Disturbing the Peace

Guess what? This blog is coming to you straight from our new house's living room! Yay internet! Now that we have the wonders of the web, I guess it's really time to start moving in!

We've survived the onslaught of the painter/roofer/windshield repair/Comcast/contractor/insurance provider inspection appointments rather well, although we haven't had a single square meal thus far today.

We did have a chance to give one of our neighbors a tour of our new place. I had just finished painting a rather large swatch of 'Distance' blue on the front left of our house to get a better feel for the color.

I asked for her opinion of the color, and she was very cautious. "Oh... hmm.. that looks like.. fresh paint." Hah!!

Look at us, we haven't even moved in yet, and we're already causing trouble!

Despite the initial public reaction, I personally love the color. We've got paint flaking off everywhere, and there are spots where you can see the last three layers of paint that's peeling off... I feel like a really thorough cleaning, sealing some of the bricks that need it and a nice paint job would really do wonders for our little casa.


  1. She must have been surprised by the bright blue. I think it's cheerful. If you really wanted to scare her you could have told her you were considering painting the house camo.

  2. So glad you survived neighbor. Things are moving fast now. Best of luck finishing it all and finally moving into your new home!

  3. I love the colour. Why doesn't she like it I wonder. It has this charm to it I think.

  4. Haha, I love that idea, Amber! The more I look at it the more I love it. I agree, I think it's a very cheerful blue.

    Thank you, Sinfonian!

    Perhaps she's had a bad experience with a giant, renegade blueberry? Or with the Cookie Monster? Thank you, Pear! I hope that it'll be just as charming in a larger quantity. :D
