Though up until now, this blog has mainly functioned as a way for me to keep track of which books I read when, I've decided to branch out a bit. I plan to gush about knitting considerably more, deposit my students' witticisms for all to see, and, perhaps most importantly, keep track of progress on our new abode.
We'll be renting this little hovel for a song. It's just down the road from the monastery, where Pete works and studies. We haven't seen the inside yet, but I'll be there in a couple of weeks to case the joint. After that, the work begins. I'll spend my Christmas break there, cleaning, painting, and generally making it inhabitable. Stay tuned!
