Killion House 2.0

Well, we’re trying to settle in at the Killion house, but we’re having a few setbacks.  Mostly we’re realizing that we may have sold a bit too much in our auction last year.  We went on a few big shopping trips right after we arrived… but since my license hasn’t come through yet we’re a little hesitant to go on any more shopping sprees.

Of course when we arrived we had to buy plates, silverware, cups, bowls, and other kitchen things; sheets, pillows, comforters, and other bedroom things; towels, washcloths and a few other bathroom things.  Now we’re at the point where we want more of the “creature comforts…”

Want to make your favorite black beans & rice?  We have to go buy cumin and spices.

W wants biscuits?  We need to buy a rubber spatula and a baking sheet.

Want to paint over the white spackle marks on the walls?  We’ll need to go buy a paintbrush.

It goes on and on…  I started making a batch of lemonade the other day and realized we don’t have a pitcher large enough to hold 2 quarts.  I had to pour it into a pyrex bowl and store it in the fridge that way.  I’m not even sure my measurements were correct since I don’t have any liquid measuring cups : )

When we were living in the Hideaway cabin I felt like the only thing I missed… the only item that I wished we hadn’t sold was our ice tea maker.


That’s all I wanted to buy.  Of course now I can run down to the Target that’s 5 minutes away and pick it up for $20… but I don’t want to fill up all of our cabinets, drawers, and closets just yet.

Part of me LOVES that we have no extra “stuff.”  I don’t feel wasteful… I feel grateful that everything we do have is something that I love and specifically wanted to keep.  And the house sure feels bigger than I ever remember it being.
