I love the east coast with all.my.heart. I want to live there FULL TIME someday. The history, old homes, the people, the four distinct seasons, everything about it makes me happy. Sometimes I wish we could push a fast forward button on life. But then again… we’d also need a pause, mute and rewind button too. You just can’t win. Can you?
I spent this past weekend there painting our dining room, visiting the farmer’s markets, and working in the garden. When we bought our house on the east coast the one thing I wanted to change right away was the bright yellow walls. Slowly but surely it’s getting done and I always think it’s amazing what a few cans of paint can do to spruce up a place.
I’ve kinda fallen into sort of a routine when I’m there.
Visit the Farmer’s Market
Scour the local thrift stores once a day
Work in the garden planting, harvesting and weeding
Pick a house project to work on
This time around I didn’t find anything super exciting at the thrift store for the house, but I did find 2 sets of bed rails to go with the bed frames I found a few months ago. The guest room is now officially finished and now the only thing I have left to find is a few more chairs for the dining room table and I am done.
Someday we are going to move there.
But for now, it’s good to be back here in Washington state. Even if I was greeted to counter full of laundry to fold this morning.
P.S. There are so few things about my life I don’t share on the blog, but the location of our east coast home is one of them. So if you know where it is, or where it might be, please refrain from mentioning it in your comments. Just know, I’d rather be there, than here in the land of snoopervising.
