Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Moved In!

Tuesday was move day, though we got the keys and started moving ourselves before dinner on Monday evening.  Then after dinner with friends at the Columbia lakefront we finished moving all the closets.  Movers did the heavy stuff.  It was all done by 1 pm.

Here is how it looked this morning.  Since taking these photos I've been hanging pictures.

Here's our front door which opens on our foyer.


To the left is the kitchen, dining room and living room.






To the right are the two bedrooms and two baths.


My desk is in our bedroom again.




Dan's is in the 2nd bedroom we call the multipurpose room.  There's a balcony on this side too.





A view on the kitchen again.  That refrigerator was exchanged today for a larger one, and the cabinets were installed over top it.



Here's the balcony off the living room.


We can see Wilde Lake which I love to walk around.


We can see the other wing of Vantage House.


The Columbia Mall is in the distance there.


Looking over the rail is the garden.



Lots of organizing yet to do but its feeling like home.

So happy for you both, Marcia! It won't be long until you have everything in place. I already see the tea kettle waiting! Hope you can enjoy a quiet cup of tea today, as you enjoy the magnificent views. What fun to have a gazebo in the garden! Autumn blessings in your new home! ♡Dawn@Petals.Paper.SimpleThymes
