nothing ever happens….

on this blog, when i’m trying to build a house, have friends, enjoy your husband, play with your kids, teach one to ride a bike without training wheels, email and call all your friends that no longer live in town. oh, yeah, and eat and sleep.

oh, sorry. you’re still there. i’m very sorry that i haven’t posted in forever.

interesting developments right off the bat, in list form:

1. we haven’t started building for realsers, yet.

2. there is now a fence on the property line (as opposed to almost 2 feet into our land) that has lovely horiz. stripes in varying shades of cedar.

3. our lot now looks just as small as it is, making passerby in cars and on foot wonder, aloud, ‘you’re going to build a house there?’

4. it also now has a construction fence, which was built by hand in the pouring deluge that is central texas this summer by taylor, alone, while the rest of us attended the city swim meet.

5. i’m working super hard to forge new territory, namely, a swimming pool made from a shipping container. we’ll see if that pans out. more later, because there’s a lot to say on a few subjects [recycling architecture, trying new things, taking risks, and the size of our new backyard]

shipping containers

and there you go. if you happen to know someone who already has a shipping container pool in their yard, please have them post here.
