Liz and I ended up having a last-minute, unexpected trek out to Peoria, IL. It was a bit of a trek, but we decided we wanted to take the time and risk to go and look over a few items she spotted at Peoria Architectural Salvage.
I happened across this video, and I have to tell you… I was crying laughing. Crying actual tears, unable to do anything other than laugh and gather myself.
We’re on the lookout for new newel posts. And in the meanwhile, we’re looking to get rid of these. I’m sure someone would take them for free, but I’m also thinking we could get some small bit of money for them.
Craigslist seems too… specific? A salvage/restoration place seems more appropriate. I may break down and give Facebook marketplace a whirl.
Which, to me, looked like dueling gloves. The kind of thing you’d take off and slap someone with, demanding satisfaction.
While I was in the kitchen doing dishes, Liz called me in to the dining room (where she’s set up her light fixing shop area). She had finished up her cleaning, repair, and rewiring of the light that used to hang in our vestibule.
While clearing the sidewalk and driveway was work, it actually felt nice and… dare I say, fun? Maybe that’s too strong – relaxing seems more appropriate. The quiet and stillness was something I really enjoyed. And being outside, after being indoors for days on end, was a nice change of pace.
I had this strange ritual when I was an undergraduate. Well, I had several, but the one I’m talking about was what I did early in the mornings, before I went to my job at the Monroe County Public Library.
I used to be an AT&T customer nearly a decade ago, and was with them for a very long time. Feels odd to be back, and doubly so to compare the speeds I’m getting now versus then.
I’m getting to a point where I think I could start to recite several episodes from memory. Maybe not quite verbatim yet, but give it a few more years.
I’ve seen this before, but never quite so clearly. I guess we can really see which parts of the backyard get sun and which gets shade.
Came downstairs today to see this odd configuration in the bunny area. What… happened last night here?
The game play looks amazing and incredibly satisfying to play. The only downside seems to just be the enormous size of the board, and the enormous price tag.
I have this tendency, whenever I find a new song I like a lot… I’ll eventually turn to YouTube, to see about listening to a live version of the song. Invariably, there are videos from other people doing covers of the song – and I go down a bit of a rabbit hole.
Spent today working in the main hall – sanding down spots that Liz patched, identifying newer spots that need more patching, then cleaning and wiping everything down with a damp sponge.
When I was working on winterizing the kitchen a bit more, I ended up breaking a small flower pot that was on the windowsill.
