Here's the dining room, which is just off the living room. My dad made the china closet when he was in college (he's an excellent carpenter!). It's just beautiful. My mother generously gave me her set of china dishes a few years ago, and I keep them in here. Thanks, Mom! A closer look:
And here's what one of my evenings looked like - sitting by the fire, listening to the radio, and reading a book.
But of course, after all that moving, I've got a ton of empty boxes I need to break down and throw in the dumpster. Maybe this weekend I'll get around to it.
Now that the house is settled, I've got to get to work on two other very important things: my health and my novel. I finished reading through my novel last night, and I think I've got my head back in the story.
On the health side of things, I'm planning to rejoin Curves since I so enjoyed it last time and I lost 30 pounds. I had to quit going when I changed jobs and it was no longer an option for working out. But now it is - so it's time to get in shape! And that not only means exercising, but eating healthy, too. I'm on the hunt for delicious recipes that are low-carb and low-fat. I've already got a few in my recipe book, but I'm always on the look out for more. And it also helps that I'm just down the road from a wonderful grocery store. :-)
