goodbye Elm Street
Upstairs the closets had storage spaces behind them, with ceilings that sloped under the eaves. We called them cubby holes and each had our own to play in.
Not every house is a home but this one was.
What's a little dirt between friends?
Some of you may remember that my getaway to Lake Tahoe was cancelled last month. Cayce and I rescheduled for this weekend in Austin, TX, which happened to coincide with SXSW, a 4 day music festival featuring more than 1,000 performers at almost 100 venues. Initially I didn't care much about the festival, but it added a lot to the weekend. Every coffee shop, book store, and street corner hosted a different band. If you didn't like the music that came with your margarita, walk half a block and see what comes with a cupcake. Day time performances were free, and night time shows averaged $10. We crammed a lot into four days, starting with a visit to the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center.
We arrived on Thursday night, having left Sunday afternoon with a bare floor in the kitchen. We knew the base cabinets were in place because the counter guy had called to say he was drawing the template on Thursday. But we never expected this!
