Our Cottage Life


It has taken a little while for me to start to think of this new house in
Texas as home.  Each day that has gone by has made me grow more
attached to my new surroundings.  





Old treasures are finding their place.  And some new ones are filling
in the gaps.  





Each morning when I take my walk I look forward to passing by
what have now become familiar and welcoming sights.




A routine is being established.  A comfortable and satisfying routine.





One of the goals that I set for myself when we moved was to 
set aside more time for writing.  I have so many stories to tell and
now for the first time in my life I will have the time to tell them.



Bentley has goals too.  Of course his goals always include playing
with his toys and often doing his best to entice me to join him in his
games.




Like when he flings his "Tweetie" up in the air and barks at me ~
hoping I will applaud his accomplishment.  

Yes ~ life has settled into a happy routine in our new home.
It's a good feeling.



Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  2. It sounds like your new routine is immensely satisfying - and it looks like you're making your new cottage a cosy place!

  3. It will take time. I agree with Sandy. It's what is inside your home, your thing, that make it home. I haven't moved for 26 years......I know it would be so hard now to move. Bentley seems settled. Love all your pillows and bedding.

  5. So glad that you are feeling that your new house is home. Sometimes it take a little time but you are into a routine now that the boxes are unpacked - so you will have time for writing.
    Bentley seems like he likes his new home, but I bet he likes it no matter where you are just as long as you are there.
    Have a great Sunday.

  9. Susan, I think it's just wonderful that you are getting used to life in Texas already. When we moved back from Oklahoma last year it took me months to adapt. This was coming home for us but after living in one place for 23 years, I was a fish out of water. You are doing great!

  11. Susan, when one is surrounded by their pretty and sentimental belongings, wherever they are in the world, they will feel at home. For, they are not just inanimate objects, but quite conversely, they rejuvenate our memories of special moments in our lives. Your new home is filled with pieces of your personality and, as you say, newly acquired ones that will welcome you to the next chapter of home.

  15. So glad you're happy and settled in your new home. Love all your pillows, they're beautiful with their pink and the trim. Tell Bentley to drop by some time to play with Daisy, that would be nice :)

    Hugs ~ Mary
