Yesterday we all went to meet the Realtor at the new house to take measurements, decide who got which room, and so I could see it for the first time.

FairOaks - the house that will become home next month, Lord willing.

The back view of the house.

The barn. I tried exploring, but didn't get far, it wasn't the right kind of place for walking around in flip flops...

Jenny's parents and the Realtor, Cecile on the front walkway.

The children on the porch steps.

The front porch.

Pocket doors between the two living rooms.

The beautiful kitchen - I know I'll enjoy working in here:-)

This picture doesn't show it, but the kitchen was so nice and bright. I love lots of big windows.

Cool little drawers under the kitchen cabinets.

Almost every room has a fire place.

I like the mirror over this fireplace.

The stairs.

Looking down over the railing.

One of the bedrooms - I forget which one.

Another pretty window.

The upstairs hall. The doorway you can barely see to the right opens into what will be the schoolroom, the middle one will be mine, and the left - the boys.

My room - the door leads out onto the balcony.

The fireplace in my room. The house I spent most of my growing up years in, up in Culpeper County, VA was built in the 1800s and the bedroom Becky and I shared had a fireplace as well. It was always fun to decorate the mantelpiece.

Another view of the room that will be mine - the reason I'm including pictures of different angles is that I've asked a couple friends for advice on what I want to do with it.

The balcony that opens off my room. For some reason this is making me think of the story of Romeo and Juliet - there's your random thought of the day:-)
The view from the balcony.

The huge old oak in the back yard.

  1. I think the room with S and the children standing inside of that you couldn't remember which bedroom it was is the school room. :)

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
