He Knows

The greenhouse was delivered in the middle of the day.

Two boxes: the long skinny one is heavy, the other one not so much.

Charlie brought 2 packages into the house.

Hmmm, I wonder what's in the box with this label.

He’s pretending not to know but both boxes have a drawing of a greenhouse.

This is what it should look like.

Maybe he’ll have it erected by Christmas.  Who knows?

Are you good at surprises? Do you even like surprises?

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.

  1. Well shucks, that’s too bad. On the other hand, he’ll be busy thinking about what to put inside it – anticipation is lots of the fun, I think. Me – surprises – not so much.
