Lock Down on the move ...
January 15, 2021 was an epic day for us,
as we picked up the keys for our "new to us" house!
With measuring tape and camera in hand we explored this
place we will soon call home.
A new chapter ... for the farmer and his wife.
The China Cabinet was one
of the first things emptied and packed.
It has been carefully moved from
the farm house to it's new home
by the farmer and his son-in-law.
Thank you for successfully moving
this tricky piece of furniture.
Mom would be proud!
The dining area was a bit too snug to fit in the china cabinet
but I think it will look nice here on this wall.
She's been restocked, minus a few purged pieces.
It is just so hard to know what to keep and what to edit out ...
The farm house kitchen will be hard to leave behind
but this one will be equally as functional
(even though I may need to invest in a taller step ladder to reach some of those cupboards)
My 5'2" stature will only reach a bit above the fridge - eek!
The island stools are on order but may take till April to arrive.
In fact, any new furniture and appliances are going to take months
to be on order during this pandemic back-log!
We need to be patient and just use our old stuff ...
nothing wrong with that and it's not important considering the whole scheme of things
during this trying time.
It will be so much fun shopping in store again to choose area carpets,
furniture, linens, decor items, and such.
Or, perhaps it will be realized how many things we actually don't need !?
One of our favourite things about this place is the backyard view.
|A large city retaining pond giving many opportunities for skating, bird watching, and enjoying the seasons|
Here's our absolute favourite view so far:
This will give ample time for the farm house to get a face lift before our wee
family makes their move!
We couldn't be more happy to know that our precious grandchildren will
grow up on the farm we have loved for these past 42 years!
Speaking of the lock down, our little Noa shows up cheerfully each day
for her on-line schooling.
What a change it's been for all the school children, teachers and their families!
We enjoy the instagram and text message pictures of this process ...
In the meantime, stay well, stay safe, and stay positive. We WILL get through this and roar into the 20s!
