Homestead Update

Tuesday - 31 August 2004

In other life, I am done with the major painting of the interior, still have touch ups to do and certain access areas. We got the prefab (cheap) 10′ counter and sink installed last week in the kitchen. Still have to hook up to the drain on that. Because we don’t have real cabinets I […]

9th Anniversary

Thursday - 29 July 2004

It’s been so long since I posted.. don’t know where to begin! Guess I will go backwards, as it is freshest in my mind 🙂 We had our 9th wedding anniversary on July 27, we have been together 13+ years though. Nice dinner at local Mateel Cafe with Russel’s sister Carol who is visiting from […]

Lois Lane..

Friday - 7 May 2004

I remember a line in one of the first Superman movies, where after Clark took away her memory, she comes into work and asks “What’s happening in the world?” There’s a feeling I get from that line, not that I am not aware of what’s happening in the world, but that my life has been […]

Spring Cleaning

Monday - 12 April 2004

I mentioned here about getting a new computer. It has been ordered but not built yet. Which is a good thing in a way, see the small (tiny) town house we live in is filled to the max and one 15′ wall is an assortment of shelves with tapes,books,cds, misc junk, pictures, baskets etc… well […]

My House is my Palette

There’s a narrow hallway between the bedroom and bath, in front of the utility closet, this was painted the very bright chilled lemonaide. And the wall […]

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Google even recognized it! The last Monkey year was 1992, I remember it well. I do hope for Russel and I that this one goes a bit smoother. Waves HI! to a special Monkey person 🙂 Chinese Astrology is fascinating to me, as is what we know as regular Astrology. There is […]

Bathroom – finally water!

Tuesday - 7 October 2003

This is the color we painted the bathroom.   I don’t think the computer/camera gets it quite right, it seems to be a brighter bluer blue in real life. This is the vanity we quickly got on Friday.. i do like the maple and mission style of it. The faucet we bought is chrome, with […]

Painting Again

Wednesday - 27 August 2003

I mentioned in this post about some colors we used to paint the shed. Here’s the picture: The closet became multi-colored, and it is a very bad paint job .. but here are the colors:         I also used the ‘too pink to be mauve’ color on the top of the lid […]
