Around this house

Living in this little house has been such a joy. I have been spending a lot of time at home because my employment is pretty minimum right now (not ideal, but enjoying it while I can). My favorite spot is the dining room table, probably because it is one of the only "finished" rooms in the place. My morning routine on days I don't work has been wake up, make oatmeal and coffee, and then read and stare out the window for as long as possible; it's kind of great. The house still needs some key things, but I am content with what have and learning to make due. We are looking forward to making garden boxes, getting a couch, thrifting a few more chairs, building a bench and a desk, and purchasing a few rugs.

I loved watching the rhododendron tree bloom, but I am not looking forward to picking up all the flowers off the ground.
The cottage was filled for the first time with friends to put our new grill to the test. We had pulled pork, grilled corn, watermelon, and cobbler. It was fantastic. 
I started working on the gallery wall. Our staircase is amazing and I am excited to add to this space as time goes on.
I've been devouring fresh berries and I finally put my goodwill pot to good use

I've been having way too much fun at the thrift store lately.
