One day left to get our act together!
(Some of us have our priorities straight - never too busy to stop for a pomogranite!)
What that means is:
The yard needs to be cleaned up of scrap wood and trash,
Winter clothes pulled out for Winter wearing,
Things packed up for the trip back to Colorado,
Direct vent heater installed,
Tools put away,
Upstairs cleaned up and prepared for our arrival back next Spring.
and much, MUCH more! (TOO MUCH!)
One thing I'd like to do is name our place.
Being a romantic, I want to refer to our beloved cabin in the woods as something other than "our Idaho place"
Not that there's anything wrong with that... if you are the kind of person who likes to live in a "place".
I've lived lots of "places" lately and I like the ring of anything that sounds warm and homey.
We have some ideas but nothing concrete yet. Want to offer some input?
You've seen pictures in previous posts. One theme that pops up quite a bit is hill, as we are living on a hill here. Have I showed you any pictures of the children flying down this hill full tilt on their wheels?
Scooters, tricycles, dump trucks, wagon... ALL have been seen ripping down this hill.
In fact Clayton told me just today that he was traveling at speeds "1000 miles per hour" or more!
That is just WOW!
Here's some of our ideas:
Hovel Hill (this is AJ's contribution, but it does not have that "warm homey" ring I am looking for!)
Still Hill (not that kind of still!)
Sweet Rest Cabin
I'll tell ya if there are more that come to mind, but this list should give you an idea.
This place feels like rest to me. It is so quiet! (when the children aren't screaming down the hill at 1000 mph, that is)
It is beautiful beautiful home. So sweet, so lovely, daily I breath a sigh of contentment.
The children laugh.
They play all day out of doors daring to show their faces only in quest for food!
The landscape is an explosion of color half the year, and a silent and serene white for the rest of it.
My husband is at home with us. We work all day, then fall asleep sitting upright in front of the fire. We are worn out from trecking up and down the stairs, the hill. From dreaming. From just enjoying today!
Contentment. blissful contentment.
The Lord's gracious gift to our family!
So help me out here;
What is YOUR vote, and if you don't like MY ideas, please leave a comment with an orriginal!
I look forward to your input:-)
