Fiddler’s Green

Roughly three weeks, I know I know I know! I have actually gotten messages about not posting, the Therapist Fiancé has been asking me if I am going to. Honestly I have a very good excuse though! We not only bought a house and moved in, but we have even gotten the place half decorated. So yes it has been a busy couple weeks for me, not a whole lot of loafing about. There are several songs about Fiddler’s Green, a heaven for sailors with no bad weather, good food, etc. However I must say true heaven for a sailor is having a home of their own to return to. It is a warm living room to sit on the couch in and rub the dogs ears. It is a porch with a big back yard to toss the ball to the dog in. It is that perfect kitchen to cook and entertain in….and feed the dog scraps in.
Needless to say the dog is happy! We all are for that matter, the Therapist Fiancé and myself are still pinching ourselves and asking if this beautiful little home is really ours. We finally have a place for all our stuff, and closet room to spare. No more RC boats in the kitchen or vacuum sealing everything in the basement for fear of flooding. The fun we have had decorating and making the place our own has been unlike anything else. Pictures, little odds and ends, and I finally got to build a real kayak rack in the backyard! The Therapist Fiancé is over the moon about our massive master bedroom and its closets. I love them too, it is nice to not have to walk to a separate room to go to me dresser.
It isn’t just the house itself that has us so happy, we are also in a pretty great location. We are finally back on Cape Cod near most of our families, and most of the places we go to have fun. Trips to Main Street Hyannis for pictures for the house, kayaking at Scorton creek, walks on the canal with the puppy dog. Everything is a short drive and when I am gone to work there is always family near by. The house and the town just feel like home.
So yes I have been busy! Over the next week I will be working to get a couple more posts together and catch up a bit. Here are a couple pictures of our very own Fiddlers Green.

    Congratulations on the nice, new digs. The pup will have that territory staked out in no time. Overdue, but congrats on the HOS move. And thanks for your blog and pics. Good stuff. Texaco.
