Renovating an old house by a musical couple who want to live there the rest of their lives.
My plan for yesterday was to clean the dining room and the kitchen.
Among the items that I have been saving for some forty years are the theatrical lighting designs I did in college.
This was a huge roll of papers which has now been recycled.
And we decluttered most of the kitchen which I still like very much since the renovation. (Kitchen Source List: 1 and 2.) I think the paper piles ended up in either the shredder or the recycling bin.
The peninsula side of the kitchen is our most-used counter.
The opposite side of the kitchen is now free of tools and paint gear also.
As to my camera’s missing battery charger, it was not in the piles of clutter either in the kitchen or dining room. I checked the pockets of every coat and jacket I own. I still couldn’t find it. I finally found the charger in the bottom of my gym bag while I was unpacking it. I’m not sure how it got there.
Are you missing some key element for which you have been searching?
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.
