Here is a fun short question-short answer for all of you, one I've been looking forward to sharing! This reader asked: "What has been your favorite activity this summer?"
Well, I don't know if favorite is quite the right word since this whole business is quite a stressful one . . . but certainly the most exciting activity this summer has been this!
We started house-hunting earlier in the summer, looking for a spot a little bigger than Rooglewood and in more of a neighborhood setting (Rooglewood is located in the downtown and, though surrounded on three sides by a bamboo forest, faces a busy commercial road). This house is the perfect solution, full of character and quirk with a big back yard for Milly to run around in . . . and plenty of room for a future family should that be God's will for us.
I'm a bit sad to leave Rooglewood, I won't lie. Okay, a lot sad. Rohan and I have loved this first home of ours and made so many memories here. But after four years of marriage (not to mention twenty-plus rescue kitties and two rescue doggies later!) the time is right to move on.
The new home has been christened as well . . . it is called Drakenheath.
Why Drakenheath, you ask? Well, I grew up in Lakenheath, England, and this house is situated on a sweet, heath-like landscape. And "Draken" is, of course, in honor of my dragon-books. So next month I hope to post the very first "Doings at Drakenheath" post for all of you!
