The Catch-Up Post


Fall at the Nobel House
The last couple of months have been very busy for our family.  My husband and I are "empty-nesters" now, after bundling our youngest off to college in September!  It is a strange feeling for us, sometimes exhilarating and restful, but at other times lonely and full of worries (most of them thankfully unfounded).  

It is exciting to observe your children take those first faltering, yet eager steps toward independent adulthood.  And a little odd to be taking our own first faltering, yet eager steps toward being the parents of young adults.  Mixed in with all of this personal change, we have found the time here and there to continue working on our little cabin.

So, this is a catch-up post covering the last two months.  I am going to share photos of our front porch project, which is in the final stages, and various other projects that have filled our weekends.

We enjoyed discovering the plants and flowers in our yard.  We also put in a planting bed behind the cabin for a small kitchen garden next summer.


 








We decided to use our "hidden walkway" to build a circular plantar around this tree.

We have so many fun times planned with friends and family; I am looking forward to it all!
