Tonight we had 23 happy well fed people in this lovely house. P wanted to set up a quartet to sing "Brightly Beams Our Father's Mercy" on Sunday. So we arranged to have the families of the men involved over for a dinner and rehearsal. Hurray!
We're not moved in yet, but we're mostly moved in. The boxes of random things that were not getting put away are still not away, but at least they're off the table.
And thanks to many factors, we now can use our old dining table for a ping-pong table! Thanks L. The table has served us well and is continuing to be loved.

So now I've been around the block 3 times. Once by car, once via bike trailing the girls in the red stroller, and today for the first time on foot. On foot I noticed so much more and appreciated more what a wonderful neighborhood we've found ourselves in. The houses are nice and look lived in. Each house is on an acre so as an adult it feels much like my childhood neighborhood (which now seems surprisingly small).
P spent the day scraping, and painting the porch railing so we could put up a plastic mesh to keep bP from climbing out. It's fun putting work into this house.
P also picked some oranges from the tree that were way better than what I had previously picked. As I ate them, never mind the seeds, I was amazed "These came from our tree?" I asked incredulous. Yum! I'm so excited to prune it down in March so next year we'll have even better fruit and have it growing closer to the ground.
