Hello . . . anybody there?
I've decided to come back to this blog after almost 2 years of absence. I've still been posting on Red Letters and a little on Red Letters Theology, but I haven't had the time or the inclination to think or write about homekeeping. But things are changing.
School is over, and last June we moved from Ontario to PEI. We've spent the last year or so renting a house in Kensington, but we're about to take the giant leap of buying our very own home! We are definitely tired of renting, and we've been blessed with the finances to get a mortgage, so we're taking the plunge! Our closing date is May 28th.
Our new home is in the little village of Wheatley River. It's an older home on a third of an acre, built in 1913. It needs some work before it's livable - including a new roof, electrical upgrades, new furnaces, new porch, new bathroom. You know, minor details. Oh, and some of the wallpaper has got to go! It's a little daunting to think of how much needs to be done, but I'm excited to make it our own and make it a home.
As for other major life changes - we're having a baby! I'm due in less than a week, on May 17th. So this is definitely going to be a busy season. Stay tuned.
