New house, new scenes

I’m so resistant to change. I really don’t like it. It takes me forever to accept it and even longer to recognize it’s a good thing. We’ve been in our new house for just about 2 months now and I still resist calling it home.

To help move things along in my obstinate mind, I thought I’d share some of the sights we enjoy.

These are the rocks in our yard. When we first moved in, they were half-burried in a corner of the yard, all on top of each other. Since they weigh more than a small car, we had to get a huge machine to move them and, in a spurt of originality, we arranged them in a sort of circle. We now call it the Mini-Stonehenge.

For some reason our grass has turned white. You might not be able to really tell in this picture but trust me…it’s white. Bizarre but there you have it.


We also have these happy little mushrooms in our yard and a not-so-happy nest of wasps that I hope our doggies stay away from. My husband ‘discovered’ it by accident while mowing the lawn and was bitten 8 times before he could make it into the house. Eight times. I’m thinking guard dogs are overrated. The thing would be to have guard-wasps. Now there’s a deterrent to unwanted visitors!


So, what do you think? Exciting new digs?

  1. Hmm, I remember moving. When I was 18, I’d moved 18 times. Different countries, different cities (or not, in many cases where it was just a village in the middle of the jungle), different schools, different homes. So you could say I was an adept at moving and adjusting, and didn’t really mind at all. I had some great experiences because of all that moving. Since then, thankfully, the average has dropped back to acceptable levels – in fact, I’ve lived in the same place for about 15 years now. And I really don’t miss moving one bit, so… I hear ya! 🙂

    • 18 times!! Yikes! It’s hard to move around when you’re young. It certainly was for me. We too moved countries and had to learn new cultures and languages. The great result is I speak 3 languages now…but it was hard to lose friends so often as a kid.
      As an adult, I like to plant roots now and stick to one place. Maybe because I too moved so often.

What do you think?
