New House Happiness

Well it's been a happy first week in the new house, doing all those nesting new house things. Here is a picture of my kitchen, which I have to say, really does make it look a lot classier than it is. But never mind, I still like it. A lot.















This is the master bedroom from the living room. The house has dark floorboards and paneling in those two rooms, but I think the effect is a little bit refined actually as long as I am vigilant with the removal of dog hair, because it shows up in the sun something terrible. Like this morning I had to vacuum before I could enjoy my breakfast. But I bought a dear little vacuum and she does a bang up job, so I don't mind, yet.



















Anyway, the house has all these different moods, which is interesting. The upstairs is carpeted and cozy, the girls bedroom is quite cottage-y with yellow walls and Skaterboy's bedroom has the unusual addition of a balcony which overlooks the kitchen. The kitchen is country-ish, and the living room and master bedroom are quite eighteen-hundreds dark wood.
So as you travel through the house it's like visiting different houses entirely, which I think contributes to the house seeming larger than it is. If it's not too boring I will take and post more pictures next time.



















Here's what we woke up to yesterday morning - hurray! First snow. The twins dashed out to romp and play, and I took this pic. from our front porch. That church across the street tolls the hour all day long with a variety of catchy and melancholic tunes, which is quite fun.
They say a change is as good as a holiday, but I have a feeling that living in this little town might actually feel like being on perpetual holiday. Lovely!
