The big reason why posting will be more sporadic here than usual over the next six weeks is that we have made a decision that is going to greatly impact my family life.
To one of those “house” things.
We’re not leaving out current town, but the physical location of Casa Jaquandor will be shifting a couple miles. Thus a great deal of time will be spent putting the stuff in boxes and schlepping it to the future location of Casa Jaquandor.
First…the interior needs to be painted. Badly. We briefly considered doing it ourselves, but the job is sufficiently large that we just don’t have time or, quite frankly, inclination. The best idea is to have the place painted before we move, as opposed to piece-mealing the job over a year or so, which will involve moving stuff out of rooms and generally making for disruptive living, as well as temporarily living with what might be the worst colors ever used in a house. Seriously. Look at this stuff:
See what I mean? Ugh!
We’re thrilled about this kitchen, though:
The master bedroom, which is less than ideal for bedroomy-stuff. I don’t want to live surrounded by walls the color of something I once vomited.
Blue Room, Green Room, Pukey Room, Creepy Room! (And that hallway…yipes.)
Back in the kitchen:
But when it’s all done, among other nice luxuries, I will have my very own book room! I get the Blue Room (soon to be the “After the Rain” room, which is a shade of light purple). I will be photodocumenting the eventual construction of my library, but here’s how the job is beginning:
I tremble in fear of what the pile of book boxes is eventually going to look like. A cave-in might kill me.
Onward and upward! Zap! Pow!
