Progress in Pictures

Out of great messes comes a home.

The Geezer and a neighbor get ready to hang the stained glass window.

Manhandling it up.

Wrassleing it onto its hooks.

Loading up the truck for a trip to Lessa’s house.

Old art for a new home.  Gotta have art.

The Geezer painted the white and the terra cotta.

Today I hung art on the fresh walls and emptied boxes.

Tomorrow I work and swim then do more tchotchkes in the living room….oh, so very many.

  • Keeping those on the east coast in my thoughts.

  • Himself:  Working his tail off so he can make time to help unpack.  Got rid of two boxes of clothes and one of socks.  NCIS tonight.

  • Herself:  Another two boxes of books out the door.  ALL the  boxes in the living room done too.  Moved all the big furniture pieces.

  • Reading:  Nothing at this exact moment.
  • What is the “Quieter Home Program”:  The Airport authority is installing new triple pained windows, new doors, and HVAC for those of us who live under the flight path.  We will have deliciously quiet lives but cannot sue if they crash into us.  Free.  They have 15 days to do this.

  • Balance:  Going out to dinner…simple food.


    1. Congratulations! You and G are making great progress.

    2. Bit by bit, but heavens, what a chore this has been! It is like moving home without the luxury of moving things into an empty house. I admire your tenacity.

    3. It's really coming together. I like the white and terra cotta.

    4. My goodness, you are working your tails off on this project. You must be either feeling good or achey all over. Dianne

      PS Love that terracotta paint.

    5. You have quite an artist's eye. Even with the boxes your home looks welcoming and beautiful. Glad it will be more comfortable as well.

    6. Wow! It looks fabulous! You have such an artistic eye, Mage. I'd love to have you help us with decorating.

    7. I'd love to see how the stained glass looks once it's hung up.


    What a delight to get a note from you. Thanks for leaving one.
