I know it’s been reeeaaal quiet here at the monaluna blog lately. Here’s why: after much looking, Dave and I finally bought our first house! I’ve been complaining bitterly for months about how much time it takes to look for houses and go to open houses, but that was nothing compared to actually buying one. I’ve signed so many papers I developed a whole new signature, my usual semi-precise letters now a bumpy line with some loops and a squiggle. It’s going to be a huge change for us, and we’re both excited and a little freaked out. I’ve already been to 3 pet adoption events, even though I know we can’t really take any of them home until we actually move in this weekend.
Anyway, not much should change here at Monaluna, though it may be quieter for a bit while we get moved and situated, and then I’ll have a lot more room for photography and projects. There will also probably be a slightly more varied offering of DIY projects – I see lots of house and garden jobs in my near future… Speaking of, here’s a photo of what we were up to last weekend. I also learned to use a ginormous miter saw. Does anyone need a tutorial on putting up chair rail? That’s next up on my schedule.
