Home Sweet Home

Wow! It's been a while and we've been quite busy. We're feeling pretty settled in the new house now. Most cardboard boxes are gone. (With the exception of the basement!) I keep telling Fred that it looks more like a department store down there. :-/
Next on the agenda is to decide on some curtains. It's a good thing we sit back off the road a bit!!
I really love it here. It's very peaceful and relaxing. We've got lots of turkeys, fox, frogs, turtles and yeah, unfortunately there have been a couple of snake sightings. I would rather die than try to ever get used to them, but I don't think I'm going to have a choice here! We even had a "pet" rooster for four days. As a joke, a friend of ours put one of his roosters in a tree right outside our bedroom window one night. 4:30 the next morning when that sucker crowed, I sat straight up in bed. Haha!! He found a tree to perch in at the end of our driveway and would hop up in there each evening and stay till morning and then had the run of the property. We believe a fox got him the fourth night. It did not sound pretty. Eek! We miss the big guy. : (
Fred's getting the pen ready to bring "Pork chop" home and then we will eventually add some chickens to the farm. LOL Our neighbor has 16 of them!
The girls are enjoying their summer. We got away to Hammonasset Beach and Mystic this past weekend and had so much fun.
We're working on planning a BBQ for the end of the summer!!
