Happy New Year Everyone!
2016 here we are!
We have had some rainy days here on the coast (they say December is the rainiest!) ....RAIN...and THEN.....Sunshine! and Wow....Nick & I head for the beach again...nice!
The weather thus far has been very mild...around 40-50F degrees here! That has been fine with us! No complaints!
We enjoy the beach which is just a 15 min walk from our house...because we have to walk along the Lake that borders our property to get to the beach!
Yes ....that is where you will find Ellen & Nick!
It's is a lovely walk from our house...walking down a very pretty street!
It seems Nick & I are always looking for drift wood...interesting looking pieces! Nick is collecting smaller pieces too because he wants to use them to make birdhouses! A little business on the "side?"
We enjoy looking for agates that are washed up onto the beach "Agate Beach" ..they are translucent!
Improvements at the House.....
So' very happy with the kitchen....love the brightness!
Nick did a good job...my "handy" man!
|Read what Nick wrote....ha!|
It is a Joy to wake up in the morning and look out onto Garrison Lake...what a treat it is! We watch people fishing & kayaking, paddle boarding....we hope to pick up some kayak's soon and join them!
The dining area cabinets is our next project that needs to be painted...step by step! It's on the "honeydolist!
We will add some cabinets on the top & book shelves!
Looking out to the front of the house-
|This Spring, Nick will start on the deck!|
(our neighbors have chickens....fresh eggs anyone?)
|Hallway to bedrooms & front door-|
We are excited to see what the Lord has planned for us this coming New Year...here on the coast of Oregon!
Oh yes...this week we drove down to Brookings (60 min south) and found out we are just an hour from the Californian border!
Well "I'll be!
