The house is coming

August 22, 2003

The house is coming together.

This is good because our pace of unpacking is slowing down. We still have a few boxes in every room, but most of the furniture is where it belongs.

I was sitting in the living room the other day, looking across at the hunter green carpets and the big oak bookcase full of history, and I thought that I liked what I saw. Last night and again early this morning I was in the upstairs looking at the way that the yellowish-white walls glow in morning light or dim incandescent light, and I liked it. It was warm and cheerful and made me think of honey.

And so to work
