Strangely I had posted a picture of my cottage before I knew I'd be posting one prior with Todd saying goodbye to Earl. The point of this one was to show that I have started my new garden here at our new address!
Well, it looks like they made it!
Can you believe how peaceful it is here? I mean, dang... can it get any better than a horse farm across the pond?!
And have I ever shared the back of my home? Well, here it is, sans the screened porch which hasn't been added yet in that hole right in the middle of the house.
Gabbi apparently had herself a little chocolate prior to this trip! And since so many of you asked about her, well, she is doing fine. I don't think she is even aware really yet that Earl is gone. Ellie heard me talk about it. She, thinking she is a teenager and all, went on to explain to Madi that Earl was in Heaven with Jesus and with Jake. She does it with such matter of factness. She is definitiely a confident little toot!
I am sure Gabbi Girl will start figuring it out soon enough. Daddy had to throw out the dog bowls she loved to play in this morning. Not cool!
These are the flowers Ellie brought me. "Awww, Mom. It's like our family! It's me, mama, daddy, and Gabbi." I'm telling you, she is wise beyond her three little years. We'll be having that adoption talk sooner rather than later.
Funny little thing. She is sunshine!
My girls were thrilled to have Pops at the house. Pops, you reading this?! You need to plan this about twice a week!!
Ellie is only holding a stick, but she doesn't know! I think I'll buy them a couple of little fishing poles this week!
yep. After all, we have a pond now. They need one!
Pretty little thing!
Our weather has been nuts! This day was PERFECT! Then, yesterday, it was back around 40 degrees. In Louisiana, that is COLD!
Gabbi cast a few times with the stick too!
I love a glimpse at the simple life. I'd like to say we lived it. Instead, I'm afraid their mama doesnt' have that luxury at this time in life. I have a busy, busy therapy business, THANKfully! But, I have my life plan, and I am heading toward it. I can't wait til I can spend more days just like this!
I do my best to spend quality time outside with the girls when at all possible. That is why some of you don't have your paintings or talismans yet. I havent' forgotten. Just have to prioritize. Hope you understand!
