Here's the fun part: note the gun closet. Cars, modern architecture & guns--who'ld've thought they were so intricately connected.

I would say the only thing lacking is some really colorful art work on the walls.

We did a little exploratory drilling in the kitchen wall, which conveniently has a bit of exterior wall that is not roof—a north-facing gable end that is visible from exactly nowhere. The gable end is in the middle of the house, facing to the rear, you can't see it from the street, the yard, or even the roof of the garage.
After toying with the idea of inserting a little window and then using the attic space to install a mini-split A/C unit, we decided on a new approach: "quick, "easy" and "cheap." A thru-the-wall A/C unit (much cheaper than mini-splits or central air) would be tucked into the wall space, all we needed was to find a small unit, right? The plans seemed simple enough, and as an added benefit, so I thought, a thru-the-wall unit would be cheap, as cooling season has left our northern regions.

There was the Cliff-Dwellers’ wedding in mid April, which was a flurry of out-of-town guests (we even had a brave soul stay in the wreckage at the Treehouse—he was a very good sport and a lot of fun), birthday parties for little humans, two new humans born into this world (another kind of birthday party), and now we are in the middle of trying to plan the party-to-end-all-parties, a task which I am utterly unqualified for. So, pretty pictures, they will come… and some not pretty ones, too, perhaps. But for now, just words, words, words.

And tonight, I will cook dinner on a stove. I hope I remember how.

M&G arrived in the afternoon on Friday. We met up and went to M's sister's place to meet her darling kitty. M-sis has a cute apartment and an even cuter kitty. The kitty has some name I can't spell, so I won't even try.
Saturday was the DBP, which featured mimosas and gingerosas, Famous Family Pork Dish made by M-sis, and loads of cuteness.
More DBP party fun times. If you look carefully, you will see that we had several out-of-towners who made it to the fete, as well as scads of in-towners. Note that Mr.G got a zamboni booklet, or rather the kidlet got a zamboni booklet (that little kidlet will have to pry out of daddy's hands). If all who came had even half as much fun as I did, then I would call DBP a success.

It might well have been the biziest weekend ever. It began with the memorial service for a dear friend's mother. The service was powerful, a deep digging to make one stop and take measure of one's life: where one is at, where one wants to be. And one of the things I resolved was to better keep in touch with those that I care for. And, exchanging seriousness for levity, this last weekend was all about keeping better in touch.
