Trying to Adjust

Do you ever have those times where you feel that life is in fast forward?  Well, I've been in one of those times.  Finally, I feel like life is slowing down, but I have to switch gears.  Sometimes we can get addicted to going fast.  Have you noticed that?  Okay, so here I am trying to slow down.  I know I really need it.  Why?  Well, I feel I really need time to connect with my new home.  In being busy I haven't really allowed that.  Lately, I've been feeling disconnected.  I keep thinking about how I felt at my Little Blue Cottage.  It felt like home, a haven from the nasty world.  So far Big Yellow Cottage doesn't feel that way for me.

My in-laws came for a visit.  They loved Big Yellow Cottage and felt immediately at home here.  I was so glad that they came, their visit helped me feel more at home here.  Having friends over has helped make it feel more homey also.  One of my girlfriends came over and she helped me decorate the "red" room in preparation for the arrival of my in-laws.  Here below are some recent pictures of the Big Yellow Cottage.

 Autumn is beginning to show its color.

 Took this one while sitting on the sofa in our living room.

 This is our master bedroom.

 This is the front entryway.

 This is the kitchen and laundry.

 The master bathroom.

And here is the "red" room.

So glad to see you blogging again. I think your new house is really nice. The red room looks very cozy.

Have you seen the pictures of my cat on my blog that looks like your cat? It's amazing.

Have a great week.
