Quiet Saturday

November 15, 2008

It’s a dark and dreary Saturday here on the homestead. It’s not even 3:30, but feels like 5:00.  We’ve already been to the dog park, Daisy’s dug three more new holes in the backyard, and I’ve finally finished a set of papers. On the docket for the rest of today: a run (maybe), pumpkin/squash saag (new recipe), laundry (definitely), and maybe the first episode of the first season of Mad Men?

The house and I have settled into a calm and reasonable relationship. I’m even learning to live with dog hair.


Completion

November 5, 2008

It turns out that this fall has become the time of completion.

  • Bathroom project? Done! (All but the painting…)
  • New garage roof? Finished yesterday!
  • New paint on the old tin roof? Yup!

I’m liking this feeling.
