Happy New Year!

We can finally say we are settled in our new home after two and half months. Wow I feel like I've been through a whirlwind. This has been the hardest move on me physically, more than I ever expected. We sorted, packed and moved 26 years of stuff, on top of that spent time looking for a new home all in less than 30 days! I can tell you it really took a toll on both my husband and me. Very glad all the hard work is done and we have free time to get to know our neighbors and surroundings.

We have had so much fun exploring the areas around us. Our house is about one minute from Tellico Lake, which is great for me as a kayaker. I love the water! Shopping is within 20 to 30 minutes away. Turkey Creek Mall with many great stores including a Super Walmart, Super Target a fabulous Amish furniture shop, and one of my favorites Fresh Market (similar to Whole Foods). There's also an Amish Farm Market about a thirty minute drive from us that is huge, but not open until early spring. I'm looking forward to heading there.

My next excursion will be with my camera, there is lots of beautiful scenery and wildlife surrounding our home. I mainly take photos for painting. Right now I'm working on a painting project for a close friend, painting scenes on driftwood. It's a tricky project but fun. So I'm looking at being busy with this project for at least three months.

The other morning we had some special guests for breakfast! They really enjoyed the food! LOL

Thanks for all your support and hopefully I'll have some additional photos to post for you of the area.
