It's hard to believe that we are creeping up on our 2 month mark that we have been in our new home. We are still settling in, meeting new neighbors, and getting used to new commute times and routes. I sympathize greatly with M's posting about the lawn. Our lawn was seeded a couple of weeks ago and we are just beginning to see new growth germinating. Time will only tell if we'll get enough coverage to block out the rocky ground beneath. We had a rock hound come through but there's still a huge amount of rock imbedded in the ground. I planted some flowers in front of the house, just praying they'll transplant well and not get the rock choke out.
There are now 12 homes going up at different stages in the neighborhood. So far, all the different models and elevations are blending in with one another beautifully. There's one more Verona that we can see going up...yay, we are not alone. The home going up in front of us is Courtland Gate. They are usually huge, it'll be quite entertaining to say the least watching them put it up.
We have a water overflow pond beside our house. The view is quite lovely and now we have a family of geese occupying it. They are so cute (6 babies). Somehow, I'll try to get a bit closer to get a shot of the babies. They follow mother goose foot to foot and mama is no joke, she'll beat you down if you get to close (I witnessed a goose beat down on Friday...not pretty).
We had our ceiling fans and other light fixtures installed yesterday. We went back and forth on whether to put a ceiling fan or not in the morning room. We finally opted for the chandelier. Everything turned out nicely. Happy building.
