How is life? It's only been what, three years since I took the time to write in this space. Let's hope I do it right!
I changed the title from Musings From a Three Bedroom Ranch because we no longer live in a three bedroom ranch and it was connected to another life. I don't mean to be dramatic but we rented for thirty years and finally took the very adult step and bought a house. It was kind of forced on us but honestly the best decision we ever made with the exception that we are smack dab in the middle of a neighborhood and I dreamed of being right in the middle of a few acres of land, but it's all good. We are easing into our third year as home owners and we have plans on a few upgrades this summer. For instance, a new A/C unit and tile in at least the living room and hallway and few minor changes like a new kitchen sink and faucet.
Anyway, I'm trying to familiarize myself with the new Blogger and hope I can post pictures while writing but who the heck knows so please stick with me as I work out all the kinks and relearn how to blog.
Last Saturday we went to New Orleans for the day, dropping our niece at the Amtrak station and we got robbed. Yeah we never leave the house and then we leave, plan to have a little bit of fun and some lowlife busts out the car window and steals my iPad mini and my Kindle Paperwhite. But the day was still a lot of fun. I had planned to do a quick Anne Rice tour, a bit of a Dark Hunter tour and to see Marie LaVeau's grave but, all those plans got put on the backburner after a call from NOLA PD about our car. But below are a few sights from the day and the best part is the very first pic, beignets from Café du Monde. Best café au lait in the world. I want to go back every weekend. Husband says we are cursed and no more adventures for a while. Of course he had just paid $300 to replace our rear passenger side window. He'll decide to adventure again one day. It will probably be centered around the Oakland Raiders playing somewhere nearby but there will be more adventures.
and Christian Retreats. In NOLA there's a Willie's Chicken Shack on every
So this is life at the moment. Next time, some stitching and crocheting and attempts at quilting. And hopefully more techie skilz!
