Much has happened in the past three months, both personally and business wise. I moved from Jacumba to Santee, CA in October. I bought my own place - a double wide mobile home in a 55+ park. It's an older home, but has lots of upgrades and most importantly, I believe it is the home God has provided for me. I feel safe and am content here.
There is a wonderful deck that goes along the side and back of the house with sliding glass doors in both bedrooms giving easy access. This is the picture before I moved in. I have since added pebble gravel in between all the pavers and hung hummingbird feeders along the edge of the deck top. The previous owner left all the plants you see in this picture - so nice of her!
I moved in with high expectations of having everything organized within a few weeks. I'm still living with piles of stuff, especially in my spare bedroom which is in the process of being transformed into my business/art/jewelry studio. You can see a glimpse of the sliding glass doors midway down the deck. I sit each morning looking out those patio doors while I'm visiting with friends on facebook and reading e-mail. Every once in a while, hummingbirds will stop by for a drink. I've yet to capture them in a picture, but I'm sure I will when Spring arrives.
The blue home behind mine is where Lenore lives. She has become a wonderful friend who welcomed me into the neighborhood and invited me to go with her to attend the clubhouse breakfasts, soup lunches, potlucks, and clubhouse events. Here's a picture of the clubhouse and pool area. I haven't tested out the waters yet - perhaps when it becomes a bit warmer.
Enough for this morning. I'll share more in Part II. Thanks for stopping by and sharing time with me.
