Hey all. I’ve been working away for the past few days, but had evening commitments so didn’t blog the progress. Mainly, I’ve gotten back into the writing rhythm. I forget that it takes me a while to do it, but once I’m there, I’m much happier. I spent the week grappling with the narrative opening with my introduction, and I think I’ve finally wrestled it to the ground. So, that feels good. Today, I’m in the office on campus (Man, does it feel weirdly empty and cavernous after the Cage!) working on student stuff, classes for next semester, and meeting with my …. RESEARCH ASSISTANT!! Yes, I got some bucks to have someone else shlog through microfilm for me. Huzzah!
But, I finally uploaded house painting pictures, so thought I’d pass a few along. We’ve been pretty much sweltering, waiting for the OK from the painterinos to untape the windows that had been sealed up for the lead extraction process. So far, no word. So, we’re sweating it out. (And smelling it up. Man, a house that doesn’t get any air circulation at all for a month is pretty manky. Although it could be the garbage, I’m not sure.)
So — Photos! These are a little old — from last week. By the end of the day, I think they’ll be done priming. So the whole thing is one ugly grey solid blob. I’ll post those photos soon.
The Front With Side Tenting:
Detail View: This siding is probably 100 years old, at least. Very exciting. (To old house geeks like me, anyway.)
Well, back to sorting through the stack of papers waist high that I had left behind me in my office on campus. Why, oh, why do I keep every piece of paper that I’ve ever written on?
Happy Friday, folks!
