A few of my sweet virtual friends have wondered what happened to me ;-)
Well, I’m still around!
But the Red Hen Home has officially changed locations…from Utah to Washington! When did all this happen? In December, right before Christmas! So it has been a very busy time for my family, and the blog kind of fell by the wayside.
So here’s a little update for those who are interested.
We moved in on the 17th of December, and the NEXT DAY was my baby’s 5th birthday. It was a scramble to get the kitchen in some kind of order so she could have a birthday dinner! Thankfully she allowed herself to be convinced that ice cream sundaes would be a grand birthday dessert, and I didn’t have to try to bake a cake!
The next several days there was MORE scrambling to get unpacked, as I HATE living in limbo…and I couldn’t imagine trying to feel Christmas-y while living out of boxes!
I would say we were probably 90% unpacked (inside the house) within the first week.
After Christmas, I started tackling the garage! It was not an easy task to fit everything from a garage, a garden shed, and my beautiful workshop into one two-car space! But I am exceedingly proud of myself that on the 4-week anniversary of moving in…we were able to park ONE car in the garage!
Inside the house we are very snug and comfortable, and my mind is starting to spin with projects I’d like to do. First on the list—a home office again! Our beautiful office furniture was included in the sale of our Utah home, so we’re working off a card table…and not enjoying it!
Then we also have an empty dining room. Well, it’s not completely empty….
…it’s the new home of the suitcase wall! ;-)
It feels more like home just to have it up again!
