the last visible dog

And of course now I feel a bit silly

Because the painters have cleared out (though they'll need to come back for about one day when the door from my dining room to the deck has been replaced and they can do that wall).

But I think that showing my contractor that I was stressed helped by lighting a bit of a fire under him, and perhaps things have gotten done quickly these last couple of days when he might have been inclined to leave me for later.

I woke up this morning contemplating the full awesomeness that is my - effectively - new house. It's lovely. I can't believe the difference. I have a lot more to say about the whole rite of passage that this means, and I will write about it soon. I promise I will have pictures, too, but we're not quite ready for before and after yet. I need some furniture in my living room and to get my bookcases back in place and there is still work to be done. But I can start settling in to my kitchen and can spend the weekend giving my floors and windows a good clean.

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
