Today Peter and I went to several used and reclaimed furniture stores. Once we have a little more money I think we will be able to put together an eclectic but very nice set of furniture. I'm looking forward to buying more quality pieces. When we moved back to Portland we weren't able to keep all the furniture we had in Chicago. So, we are in the process of replacing several key pieces to hold all of our niknaks that we have collected over the years and mean a great deal to us. To see those thing desplayed again we be wonderful. We haven't been able to do so for over two years. Also we still have a storage unit in Chicago that contains things that I'm itching to get and see again, and I'm getting very tired of paying for that unit. Anyway, today helped to get me thinking about this new chapter of our lives. This whole process has been very long and trying but the tunnel is getting brighter every day. I feeling much more comfortable.
In a couple more weeks we are planning on getting the paint for our house. It is needing a paint job in a very huge way. I'm very excited to up the curb appeal of our house. I hope we will be able to get this done before the winter rain comes. If not we will have to play it by ear. After the house is painted we are going to get the roof replaced. It is going to like a whole new house almost. Love it!
Garden update. Looks like we will be able to harvest our first ear of corn soon. If things go well it we will be able to harvest about ten ears this year. I hope they taste good. Also, I have been able to make fresh vegetable juice for the last couple of week with most of the produce coming from the garden. It has been wonderful!
