We are..finally in the secondary stages of planning our new house. I didn't want to talk about it much because I didn't want to jinx it. Hippy Chick is doing the final drawing of it this weekend, and once we approve it, we can start to get prices and start building in spring. (can't build here in winter) just so's you know. I am very excited. I will have a veranda...or a porch whatever... I always wanted a front porch/veranda. Plus I will have a island kitchen with a family room adjacent to it with a lot of huge windows overlooking a forest. Plus Hippy chick put in an area just off the kitchen for my computer and stuff. I'm a lucky little tramp.
It's going to be one hell of a project, and I am sure tears will be shed, but still...it's exciting.
Gord and I along with some friends are going out to the property in a few weeks and do a ribbon cutting ceremony. I need to find a silver spade to dig that first hole. And by the time we are finished with it I am sure one of us will use that same spade to bury the other. Building is stressful I hear.
But, at least having something to look forward to is a joy.
I am starting a new week with good thoughts. And if shit gets in the way, I still have a spade, even though it's not silver.
