New Home

Mighty Reader and I are getting this next week:



Why? Because it's got this kitchen:



I shall be busy and penniless for the rest of the year! Hurrah!

  1. Congrats. Are you moving yourselves? If so, my symapthies are with you. I've moved far too many times. The last move about killed me. Seriously, I'm not as young as I once was. I told my partner that he could sell me with the house next time, because I'm not going anywhere!

    Best of luck with the new house!

  2. Congrats, and good luck, Scott! :)

    It looks like a lovely home.

  3. Scott: We're moving ourselves. I was lobbying for professional movers, but seeing as we need to spend $9,000 right away on a new roof, we're doing our own forced labor. I'm in my late 40s, so I don't look forward to it.

    Weronika: Thanks! It's a very sweet, charming house. This winter, hopefully, I'll finish the attic and have a Dedicated Writing Room.

  4. The kitchen looks bright and lovely. Professional movers have their ups and downs. (It's especially nice having them move the heavy pieces.) We've moved a lot, and I don't wish it on anyone. It will be nice once you're in though. Don't strain yourself.

  5. Lois: The kitchen is brilliant. There's a big dining area you can't see because the photo of the kitchen was taken standing in that spot. The yard is on the small side, but it's got three flowering trees and room for an herb garden. Three weeks from now, Mighty Reader and I will be having cocktails on the patio! If we survive the move.

  6. Congrats! I spent many years working in restaurants, and I love to cook now that I don't have to do it for a living. That looks like a great kitchen, enjoy...

  7. Oh, what a lovely kitchen. I wish I could trade.

  8. Rick: I did a lot of cooking, too. Like you, now that I don't have to do it for a living, I enjoy it much more.

    Tara: It's the original 1926 kitchen (with updated plumbing, thankfully). Mighty Reader and I plan to make lots and lots of jam there. The stove is pretty old and it's electric; we're going to replace it with a gas range someday.

    At some point, we'll paint the house yellow with white trim and then it will be perfect. I loves me a yellow house.

  11. I love the light in that kitchen. I'd probably write in there if I could. Can I? Will you make me breakfast?

    Seriously, congratulations, Scott! That home is beautiful.

  12. Michelle: It's a fabulous house. Thanks!

    Davin: We make terrific raspberry scones and tea. You'll have to come visit. The table we're going to put in there should be perfect for writing, and I do think the best light in the house is right there. The kitchen is the only room we're not going to repaint; the green is wonderful and we both love it.

  13. You posted information about your nonwriting life. For shame! Now you'll appear more human to your nonhuman fans. Do you hear an electronic smooch of death? Bender eyes you warily.

  14. Dude, you had me at "Dedicated Writing Room." I so need one of those. Good luck with the move and roof and everything!

  15. Justus: Who's Bender? And yes, I'm a real human, too.

    ElanaJ: Mighty Reader and I haven't actually discussed the Dedicated Writing Room, but I'm sure it will be Just Fine with her. Thanks!

  16. Bender's a robot on the show "Futurama." He likes the beer and the laughs. His main skill is bending stuff.

    You, human? I thought you were the machine half of our entity.

  17. "You posted information about your nonwriting life. For shame! Now you'll appear more human to your nonhuman fans. Do you hear an electronic smooch of death? Bender eyes you warily."

    My thoughts exactly. Except for the Bender reference.
