I thought I'd share some photos of the house. These are from Sunday when we went up for a little while.
The House. It has a distinctive look, doesn't it? We were told it was built in the 1920's or 1930's. I love the shape of the roof. It looks quite cottage-ish. :)The Door. We have a red front door. This is the same color red as the dining room is painted. So you can get an idea of how very red indeed the dining room is! David loves this door since he can open and shut it on his own. He thinks that is a very grown up accomplishment. The Living Room. This is the back half of the room, and the picture is not very good. Note the Tan walls. I think there are eight windows in the living room but there may be only seven. I can't remember.The Living Room - Front Half. These are windows you see on the front of the house. And of course, who can forget about Malachi? The Dining Room. This is about half of the dining room. The hanging lamp in the middle of the room goes above the table, I suppose. It is very low but I think it will nicely illuminate our suppers. It will be much nicer when the red paint is no more. The Kitchen. Or at least part of it. This is a horrible picture as the lens cover on the camera was not all the way open, but it gives you an idea. It is painted pale green. It is almost a pretty color but the more I look at it the more limey it looks. I would prefer a pale sage green. So the sink and cabinets are along one wall, the stove/oven is in a sort of island in the middle of the kitchen and the refrigerator is against the opposite wall. There is a door by the refrigerator that leads into a room that was at one time a back porch. David wants to use it for a pantry and for a deep freezer and for storage.
The Bedroom. I think this will be the bedroom that David and I will use. It is nearest the stairs and David doesn't want the boys room near the stairs. There is a landing on the top of the stairs and two bedrooms are on one side and two on the other. The bathroom and a hall closet is directly in front. This room is a pale peach color. I actually love this. . .I don't think I'll have to do anything to this room. The boys bedroom will be right next door. Those are all the pictures I took of the inside. Here are some outside ones of the boys:
Here is Judah with a dirty face. He had spent a while running through the yard and then decided to spend some quality time with the hay rack.David decided to climb on it. He loved it. He was taller than me. Our view to the West. David wasn't able to take any time off of work this week to move so I would ask for prayer that he will not be too terribly exhausted when he goes back to work on Monday. He gets off work at noon on Saturday and then is going to pick up the truck we will move in. We don't have anyone to help us move so we are going to have to do this on our own. . .but with God's help it can be done.
Have a lovely week!
