Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. Henry David Thoreau

switching gears!

It is hard to imagine 
not being here every day
smelling the raw wood,
listening to the birds cooing,
the cows mooing,
the geese calling...

Except for chosing a color 
for the front door,

the exterior is finished.

Doesn't she look dreamy 
in this picture?

I must tell you now though,

the next pictures you will see
on this house building journey
will not involve
or sawdust
or wiring
or heat ducts
or plumbing.

Today we take a little detour
on the journey,
and leave this house behind.

We are traveling
far and away...
and by God's grace
we will see our precious daughter
and precious son-in-law
and precious new grand-daughter
very soon now.

I am feeling a little weepy 
just thinking about it...
excuse me while I 
try to imagine what that gathering 
will be like!

There will be fresh baby smells,
fresh baby cooing,
and hopefully,
fresh baby sleeping...

hours and hours
of hanging out,
and talking.

God willing.

Stay tuned for pictures...

many silly pictures!

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
