Football not soccer

First thing first, YES, we have our furniture. And YES, it feels very good.  We still have a few boxes of book (30 or so of them), but this should be addressed this week-end.

So now, I have some blog-catching up to do.

Last Friday, we went to our first American Football game at Juliette’s school.

I did not quite get the rules.  Our side was in black, that I got.  And those players are ‘massive’, or is it the armour they wearing!

However, I did not expect so much actions around the game: the band, the Cheer Leaders…

I don’t know who won, we left earlier.  Juliette was not too impressed by the game and the fact that we sat on the ‘students’ side of the tribune.

Furniture is over rated

I normally like to share positive events, but at the moment I have to try extra hard.  We are still living in a very empty house, our container is somewhere in an American port, but no delivery date has been given yet.

I was hoping to give you a tour of our newly furnished home… Here what it looks like at the moment!

Our family room - crafting room – lounge - homework station

Our bedroom -  a bed, a chair, what more do we need!

Our formal dining room, and our future office – where we push minimalism to its extreme.

On the positive side, housekeeping is fast and easy.

Crafting wise. it is very closed to zero: done a bit of knitting, a bit of red work… but please, bring me my machines, I have such a nice craft room.

On the cooking side, it’s a bit better: Nectarine roulades for breakfast, Rhubarb and banana pie, Summer salad with mango, nectarine, raspberry dressing and prawns.
