Is this THE Week??

We can only hope!  I'm going to check with the mortgage broker tomorrow and see what the plan is.  They told me 2 weeks ago it could be this week.  Well, this week is here, WE'RE READY!!!   Ha.

Our minds are going 100 different directions.  Of course, "I" want to just jump in and start decorating and planting stuff.  But we have to do some infrastructure things first.  Plumbing, electrical, foundation, then flooring, paint, and THEN we can start decorating and buying furniture.  Y'all will be here every step of the way, hopefully offering suggestions, giving us ideas, and voting on decisions.  We want this to be interactive.

Oh, and by the way, we say "y'all" here in the South, it means "you all".  And yes, I know it's not grammatically correct, but it's a Southern thing, you'd just have to live here to understand.

I know everyone is wanting some more pics of the house, and I fully intend to share all, starting after the closing.  That will begin Phase 2 of the journey from city to country.  Until then though, here's a tease....

Rear corner of farmhouse




OK, I told you it was a tease!
This is the rear corner of the side of the house!



By the way, we have great plans for that area back there, it's on the back side of the house, toward the rear fence line of the property.  We're leaning toward a garden soaking tub tucked into that group of trees, and maybe an outdoor shower.  But more on that in a future post....

So everyone send good thoughts our way this week, hopefully by this time NEXT Sunday, we'll own a little farm in the country!

"Anonymous" - By the mitt'n I assume you mean Michigan? The Mitten State? That's awfully far North, but we might make our way up there someday.... :-)
