Slowly but surely we are settling into our new house. We've unpacked the necessities and the rest can wait until once the cold sets in. There are so many projects we want to tackle, inside and out, it seems a little overwhelming, but so wonderful at the same time.
Right now while the weather permits, we're focusing on improvements to the outside: trimming bushes, removing dead ones, raking, planning out soon to be tilled garden space, and learning how to take care of a pool (which will soon be closed for the winter...another adventure in itself!).
The inside will be getting it's fair share of attention soon enough: removing faux wood paneling, painting our neon blue kitchen cabinets, taking down 70's wallpaper in every.single.room., painting trim white (right now we have a mixture of neon blue, maroon, and mint green), and maybe, just maybe, tackling our first big renovation, the upstairs bath, where a black toilet and hunter's orange counter top mingle with tan tile and brownish-yellowish linoleum. It's all so exciting still. We've been waiting for this and we couldn't be happier.
