Our First Gathering..............

When we were checking on the house earlier this week I noticed a lovely breeze on the not yet screened porch........... I then thought it would be fun to ride out there one evening after the news (Lem has to watch the news) and sit on the porch with a cool drink......... I also thought that having someone else to chat with would be good so I called the family and issued the invitation to bring a chair and join us.............

This is the group that greeted us when we arrived. Well, we did have to drive farther than they did....

Left to right is Kim, Jane, Beck, Lem and Jason.........

While we were there a neighbor came by to say hello........ She had one grandchild with her....

And was followed by another one.........


We sat and talked and got acquainted with the neighbor........ It was GRAND........

What a wonderful blessing from Our Heavenly Father........

Maybe we can do it again next week.................

Now for the ubiquitous house pictures........... The sheet rock crew is working this week....... So far they have the ceiling up and 1/2 of the walls...........

This is looking into the dining room from the family room......



And from the family room into the foyer (right) and hallway to guest room and studio (left).


And from the front door toward the family room........... The area looks larger than it really is because of the archways being so open. I wanted a place for family and friends to gather and enjoy good fellowship.



Now off to finish the house blessing and perhaps I will get a chance to sew a bit today........
