Caution: Men at Work

Thump, thump, thump. Ping, ping, ping. Clank, clank, clank. After a brief hiatus, the sounds of demolition and construction have resumed. Daniel just finished knocking a hole in the wall for our new radiator. Tomorrow another coat of paint will go on the walls. The new door should be arriving any day now, and hopefully by the end of the week, the wood flooring will be installed.

Daniel has been working very hard to make our home both comfortable and attractive, and for that I am very grateful. He has definite ideas about how certain things should be (that is my diplomatic way of saying that he can be a bit stubborn at times), but usually he is very open to my opinions and suggestions. For now we are concentrating our efforts on the bedroom, but plans are in the works for changes to the office and the kitchen as well. Once the painting, flooring, etc. are finished in the bedroom, I am looking forward to buying some new furniture and decorating with some of the contents of suitcases 1-4. I promise to post photos once things are in order.

We jokingly refer to our modest abode as "el palacio" (the palace). Palace it is not but as the old saying goes: Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home.
