And here we are

We are spending our first night in the house tonight! We left a little later than planned because Jessie Cat chose to disappear and we didn't want to leave without seeing her. She does this every so often---she disappears in the morning and finds a hidey hole to take a nap. CATS.

So we drove over to Lincoln City, a town about twenty minutes south of here that has all manner of stores. We bought a new bed and it will be delivered tomorrow early afternoon! Tonight we'll be 'glamping' on futons, maybe on a frame, maybe not, we'll see.

It was quite foggy in Lincoln City but once we got the house we were greeted with this:

Yep, that's the view from our window with the trees cut down. This is a haystack rock and I learned today it has a name--Chief Kiwanda's rock. There is a cape right by this rock (that we can't see---yet_ called Cape Kiwanda.

We stopped by the grocery store and Tim made omelets so we had our first cooked meal. I did a load of towels (and guess what--you need to TURN ON THE WATER to get the washing machine to work) and put stuff away. Tim started putting together the futon sofa/bed.

Our stove builder, Uwe, came by to show us how to work the stove. And this magic happened:

Just a little fire, no wood just paper, but we could arguably have one since right now it is 60 degrees and the low is headed to be 50.

Plans for the rest of the day: sauna.

We are so happy. Thanks for always being happy for us!

We are happy for you!!! That view is jaw dropping beautiful! What a great decision to open up the woods with selective cutting! Great 'fireplace'!

Nice view - I'm glad you were able to purchase the land and clear out some trees.

Gorgeous view! Let us know when you're ready for guests. I could easily spend some time sitting in front of the fire knitting and watching the water view. :)
