Home Sweet Home

Yesterday  hd and I were talking and we decided it was time to build our house in the Islands near the beach. This  would be our first big project together and I am super excited and thrilled and hope he we would agree on everything.  We look on Houzz web site and saw lots of beautiful homes and fell in love with two of them.  We want to build a little guest cottage first,  before we get started on our family home, in this way we will have extra money coming in and also we could be hands on for the next project. This little cottage is one of  many homes we saw, it reminds me of the houses I grew up around.  Nothing to big but livable, inviting and able to clean in a second.  At the end of the year I will be heading down to get things started. 

Leaving Barbados thirty years ago and coming here I never thought I would ever miss home because everything here are so exciting and I love it.  But I think its time for me to relax and I want to do it the Island way, I miss the beaches the breeze and mostly having a garden. Whenever I go home I stay with my mom and it is really great seeing and being with my family for that short time we have together, however I don’t like moving that much or talking and all this running around or even going over to they house I just like to stay put, you would think people in the island would be lay back.  I don’t know where they are going because the place is not big but I do get they mean well and I love them for that. By the time I get back to New York I’m more tired then before. So having a place of my own will make me a little more settled and give me a little more time to hide out and have a cocktail before letting anyone know I am in the land. God is good.
