Adjusting


Over the weekend, Adam got everything moved (bless him!) and we've spent the past few days getting things into their proper places.


A friend from church came over and put the kitchen together for us (words cannot express how meaningful that was) and we've got most of the major furniture in place. There are a few things on their way, and a few things that need a coat of paint, but it's coming together nicely, given how little time we've actually spent working on it.


It's always an adventure settling in to a new space - figuring out how far to turn the shower knob in order to get just the right temperature, remembering where we put things, and readjusting to life without a microwave (it's crazy how quickly you get used to the convenience of irradiated left overs...)


I found a snail living in the little patch of yard that Mum gave us, when I went to take it into the back yard. I hope we can get settled in just as quickly, and start turning this house into a home!
