Update on Rozzie

It's been a week! I am finally sitting on the couch after this morning's Race for the Cure, and I don't plan on moving all day. {Plus I have a Gamecock banner I really need to finish. I think we're like 6 games in... oy.} We were at the beach with my family last weekend and ever since we returned it's been nonstop. I'm so thankful for time to rest.

Yesterday we went over to Rozzie as the Inspector was looking around. We hadn't been to the home since early July so it was great to finally be inside. Some rooms were smaller than I remember and other things surprised me like how much work the builder put in the details. We're hoping for a good report from the Inspector on Monday.

 This is a picture from the far side of the great room. I love the kitchen except I'm not crazy about those sconces on the bar. Oh well. The least of my worries at this point, though.

This is the view from the kitchen/great room. In some ways I feel like we overlook a countryside. But don't let that fool you. Our neighborhood is very rough around the edges. It will be quite a transition as we leave our beloved Myers Park. But we're excited to see how the Lord will use us in Biddleville. Plus we have lots of friends in the 'hood and have already been invited to a neighborhood block party in a couple weeks.

Rozzie is not a done deal yet. We keep reminding ourselves of that. But it sure was good to be there yesterday. I hosted Cocktail Club at our apartment last night and realized that this might be the last time my home is mostly decorated for a very long time. We will have to buy so many things for Rozzie {rugs, beds, side tables, couches, the list goes on} but have to start with the basics like blinds, shower rods, and all that. So it will be a while. But that's ok. I'd much rather decorate with patience and buy things we love than quickly put it all together.

Now about that Gamecock banner...

Glad you are sitting down and resting! Take care of that husband of yours.
