Well, we had a friend come over and look at our basement walls, and the way dh talked to him he thought we had big ol honkin one inch gaps, or something! He said not to worry about the wee little cracks much. Just keep an eye on them, and if they don’t move much more there’s nothing to worry about. Apparently basements everywhere have cracks like these. So dh feels a bunch better. We do have to get the gutters on the outside of the house fixed though. But he said the rest of the house, the water drains away from everything, so we’re fine there too!
Then he went on to oooooohhh and aaaaahhh over our old, old, old, old house! Another old house lover in the world! Awesome! He loved all the thick beams, and the high ceilings, and the light fixtures, and the windows with the weights in them. And I showed him the old ironing board cabinet turned into a spice cabinet! And he loved the painted over patterned wallpaper in the kiddo’s bedrooms, and the rustic old bedroom on the original 1908 part of the house. Old doorknobs with actual keyholes under them, and all that good stuff. I love my home!!! 😀
And then as he was leaving he asked were there any convenience stores nearby, and was sad to learn the nearest one was so far up the road. LOL And I did it again. I cannot say Loaf and Jug for the life of me!!! I have even practiced. But when I go to say it normally, just in a sentence, it comes out Joaf and Lug! Every. stinkin. time! Everybody ~knows~ what I mean though, so I guess it shouldn’t be a thing. But it’s making me nuts that my brain spits it out of my mouth like that. Gaaaarrr!
Today, I am getting ends woven in, and things pictured for the Etsy shop. I’m starting my second big bin of items, so hopefully sales will pick up as the weather gets cooler, because I don’t like things to just sit, sit, sit. I like them to be with people, keeping them warm!!! After I get a lot of that done, I might warp up my rigid heddle loom after lunch! I’ve got ideas. 😀
