Loverly

Another day/week, another plan for the house. It’s now been a full month (and a few days) since The Great Hole in the Wall of 2016. There was the immediate stage of “OMG this WALL fell in, we have to fix it right away!!”. Then the decision that if we were going to re-do one […]

Repair Replace Renovate

Y’all . . . I’ve been feeling that I needed to update the sole reader who might be out there wondering what has been going on with our surprise hole in the wall. I honestly thought I’d recapped something by now, but . . . no, you, sole reader, have sadly been left all out […]

Wet Sand

Y’all. Yesterday was our wedding anniversary. The symbolic present for this one was “steel”, so we made a joke about replacing our shower faucet.  Being brushed steel and all. Knobby tired of me debating five different ones that I would order, so he rushed us to a big box store to make me pick out […]

Renovation Relics and Tubthumping

I told Mom the other night, that perhaps Mimi did NOT approve of my painting the doors and trim all white, and she was expressing her displeasure by striking down all these necessaries in our house. (I was only half joking.  You don’t mess with Mimi, here or in Heaven. She will take you OR […]

All I Have to Say About That.

Well. I have more bad news. In review: MasterBath plumbing bit the dust and we have to at the VERY least replace all the bath faucet whatevers, which also involves replacing the tile.   “Ok”, we said, “we need to do that anyway b/c the grout is gone and we know from the window install […]

Valium. Vicodin. Vodka.

Isn’t there a saying, about how bad things happen in threes?  Almost immediately after the entry level sedan windows were installed in our house, some parts of our main bathtub plumbing gave up the ghost.  I can only assume that they were envious that the original windows got to stop working after so many years […]

Flashlight

I’m still working on making all our varnished wood trim a bright clean crisp glorious white. Tonight I finished the first coat of alllllll the trim around the doors on the first floor hallway.  The dark navy hallway. The white frames light up that dark dark hallway like a flashlight. I LOVE IT.

Little. Gray. Birds.

Not much new to talk about. ~Still deciding what to sing next; have narrowed it down to four (maybe five) songs so far.  One song has three different languages in normal usage . . . one of them being English.  I record little trial runs to see if each song is remotely suitable and/or too […]

Ruinous Recitals and Routine Renovations

Oh my word. The Recital:  Disastrous.  As in:  I was a disaster. This was the first recital I’ve had to pay to attend. Yes, pay.  And on top of that, expected to bring something for the reception buffet. So, it’s hilariously, maniacally so, THE WORST . . . AND the most expensive to boot. I’m […]

WHOOSHxThree

Lately I feel we have seen more (figural) money fly out of our hands than ever before; bested only by the WHOOSH felt when closing on our houses. (Figural money = numbers upon numbers of calculations, really.) 1. We are getting a third heat pump installed. Knobby’s office has long been a suffering point.  Think […]
