Maybe a house

Plans are breezing about to possibly move into a house within roughly six weeks, and a four-bedroom house at that.  It also has a pool, a small dog door (not for unsupervised use because it leads to the pool and I’m doubtful the old lady can swim), an attached garage, a window seat (a childhood dream!), and no washer/dryer or refrigerator.  That means we’d have all-new, pretty, energy-efficient major appliances we chose ourselves, and pay a few thousand dollars for the privilege.  Other negatives: no windows in the dining room and the kitchen window looks into the sun room and not to the outside world, the master bathroom has a shower stall instead of a tub, and the closets are fairly small.

And the time frame puts it in the middle of 110 degree heat, not a good time for moving.  In fact, I recall telling friends who moved in August last year, “You guys are idiots.  It’s too hot to move.  Wait another month at least.”  If it actually happens, I plan to do the lifting and carrying after dark, when it cool off to the 80s, if we’re lucky.

    Well! So you and the – butler, significant other, etc. – are thinking of Renting a house. Sounds like you;re thinking long-term (or maybe HE is). Apparently, your (plural) space has become filled up with the stuff we all collect. With a bigger space there is the chance to leave your quilt-making stuff out (or better yet, more room for STUFF). Obviously, you’re NOT a chip off the old block!!! Anyway(s), there might be a couple of days under 100 in the next few weeks and that would help (a little). Too bad you avoid mentioning HIS name in any of your blogs. Interesting!
