most of my energies these days have been sucked up by the house. it's really beginning to morph into its final shape. the drywall is up, the tile guy has started in on the bathroom and the stucco guys are coming today. that should be exciting.
a while back we said we were going to paint the house just like it was. hah! we got silly and changed our minds. we decided on a nice warm reddish brown called "cinnamon cherry" for the trim.
perhaps wisely, the painter only painted the porch and primed all the windows on the first day, because "cinnamon cherry" is pretty much "lipstick red" when you meet it in person. we're going for a more subdued "hawaiian cinder" or "sly fox".
