New Beginnings

As most of you know, we bought a house here in Tennessee.  We rented for years, thinking we might move out of state, but as long as our grandson is here, we're stuck like glue.  :)  I wanted to post these pictures long before now, but I've only just discovered the cord to download them to the computer.  I assumed it was lost, and never took the time to look at the end of the one in the camera bag.  I'm a dunce...what can I say.

Anyhow...Kelly took these pictures while we were in the process of buying.  Since then, all the beautiful shade trees along the driveway have been cut back to nothing, the flowering plant in the front has been trimmed, we've had a two-car carport installed at the end of the long driveway, and we've actually moved in, settled, and love it.  We still have a laundry list of things to do but those will happen when money accumulates again.  We've sort of run through what we had, but thank God for blessings that we could manage to buy a home for a payment only fifty dollars more than our rent on a small condo.  Life is good, now maybe I can get back to writing.

Hope you enjoy my husband's photography...and his new barn.

Of course, what is a country home without a wild turkey or two?

The barn is a long way from the house:

Gotta love that wrap-around deck.  It should be great for BBQs come spring.

The next one is taken from the end of the drive, and the front of the house.
and...finally, this is the entrance into the basement and the workshop Kelly is calling home these days.  It's already a cluttered mess.  *lol*

I love the pictures. Your house and all the trees look great! Tennessee is a beautiful place to live. Found the people really friendly when I've been there visiting. :)

This is lovely, Ginger. I am so glad that you and Kelly have found somewhere to hunker down, shut out the world and let your Muse develop. Now you have to get your health sorted out and everything will be perfect.
