In Contract...Yippeee!!!!!!

Yesterday our offer on the log cabin was accepted....
Hurray....and I never had to leave home. Thanks honey, for making the trips up to Wisconsin to find a new home for our family.
A nice covered porch for stitching and reading
I fell in love with the kitchen when I saw the photos. I have always wanted a gas stove top. I can't wait to do lots of canning this summer.
A pretty space for my bed....
and at the foot of it... a wood burning stove....
and lots of shelves for all of our books.
My new sewing room. How much easier it will be to find a lost needle or pin on hardwood floor. Goodbye carpet...I won't miss you!
And did I mention that there is an authentic Sioux tipi in the backyard?
It stays with the house! We are counting the days to closing and keeping our fingers crossed that all goes smoothly.

What wonderful news for you. But. . . I just discovered your blog, and I'm from NE Ohio too, so we're practically neighbors, and now you're moving. LOL. Your goats are adorable!
