Home Sweet Home...

Alright everyone here are some photos of the NEW Gettysburg Homestead!!!!! I have since moved things around already and brought out some Spring stuff. I can't leave things alone. For some of you who may be new to my blog I downsized from a huge 100 year old farmhouse to a small duplex. So everything looks crammed in because it is. LOL. I have found I have way too much stuff, but one day I will have a house again and will fill it with all my stuff.

Welcome... come on in...

As you come in this is the first thing you will see.

Alright minus the tractor you don't always see that. LOL.

I know this is as little dark sorry... this side is one of areas I have already changed.

My daughter doing what all teenagers do best..... watch TV.

Shelf close up... This is a test what is wrong with this picture.... yep one of my candles fell out of my candle holder. LOL Did you see it???

Moving on to the dining room.... yep some of this has changed too.

Like the peg rack I don't have hung yet. LOL.

This is all I have for now, but I will go back through and retake my Spring pics and my kitchen and bedroom.

Update on my nephrologist appointment... I have some type of kidney disease, but he doesn't know what kind yet until I have a biopsy of my kidney on April 10th. I also have a lot of bloodwork that I must get done to see if I have minor or major damge to the kidney. So keep praying away for me.

My friend and I went to a Serbian restaurant last weekend. It was so good. I had chicken paprikash and he had some type of sausages (don't know the proper name for them lol) but that's what they were. They didn't taste anything like regular sausage though. I can't explain the flavor to you either. Then we went to church with my parents on Sunday and went to dinner with them afterward. My friend and my Dad talked about the service and how if differed from his church. That got a bit uncomfortable. LOL. All in all though it was an awesome weekend. This weekend I have my kids with me so we are just hanging out and playing games inside since it is cold and rainy. Oh and I made my corn casserole last night per my son's request and my friend had never had it before and just loved it. Imagine that never had corn casserole.LOL.

I need to get going and finish up my laundry. As of tomorrow my hours at work get cut. Now maybe I will have some time to sew. Last weekend I unburied my sewing machine and set it up. I brought all my fabric in from the garage and finally have the desire to start sewing again. I can't wait to get started.

What a wonderful prim home you have turned your duplex into. So warm and welcoming. You know, I've lived in our house for years and we never quite get things where we want, LOL. I think your home looks wonderful. I hope and pray the doctors can figure out what kind of kidney disease you have and I pray that there is no damage. It sounds like your friend is a very good man. Have a wonderful week. It was good to hear from you and see your home. Thanks for sharing.

I am glad to see you didn't leave much behind for him.. He might have the house but it's looks like he got an empty one.

You have done a great job , and I can't wait to see you start making your prims again.

It's so great to "hear" from you :) I think you have done a wonderful job making your new house a home for you and your family! We're a little crammed in here, too but I like my stuff and so we live with it :)

I'm happy to hear that you know more about what is going on with you healthwise, sorry to hear that you have a kidney disease, though. I hope it's nothing major and is something that can be helped with medication. I'll be thinking of you!

Have a great rest of your weekend :)

HI Mary,

So nice to hear some new news...

Your home is looking great and I can't wait to see some more pics and with some Spring decorating.

I hope your tests will go good and they will finally give you all the answers that you have been looking for, for so long. I will pray that there has not been any damage done yet. I will keep you in my thoughts.

Looking forward to seeing some new items made by you. I bet you will be so excited to get that sewing machine up and running again.

Have yourself a great week :)
