ago. ouch! So far, so god. The creek through your neighbors yard is so neat! I can't wait to see your new home, and what you do with it!!

  7. It is neat that you have welcoming neighbors and you have a creek to explore! We have a bit of a creek on our property and I love to get close enough to it to hear it soothing bubbling along. xx
