This photo sums up Bruno and Fritz’s personalities perfectly. I love these guys.
Sigh. Where have I been?
Busy weeks, busy weekends, endless and boring projects that aren’t much fun to document (organizing closets, packing up stuff to bring to Goodwill, scraping paint off a window, etc.). We’re also still in the process of trying to find a contractor that meets ALL of our qualifications (returns calls, shows up, does good work, cares about old houses, affordable…) so we can get started on the exterior work that desperately needs to be done. The massive amounts of rain New York has been getting lately are making it very hard to get anything done in the garden, so the deck remains unstained and the rest of the garden remains a dirt rectangle. Oh, and we also really need a junk guy to come SOON, because it’s becoming increasingly difficult to walk through our basement.
We met a couple of very nice future Newburgh-ers on Saturday! I really hope the often-frustrating buying process goes a bit more smoothly for them in the near future, and that they wind up with a great house at the end of it all. It’s so exciting to see more people moving here with the goal of restoration. Yay!
How are YOU doing? What’s the weather like where you are? I’m telling you, the constant gray/rain situation here is really bringing me down.
