New House, Old Fashioned Amenities

Hey-oh! No, I’m not back entirely yet, but I am beginning to live in hope again. I have surgery on Friday to remove one of the screws in my ankle (a long, nasty one). After that, I’ll be able gradually to start bearing weight on my ankle and getting my life back.

To celebrate my impending recovery, I’m sharing a few photos of the house-that-has-not-yet-been-named-because-five-adults-and-three-children-can-never-really-agree-on-anything.

(NB: I could put up picture of bedrooms and bathrooms, but who wants to see that? Instead, these feature some of my favorite old fashioned, family-friendly amenities.)

Keep me in your prayers as I bring my long convalescence to a close this weekend. The next time I post here, I hope to be walking again!
