New curtain for the master bathroom, from Country Curtains.
The wall color is Sherwin Williams Front Porch.
I’ve been a tad preoccupied the past few weeks. I hinted of this when my beach table post went awry.
There are a variety of seasons, including life seasons. Keeping this in mind, J and I are considering a change.
We’ve talked about it and prayed about it and talked about it some more.
It has been our plan, since we built our home in 2003, to sell within a few years. The original plan was to sell our home in 2008. One thing led to another and that did not happen.
When J had his little health issue, this past winter, it caused us to do a bit more thinking about our plan.
At present we are considering the possibility of moving to a smaller home, nearer our children. This, of course, would necessitate the sale of our present home.
This may be your first time seeing this view from the studio.
Studio is the glorified description of the bonus space above our garage. The space was originally my studio. I was still painting when we moved here.
I have painted a couple of murals in businesses around town and in a few homes. Years ago I did quite a bit of painting and belonged to an artists guild a couple of years.
Not long after moving into our home I gave up painting, due to a tad bit of arthritis in my hands.
The studio has had several seasons of life. The last one, not so pretty. It became a catchall of sorts.
With thoughts of listing our home for sale, we decided we should do something about that room above the garage.
It is a metamorphosis in progress. I’ll post more of this change soon.
Glimpse of another guest room.
We are enjoying this new adventure, so far.
We are realists and understand the possibility the house will not sell. But how will we ever know if we don’t take this giant leap of faith. If you have been reading Back Porch Musings for any length of time, you know we are optimists.
The kiddos are helping clear away this and that from the basement storage area, affectionately known as Mom’s Boutique. Our home is slowly getting into show mode. We will not consider listing until we are completely satisfied with our work.
Of course, all the work involved in preparing a home for the possibility of selling is stressful and exhausting. It seems this is especially so for “seniors”. We are determined and will continue, however, we do need afternoon naps. We would do this anyway, but during J’s last visit to his physician in May, the good doctor suggested a nap each afternoon, for both of us. I think I’ve mentioned he is my physician too. A nap is a wonderful prescription.
Hoping you will think of us often as we go through this season of change.
COZY HOME SCENES
The alive and well beach table post is lined up for publishing bright and early Tuesday.
