I can has decor!

Things are coming together slowly but surely with the house. Seems most days I just take baby steps. I'll sometimes just line a couple shelves[I'm besotted with Life Liner, btw-- best shelf/drawer liner evar]or unpack one measley box, but eventually I'll get there. It feels more like home when you unbox your stuff and sort of arrange things in a pretty way. This is such a cozy little house, and it's getting better all the time. The pups are loving it, although I suspect that the abundance of pecans on the ground are largely responsible for the furry little paunch where Praline's once concave belly used to be. Chuy is blissed out, and I love seeing him so happy.

Shopping for plants on Saturday I felt a kind of bliss thinking of what I wanted to see growing and blooming around the porch, and of again being able to cook with handfuls of herbs collected from a planter out front. I bought a whole passel of herbs for the kitchen, as well as some lovely perennials I've had great success with in past. I expect in the coming days I'll be using my big bathtub to soothe some sore muscles, and it'll be a lovely reward at the end of hard hours of gardening.
More to come...

It's looking good! Small steps end up with big results when it's all said and done! Hang in there!
