The apples in the garden of Eden
The apple trees are starting to blossom, and they're gorgeous!
I have so, so many stories to tell about the new house. I have a new kitchen, and the start of a garden, and some chickens, and just so much wonderful that's it's hard to remember where to begin.
So, I will start with a story.
This house was built in 1952. That's all I knew, going into it -- that it was built in 1952, that it used to be a dairy farm, and that there's a silo.
This is a wonderful house. It has four bedrooms, a great, funky basement, and a kitchen that has not been updated since 1952.
This is the "before" picture of the kitchen!
Much of it was renovated about 20 years ago, and it has a new roof, new carpet and paint, an unfinished basement that's huge and that has sliding glass doors that go outside.
So now I'm getting completely paranoid about people stealing apples in the future from trees that currently just have a blossom on them.
I have changed the names of all of my neighbors. Because they're already mad at each other, and this is a two-degrees-of-separation kind of place, and I don't want enemies this soon.
