(Just kidding!  We aren't experts!  Just DIY network junkies and thrift store frequenters.)  Now that I have the Christmas pictures up in an organized fashion, I feel that there's one important point to make about them.  We had just moved in when those pictures were taken, and as a result, had almost no furniture!  It's been three months (omg time flies!) since Clayton's mother and I took those pictures.  Now, we have put our books on the shelves, bought some couches and coffee tables and sundry other things which have really made this formerly large, empty room quite cozy.  There are just a few more things I want to do to the living room, and then I will declare it done!  So within a few weeks, I'll be posting pictures of the downstairs rooms.  The kitchen is pretty well done for now, so some pictures of it might appear a little sooner.  

The weather here has been getting warm.  In the long term I'm worried, because I still keenly remember getting terribly heat sick in the climes of South Carolina, and I can't imagine North Carolina will be much better.  However, I put myself in the best position possible to gradually acclimate, by moving down here during December.  So hopefully I'll be quite used to the climate down here by the time it really starts getting hot.  Short of that, my house is air conditioned.   In the short term, though, I'm excited by the idea that I can start planting a garden long before I normally could in New York.  We're thinking of doing some vegetables in the backyard and some flowers and decorative plants in the front yard.  If our gardens end up looking pretty respectable, I'll be sure to post some pictures of them, as well.  That's all for now.  Thanks for popping in.
