House Update

Folks have asked about how the house is coming along. Here’s an update.

Rebecca has been growing many good things in the garden! Peas, Lettuce, Tomatoes (including the historically important Santa Clara Canner,


Rebecca is very glad to have the piano tuned and in the music room. She enjoys playing, We enjoy singing together, and Steven enjoys hearing Rebecca play.

The red couch came from the Salvation Army store as did the small table.

We’re starting to unpack the china into the hutch by the piano.

Wall Decorations

We are starting to put up some wall decorations.


Rebecca set up our filing cabinet for organizing everything…

Steven is setting up his part of the office (with plenty of screen real estate..)


Our sectional sofa and new rug, re-installed speakers and books.. this picture is from earlier in the month, we now have most of the books catalogued. Edit: More about the speakers/video at the Tech Blog

That’s your update for now… more later!

    I will always remember your playing the piano when we visited RHC last year. You are blessed with such musical talent, Rebecca.

    And I love the photo of you two that you put up for your wall decor.

    Very pretty home!

    Your home looks so pretty. Your garden seems to be doing quite well. A nasty little bunny got into my garden and ate up nearly all of my green bean plants. I replanted everything this past weekend, and my husband worked on securing the fence so Mr. Rabbit can’t return.
    Thanks for sharing photos of your home. May you have many happy wonderful years there with lots of good memories.

    Looks great guys! I loved setting up our home when we first got married… but complete redoing your 1st home, sounds like so much fun!

    There is something about that photo of you two that you framed for the wall that just brings joy to the heart! You both have such uncontained happiness and it shows!

    And good score on the sofa and table from the thrift store!

    How Lovely!

    Think you have enough screens there Steven? Perhaps just one more would be enough? or how about two? :-D

    I agree with Melody, you clearly are suffering from a lack of screens. You should rectify this immediately. :)
