Things are slowly but every so surely coming together in our home/castle. It’s not much, but it’s comfortable and we enjoy our time here. First up is the newest member of the family, Isabel!
She’s about 2 and a half years old. Hound mix, Schiller Hound perhaps? It’s hard for me to say. Her ears don’t match that, but the body shape pretty much seems too. She’s super friendly and is partially trained. Can’t sit or stay yet, but does know how to take a walk and comes to her name and understands no and such. So we’ve got some training to do.
Good lord I need a better camera.
Our place is starting to look more like a home. No longer are we using the camping chairs. We have Darla’s couch. Although I found the camping chairs to be much more comfortable. And thanks to Vicki, we now have a small kitchen table and chairs 🙂 I’m not a handyman, so likely will never get refinished. Looking for a 48″ round, fitted tablecloth. Can’t seem to find any around town, so searching Amazon and such.
Surprisingly that small window AC unit manages to keep this place at a decent temp. We close off the spare room during the hot months. Though next year we might get a second one to keep the first from working so hard all the time. When it’s in the high 80’s and 90’s it struggles some in the afternoon time.
The spare room needs some decorations. Such as posters. We’re preparing it for Alexis should she come visit from time to time. It’s actually hard to find Shinedown or other posters she’d like in podunk nowhere.
I keep the yard looking decent. For a desert of weeds that is. The flower garden is done by my mom. She can’t do it at her new place, so she does it here. Which is good, as I’d just throw some easy to grow crap in and let nature do the rest. Darla and I don’t really do gardens. Next year I hope to get a small gas weed eater. One thing at a time. Up next, a new snow blower. The old one my mom has works decent but it scares me.
Not sure how long we’ll be in this place, but it’s looking like we will renew the lease this winter. Going to be tough to find anything at the end of January. Best option we can hope for is to get lucky for a rent-to-own situation. Long story. No one really wants to read about that here as it would be in the form of another rant 😉
Edit: The curtains are not ours. They were left here from the previous tenant. They will get replaced at some point.
