A Week of Rain

It’s been raining all week including today which both precludes exterior painting and cutting trim since the saws are set up outside to keep the sawdust at bay.

That doesn’t mean nothing can be done.

The dining room has become the central spot for keeping our tools and supplies.

My bedroom cleaning was such a success that I decided to try to make the dining room once more accessible to painting and papering the walls. That’s my task for Saturday.

Ahem, if you look down you'll see a box of caulk, Charlie.

Charlie called me at work yesterday to find out where the caulk is so he could fill the gaps in the dining room. That’s a perfect task for a rainy day and now I can tick that off the list which means the paneling is ready for its final coat of paint.

One of our pervasive and ongoing clutter issues is sheet music. We must focus on a permanent and accessible solution.

Then I’m taking my family out to lunch.

What room in your house is next on the list?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
