My new house

Well. That took longer than expected. I figured once I moved I'd be up and running in a matter of days. Not. Moving is one thing. Settling in enough is another. But first the house...



I know. Pretty effing cool. I'm sure I mentioned it before but this house even has an attic, with FIVE rooms. If only the stairway to get up there was wider I'd consider making that my space. But my room is pretty awesome. Big bay windows with this amazing tree outside, and now that the tub is gone...Oh, did I not mention the tub? Yup. there was a big heavy old fashioned tub in my room the old owners had moved in from the bathroom. Why? God only knows. But it ended up in my room. Getting it out proved to be relatively easy (three of us tipped it and pulled it out on a quilt), but took weeks to arrange (don't ask). But it's finally gone and my room feels waaaay better now.

Meanwhile, I bought a nice used reliable car (another Rav4), and a new computer, or more specifically, a laptop. An Alienware laptop. And Fallout4. I forgot how much fun it was to kill to raiders. I'll be adding Skyrim soon, which I may actually be able to play all the way through now.
I also read a very interesting book, Thunderstruck by Erik Larson, and watched an awesome movie, GET OUT.

 Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.

I highly recommend it. 

So. Tell me what you've been doing. Read any good books? Seen any awesome movies? Played any cool games?

  2. I have a dozen or so movies waiting for me on my DVR, but I don't get to watch them until I'm caught up on my shows. And since there are two different full season shows on there, it's going to be a while.

    Congrats on finally getting settled.

    1. I haven't watch any of my shows since moving. Can't wait for the next season of Supernatural to be available.

  3. That's a cool house. I wonder if the attic was once the servants' quarters.

    Love,

    1. I would assume so, tho I do know the house was once a home for the elderly tho how anyone really old would manage all the stairs I have no idea. There is a back staircase, which the servants would've used.

  4. Your new home looks BRILLIANT. What did you do with the evicted tub? My father sank one in the garden and used it for goldfish and water lilies.

    1. It got moved across the hall to the bathroom which is it where it was in the first place. The plan is to hook it back up so we have three full baths.

  7. I'm so happy for you! You've got me curious about the movie. We recently enjoyed "The Passengers" more than this sci-fi geek could have imagined. Movies are so focused on special affects now. That was a real treat of a flick. I just finished reading the short stores in "Night Wars: The Dark Side of Dayton" by local writers and am on "Finding Hekate" now, a sci fi novel. Mostly I'm rewriting my own stuff and having a blast doing so. Be well!
