A City Boy Making His Way in the Country

This week at da ‘house…

  • We have a new fence.  It’s much larger then the last, and allows us to open the carriage house door and let the dogs run free (in the fenced area, of course).
  • The ______ (yet to be named) room has been painted a beautiful shade of “Zen.”  For those of you who may be confused about that name, it’s a blue-ish green and looks fabulous!
  • Today…this very day…puppy pulled a book about llama care off of the dining room table and peed on it.
  • We are off to look at some llamas on Sunday.  They may be the newest members of the Orchard House menagerie.  Stay tuned as I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up.  We must meet them first.  Two boys.  Geldings.  I’m thinking of Gilbert and Sullivan or Stephen and Sondheim for names.  Any suggestions?
  • Construction continues to run smoothly.  We have passed a heating inspection and all is on track for a carriage house entry before the end of the year.
  • Houseboy (a.k.a. Jimmy Brennan) came for a visit.  He helped strip the wallpaper in a bathroom.  He may be coming back, he may not be.  How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?

An exciting week I know.  Don’t you wish your week was hot like mine?!  And this weekend?  Well, we are seeing the llamas as I said earlier.  Donnie has his choir presentation at Denison University.  I am finally going to eat at a Steak and Shake (I have coupons!).  And, I may, just maybe, buy a mattress.  Woo-hoo!
