Lest You Feel Pity

Yes, we are surrounded by dust and demolition. Yes, we are finding that what we thought was a very comfortable guest room is, in fact, a little too small. And, yes, we wish we could wave a magic wand and transport ourselves into a wonderfully improved and finished kitchen and bathroom. No such luck. But lest you feel pity for us, it's not all bad.

For example, I do have a microwave oven and that goofy hot plate to use, and the first day of demolition was so warm we could eat outside on the deck. My trusty Weber grill produced some killer lamb chops and cousin Jan brought us lunch yesterday, wonderful rare roast beef sandwiches on Dutch crunch rolls. While she was at it, she brought us a roasted chicken and fresh asparagus for our dinner. 

So, the house may be swathed in drop cloths and blanketed with the dust of ages, and we may be closeted downstairs in the office to buffer the din, but there are fresh tulips and daffodils on the table and we are doing fine.

Diane, thanks. Onward!

Jann, I'd say 3/4 full. I know how fortunate I am.
