Settling In . . .

Greetings from Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY!!!  We made it and we're settling into our new house nicely.  No small feat when you've added a mother (mine) and her two dogs to the mix just three days after moving in.  The three of them will be staying in our family room until their new apartment is built in our garage.  They have a nice big room and their own bathroom.  It looks like a little studio apartment complete with her own refrigerator and cook top.  Megan has been going down to hang out with her Nana nightly.  I heard them giggling last night.  I know they're both so happy to be able to spend much more time together.  : ) 

I've also located my camera charger and a cord to load the few photos I've been taking onto the computer finally.  Right now it's more of a focus on unpacking than photo taking.  We are still a very long way from being unpacked but we're working on it every day and we've even started to decorate a little bit.

One of many rock walls in our neighborhood.  I just love them!!!

We woke up to a marathon running passed our house last Sunday morning which was kind of surprising considering how quiet our neighborhood is. 
These have since been cleared away.  : )
Now I'm off to do a much needed grocery shop.  It's cloudy and chilly here today and I'm in the mood to make something warm and rib sticking for dinner tonight.  I'm open to suggestions!!  : )

I also want to say how sad I am for the people of Paris and all of France.  My thoughts and prayers are with you all.  I know how much the terrorist attacks of 9/11 changed us here in the U.S.  It is a new day for you all.  Things are different but life will go on and you will all be a stronger nation because of it.  I would also like to add that not everybody in this country is happy with how our President is handling this war on terrorism  nor was everybody happy with his lack of support during the Charlie Hebdo incident.  Sometimes we are just plain baffled by his actions or, should I say, inaction.  And that's all I'm going to say on that.  I felt it just needed to be said.

Have a beautiful Wednesday ~ Wendy

I am thrilled that you have moved and are starting to settle into your new home. All sounds good, a good plain old fashioned stew with home baked bread is always my go to dish when it turns cold. Decorating sounds good, making your mark and truly making it home. Take care.

So, so glad to hear you've moved and are settling and it all sounds like it's going well! I also want to say how wonderful it is that your mom is moving in (sort of) with you! Megan will treasure the time with her Nana.

And on the subject of the war on terrorism....just this morning my husband and I were talking about our President's lack of, um, action on this issue. How many more people have to needlessly die before he stands up and takes some sort of action?

Off the soapbox now....

Love the pictures - that white picket fence is perfect. Glad to see you're settling in - it seems to take forever, doesn't it? We made a move almost 3 years ago and we still have things to do. Love the glass on your front door. Happy Settling In!

So glad to see that you are all settling in so nicely! Finnegan looks very happy if I do say so! I love that it looks like he's smiling! Enjoy your new place and this new chapter and I cannot wait to follow along with your adventures! xo
