We got some more art framed and hung around the house which continues to make a difference in making things more warm and homey. Despite this though our living room still feels very strange. We have an odd selection of furniture with peculiar location requirements- a corner for the DJ rig, a lot of wall space for the CD library etc. I really like the couch jettying out into the middle of the room but it does render one wall very strangely bereft of utility, and hard to appoint. We'll see what happens.
We had a great housewarming party. It was wonderful to have our place filled with our friends... it made me feel very lucky to see so many great people I care about all togther, and to have them sharing our space. Also the place is big enough that having more than 4 people in my place at one time did not immediately make me crazy and want to run and hide, which is normally how I react to parties, and why I only ever had one in the 5 years I lived on Republican.
The Bultman parents are expected in town in a few days, and things will be ramping up again with gardening plans, yard trimming, and some doors-n-locks action hopefully getting taken care of.
Further updates as events warrant!
