We have an arrangement with a lovely Dartmouth professor & local pastor to rent a home he owns at a discounted rate in exchange for doing our best to get & keep it in good shape. If anyone is interested, click on the link below for an album with some before (taken before we moved in in August) & after (taken the week before Thanksgiving) pictures:
A VERY BIG thank you to my mom who helped me with all of the painting as well as some cleaning, and to Alasdair who did all the bathroom upgrades himself. Oh, and to my Grammy T. for the rug in the living room.
We still have more to do...I'm trying to get motivated to paint trim & sand down the window frames... we are hoping that "operation mousetrap" will take out the very noisy mice who seem to have taken over the attic!... we need to cover the windows for winter....maybe some more furniture & decorating..... but it's nice to have the biggest things settled!
We love being in a place that is so conducive to being outdoors. The cats are in heaven roaming the fields & climbing trees, Alasdair & I love walking on the trails & running on the dirt road, and Emily is always asking to play outside.
