A bit of our living room.
I'm beginning to recover from the post funeral malaise and am ready to blog again. It took me a tad longer than I had anticipated, but I guess that shouldn't be a surprise. We're reminded of my Charles' dad each day when we gaze at the greenery leftover from one of the bouquets we purchased for the funeral. It's pretty in its own right, but it was gorgeous when it was a backdrop to two dozen yellow roses.
My Charles and I are staying busy. I finally finished painting the new wall in my office. I find painting rather therapeutic, so it gave me some very needed Zen time. I opted to use the last of the gray paint left by the previous owners to paint my office. I still need to pick up some glossy white for the trim and built-ins I have yet to build as well as a light silver for the ceiling for a wee bit of sheen. We've been waiting for a dry, clear day to pick up the subflooring so we can (finally!) begin to install the floor.
Now we get to some new news since the stuff about my office has been months in the making -- my Charles and I will be working on two houses, ours and the one that he and his brother inherited from his dad. We need to get the Concord House (their dad's house) cleaned, painted, and maybe slightly updated for selling. This is more of a monumental task than it sounds as my Charles's dad was a -ahem- collector. We've spent hours removing radio controlled planes, and we still have to do magazines, old bills, and decades of other types of acquiring. I'm not going to post pictures of how the Concord House looks currently. There are plenty of shows specifically about overwhelming amounts of stuff. Instead, I'll take photos after we've gotten it cleaned but before we do any other work, and you guys can follow us on the journey of making our house a home and making that house ready for a first-time home buyer. It should be a long, hard ride, but it should be an interesting one. Are you ready?
A blog about writing, art, projects, or whatever else tickles my fancy.
