Happy New Year!

Quick update on the roof work:

We found the contractor and are set on the budget. The details should be ironed out on Saturday. And we should be ready to go in the spring... Wow. Finally.

Quick shout out to a fellow blogger, author of a website about Lawrence C. Earle, a talented painter who did Fenn's portrait you can see here. It is a really well-researched site with a very comprehensive list of sources. I highly recommend it.

One of my New Year resolutions is to finally finish the work at the American Watercolor Society. Having said that, this month we have the following on the agenda: a trip to Europe, a family visit, and a surgery. So, I'm guessing, this is not going to happen until at least February. One can always dream...

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?






The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Award from Montclair Historic Preservation Commission

Our lovely porch restoration has won an award from the Montclair Historic Preservation Commission for Brick and Mortar Preservation project in the residential category.

We are very honored. Here is the story in Baristanet.

And here is the photo of the porch.




The awards ceremony is on Thursday, November 19. We hope to see you all there.

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
