We are almost completely settled in. Our outdoor furniture finally arrived. In boxes. Warren spent 2 days putting it all together. Our screened in porch has now become our favorite room, and where we spend a lot of our time...
Here in NC, the porch is an extension of your living space, because the weather is temperate, and mild. I now find Warren out on the porch eating, reading, or relaxing. Something he never did in Roswell unless he was forced to. The porch really is divine. Warren, also, got a grill for the unscreened porch that is connected to our gas line from our fireplace. No more running out of propane while grilling. We have a very nice table, and 6 chairs. Pictures of our other porch will be in another post.
And here is our living room with all the wonderful light flooding the room. I just threw these pictures in because I liked the light.
I have been painting more furniture...my armoire, and a clock. Both were dark wood, which did not go well with our light colored furniture in our bedroom. So I painted them...rather brightly, just like I did the table on our porch.

And here is the clock with a photo of Warren and I taken a long time ago...
Maggie spends much of her time gazing out our bedroom window, making sounds that sound like a machine gun when she sees some critter out there. I know she'd like to be outside trying out her hunting skills, but we are more afraid that she will soon become the hunted. She is strictly an indoor cat now, but is a keen observer...

I've been trying to take photos of all the critters that visit outside our bedroom window. The one that is the most annoying is a gray squirrel. He robs the birdseed from my feeder. And he eats my bird feeder roof.
|But he's not innocent...he's guilty...caught in the act...|
Recently, a chipmunk showed up... I think it's pretty cute.
And of course, the many birds...
|This is a woodpecker...there are some beautiful red-headed ones I have yet to get a photo of...|
