Our friend Jim Lewis has been staying with us for the last few weeks while he closed on his house and bought furniture and things he would be needing. Now he’s all moved in and this big old place of our seems a little empty. Some people said they couldn’t handle having company for that […]

By shopping at used furniture and consignment stores, and on Craigslist, we were able to completely furnish our new home quicker than we thought, and considerably under the budget we had set. The only things we still were not happy with were the refrigerator and the electric range that came with the place. Both had […]

We will begin moving into our new home on Friday, and in the meantime we are keeping ourselves busy to help the time go faster. On Saturday we drove to the small town of De Land, about half an hour from here, to visit a couple of used furniture stores. We have already been making […]
