First 'Real' Dinner in our New Home ~ Little by Little, Bit by Bit!


Our table :)


Some order is finally prevailing... many more boxes but we are making
true and real progress! 


I don't know where my icons are! I remember packing them...
we have about 5 more boxes marked fragile in our
master bedroom closet... :)


I was able to find the icons that were on the window sill
of our old place...I tried to recreated this a bit
as I did love that space!


We kept the table small (the one leaf is under the table)
and so used our almost-island counter for the food...


Thankfully there is a diner near by that has really good food
for great prices and portions that equal minimum of two meals
per meal! New Jersey, as Mr. Husband says, is a 'diner state' :).

Well, we are tired but loving our new home.
*
My parents started their trip back to Michigan today....
It was such a good visit...
Everywhere I look, I see my Dad's work...
yesterday he fixed the light switches in our bathroom...
now our second light and fan works... and he hung
towel bars in the bathrooms, a hook on the door...
he spent time researching our dishwasher,
which we think we will have to replace sadly,
but Dad saved us a bill in trying to find out if it could be fixed!
*
I unpacked all our breakable dishes and glassware I think now...
we have to figure out pantry options yet for shelving,
so I can unpack all of that...
*
Lots of laughter, talks and teasing Cleo went on and lots of meals
at the local diner; it was a truly blessed time and one 
I thank God for!


Now we are praying for a safe trip home for 
my parents and that they can visit us here again
in the future!

Congratulations! Each dinner will bring you closer and closer to feeling settled - and finding everything in the boxes, right!? I know how unsettling moving is, how long it takes for things to feel right, and for the sense of upheaval to subside. Prayers for you and your new home!
