The past several weeks have been a firestorm of activity. I finished and defended my dissertation, Kari is finishing her internship and preparing to start her post-doc, we moved her into a new townhouse, and we spent five days in Seville, Spain. Now with the possibility of life slowing down a little we should be posting more frequently. We have a basement full of vintage furniture, a teak wood patio set, and several unfinished renovations, so we will have plenty to write about.
Last weekend we endured the heat and ventured to Community Forklift, a nonprofit reuse center for home improvement and architectural salvage. We probably spent over an hour just wondering around, half of that time I spent digging through several deep stacks of trim, the other half was spent daydreaming about things we could build using some of the unique pieces lying around. I think Kari is worse than me, I think most of the time she spent digging through an endless array of boxes filled with tile and playing around in the lighting aisle.
