And our relationship to Stuff.   I’ve written on this topic before, and most around us know our views on stuff and the acquisition of it and/or attachment to it… but the events of this week are forcing us to revisit…

and a podcast.   We’ve been in BC for 16 days, realized if we don’t return to Portland soon we may never leave, and packed our bags.  Actually that’s not exactly true, our clothes were already in the closet of the…

our trip to BC continues.     The weekend over, we returned (slowly) to Vancouver with our reclaimed wood posts in tow.  Sounds like there are a few more waiting on me back in whistler with the management company in charge of…

at the beach…  Hard to imagine a better way to spend the 4th than with friends at the coast.  We wrapped up the window install and most of the other beach house projects before everyone showed up for the holiday. …

The heatwave in portland continues. It’s amazing how quickly we all acclimate to the very temperate climate portland usually provides us…and then how completely defeated we can be by a few days in the high 90s.  It’s baffling how quickly…

its about all there is to do.  Since we realized we’re out of money, things seems to have slowed to a crawl.  We’ve mostly halted the studio remodel except for the contractors we’ve already paid to get underway- not much…

sometimes it’s a very short distance from high to low. In a few weeks where things seemed to be working out better than we could have planned them, it took us a bit by surprise.  Things recently have seemed amazing. …

The week since the ADU Tour has been a blur.    We have been hopping from house to house in between AirBnB guests.  One night sleeping in the bus, a few nights sleeping on the floor of the demoed but not…

the word is apparently out…  We had blocked out a week without guests in the garage so that we could wrap up some last minute items before the Portland ADU tour came through on sunday.  It was actually a good…

sometimes you just have to know when to say when. This last week was one of those times.  We’ve been burning the candle at both ends and holding a torch under the middle for a bit too long.  It’s slowly…

The craziness continues…  The weekend saw us at exactly 29 days since we first stepped foot back into this creepy house and started knocking out walls in an attempt to make it somehow better.  Not long after, we had set…

It’s been one of those weeks…  One of those weeks where we spend at least a few minutes each day kind of checking in with ourselves and realizing how exactly un-normal we are.  It’s not all by choice.  We can…

Our second visit during French Quarter Fest.  As with last year, the french quarter fest certainly didn’t disappoint.  We had a slightly bigger group with us than last year and rented a house via AirBnB that that we could all…

We’re continuing to make/finish our home base.   Funny how it’s the little things that make your house (okay, our garage) a home.  When we were in the thick of this project we were making absolutely everything by hand.  I had…

There just aren’t enough of them…   Seriously, sometimes I just can’t figure out where the day goes. Let’s take a quick look at my life shall we? I’m unemployed,  we purposefully have no major commitments, we don’t really watch tv…
