Returning Home

A lot has happened over the last 8 months. Still not exactly like I visualize with all my gardens but it is getting there. To repeat what so many comment to me "what is your hurry".
Guess it is where I am on my journey through this life. Do not know how long the energy I am experiencing will continue and I am well aware I am in the last chapters of this life.
This is not what I started out to build but my plans always have a way of just evolving. Guess a work in progress and each day brings another idea.
With the size of my family this home is more appropriate. Guess my dream of that 2 room cabin with a tin roof - with a path leading to it - was not the best idea for this lady.
Might add that my sign is not finished. But then maybe it is - I am not looking for any painting sign jobs on the side. I wanted it primitive and primitive it is.
Anyway here are a few new pictures.

One Woman sharing on an early Sunday morning. She better get busy and continue cooking for family lunch.

You have accomplished such a tremendous amount in such a short time! I know younger people who have lived in their houses over a year and still haven't started on landscaping. Keeping up with you must be a challenge.

Tabor, thank you for your continual support. You are good for me. I spend so much time alone I wish you lived nearby, but then I guess I am basically a loner. All I know is that I am thankful for this home and when the city homes sells that will take the edge off of the occasional anxiety!!! I have to be organized and do not clutter. Do not mind in other peoples homes but not mine.

Your new home looks larger than I had pictured it. It is really a lovely home and I am sure it will be the gathering place for your entire family at holiday time. Over the river and through the woods, to grandmother's house we go.

Darlene thanks for checking in.
I think the home looks larger since it is a side view.
Just one big room with kitchen at end and bedroom, bath and utility room. Then the upstairs loft, large bedroom and bath for visitors. I have never had a deck before and really like it. Also the screen porch is great.
