Beginning to Feel Like a Home

Saturday, August 7th – Yet more unpacking, Kent assessed things around the house. He took Steph on a tour and showed her about the water and well, the breakers, etc. We went to town to shop for mowers and parts. Came home and Kent got to work fixing the toilet and changing locksets on the doors. More Amish visitors (Michael’s son, Joseph, and younger brother) stopped their buggy out front and got out to visit. Said we could come down to the house if we wanted zucchini. A little bit later there was a knock on the door and they delivered two zucchini to us. We had a simple dinner of leftover chicken and pasta with veggies and fresh sweet corn. Afterwards, Stephanie baked zucchini bread while Kent explored the property some more and I sat on the front porch reading my Bible while the sun set. Enjoyed the activities of bats and fireflies again this evening. We went to bed around 9:30 to the smell of Steph’s bread baking.

This is as far as we got with the antique sofa and the sofa bed that won't be able to fit upstairs to the sitting room. But it still feels like a large room.

We now can eat meals at the table and still visit with whoever is taking a turn at cooking

The picture is blurry, I know, but it helps to put things in perspective. I love this kitchen, it's large and light and easy to work in.

I was instantly smitten with these drawers. They were just right for holding pots, pans, bakeware and lids!

Here's looking from the pantry toward the living room door. It's a very spacious room.

And to really give it that homey touch, Steph set to baking zucchini bread from that fresh zucchini the neighbors brought over.

Another triumph, my dear!
