Last week, I had no reviews with the crew, so I took the whole week off. I really needed the break and it was wonderful. Sometimes you just need a reset.
Last week, we attended our first even with our new homeschool group. It was the end of year party. We were fashionably late but still had a lot of fun with everyone. The kids met new people in the area and we did, too.
This is our first time in a while participating in a homeschool group. I’m really excited to participate in this one. It’s a simple group with lots of lovely people. I’m now one of the co-admin for the group and will be in charge of party planning as well as planning some fun events. I’m looking forward to joining others who are like us for some fun this year. The kids are as well.
Since we left Georgetown, several years ago now, we haven’t made any close friendships, though we’ve continued the ones we already had and repaired ones that had fallen apart. However, in moving, we had to leave our dear friends behind so I look forward to making new friends and family in this new journey of our life. I look forward to seeing where we are being led as well.
Last week, I began another new adventure. A dear friend of mine has written a book. It’s a suspenseful romance novel. I’ve taken on helping her with her new adventure. I’m editing her book and helping her design images for social media. I’m also helping her to pinpoint the best way to publish her novel. In turn, this is helping me so I’m ready when my time comes as well. I’m learning a lot and so is she! I can hardly wait to see where this adventure leads us both.
It’s finally June and this month is my birthday. I asked for two things: a file cabinet for all of these homeschool papers we have and use, and a desk for myself.
Last week, I found the file cabinet for free at a local thrift store. Someone had tossed it out into her parking lot and she assured me that if I just took it out of her way, I could have it. WIN! It’s got all of it’s drawers and works great. We’re in the process of cleaning, stripping it and refinishing it before we bring it in the house.
Over the weekend, I found a desk. It’s a beautiful Waterfall desk that had water-ring damage across it’s top. My husband has lovingly sanded it down for me until those rings are gone. He’s not fine sanding the edges, doing some mild repair work and hopefully by the weekend, my new-to-me desk will be in it’s new home underneath my bedroom window. I cannot wait to write at my beautiful desk.
I also found a gorgeous headboard for our bed. No more leaning on my wall as I type on my laptop sitting on my bed. This huge beauty is absolutely perfect. I’ve never had a nice headboard so I’m extremely excited by this. I promise to share photos as soon as I get it and my desk placed in our room. Now I need to find a new-to-me nightstand to go by my bedside!
It’s been a busy last week but I really feel peaceful and blessed. Today, on June 5th, we’re sitting at home with the windows open and the cool breeze blowing in. Our life has changed so much for the better this year. I only hope it continues as we adjust to our new life here.
