I Owe My Soul to the Company Store


Most of you are much too young to understand what the title of this post is referencing.  🙂  I may not owe my soul to the Company Store, but before it’s done, I’ll owe it to Home Depot!  hee hee!

Being a new homeowner has had So Many Joys!  I love my little nest.  ❤  (The picture above IS of my cute little house, although the grass has started to come back and is greening up nicely.  This was the Realtor.com picture.)  I had no idea how Handy I would become, working around the house!  I’ve always considered myself self-sufficient, but I am learning things that I never knew that I would need to know!

The American Dream


I have once again achieved the American Dream.  I closed on the house yesterday!  So after signing my life away, I am now in debt up to my eyeballs!  A true American dream!  🙂

I have been a very busy girl lately.  So please forgive my absence.  Things are progressing along.  I’m headed to the house this evening to take some measurements.  There is still a LOT to do before I move.  But I am just thrilled!

Yesterday morning, bright and early, I was at City Hall, waiting for the doors to open so I could get my water account set up with the city of Burleson.  While waiting, I had a few minutes to explore the immediate area.  The beautiful clock in the picture above is in “Old Town” Burleson, TX and immediately reminded me of my dear friend Audrey and her wonderful blog Minnesota Prairie Roots and photographs that you can find HERE.  She takes amazing pictures of small-town life and recently took a picture of an old clock similar to the one in the picture above.  Be sure to take a few minutes to visit her blog.  You won’t be disappointed!

I could have taken a picture of the stacks of boxes that I’ve packed or the over-grown lawn at the new place, but I thought you would appreciate the clock picture a lot more.  I will keep you posted as to my progress on the house as I can.

Thanks for being along for the journey!  Penny ❤
