There is still so much that needs to be accomplished at the house in Hooterville within the next few weeks so we (hubby, daughter and her boyfriend who has no family in Florida, and I) have all decided to use Thanksgiving day as a work day at the property. The four of us will, however, take a break in the early evening to have our Thanksgiving dinner at a little home-style buffet restaurant a few miles down the road from the new house. Admittedly, this is quite a departure from our usual huge traditional home-cooked meal with all of the extended family present but it only took us about 5 seconds to agree we are okay with that this year. What better way is there for us to appreciate and celebrate our good fortune to be blessed with this new home and the opportunity to live what we have dreamed about?
To all my American readers, wherever and however you spend your Thanksgiving, I want to wish you and yours a bountiful and blessed Thanksgiving holiday from My Cottage of Bliss.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 43 years. We have one beautiful and precious daughter, age 33.
After more than 37 years in the workforce, I was fortunate enough to be able to quit my job in 2007 and stay home. As a natural born homebody and "nester," this opportunity to be a full-time homemaker has brought me immeasurable contentment and happiness. I thoroughly enjoy spending each and every day in the cozy comfort of "My Cottage of Bliss."
About the "House in Hooterville": In October 2009, we bought a 30 acre horse farm in a small country town approximately 45 miles from the city where I have lived my whole life. Join me, a city girl through and through, as I try to simultaneously adapt to country life in "Hooterville" and redecorate the 1978 brick ranch-style house on the property into My (new) Cottage of Bliss.
