Hello all. I know I’ve been away for quite some time. 2 things have changed since I last wrote. My husband graduated from college and we moved out-of-state. Between those 2 things, both of us have been pretty busy. The move from Iowa to Missouri went perfectly. Then only problem is that our families aren’t here. They are about 3 1/2 hours away from us. Before they were only 1 hour. This past weekend, they helped us move in and get settled. Here are some pictures of the new house and the yard.
Heres the living room. We don’t have any real furniture yet. The pups chewed the last set to pieces, literally.
Nice big kitchen. We actually have empty cupboards. That hasn’t happened in about 5 years. Sharing cupboard and fridge space is no fun.
This is the other side of the kitchen where we put our oh so small table. Hopefully we will get a bigger one someday, but for right now, it works just fine for the 2 of us.

The other view from the deck. The play set was left with the house and were not quite sure what to do with it. We can’t sell it because it still belongs to the previous owners, but we also think it would be too much work to take it apart. We would like to have more yard space, but were just not sure about what to do.
Now, I know this doesn’t look like much now, but this is going to be my garden site. The plan was to take out 2 3×7 sections of tile and plant in the empty space. That way I would have a little walkway between and around my plants. But when we went to pull up 1 tile to see how hard it would be, we found out that there is a layer of rock on top of a black tarp. This makes it a little more complicated, but not impossible. I plan on leaving the cage up because, as you know, I have a pesky dog that likes to play in the dirt and I’m sure she would love to play in there.
My husband has a week before he has to go back to work so I’m thinking that we should get the tiles up and the rock out before he starts again. I would like to take pictures of the process but I can’t guarantee that it will happen. Sometimes I get started and completely forget to take pictures of the whole thing.
Have a great Monday!
