No Termites

Our termite inspection was this afternoon and didn't turn up anything active and only a small, old bit of damage. So that's that. I guess we really are buying the money pit on the other side of town.

And thus, I present to you -- The Purple House:


I love the character of old houses. I just don't like repairing them. Ours is almost 60 years old, but it's got its own issues.

Hey, I think your present house is dishy, but it looks like you're advancing to a bigger front porch with this one. Looks like you'll be spending lots of time outside, eh?!!

Lots of, um, "gardening opportunities."

Janis, you don't know how much I want to cry when I think of all the time and money I've spent on the garden here. Since we're going to have some overlap time in home ownership, some plants are going to be moving with me.

I think I do know and I'd cry, too.

Congrats! I think the purple house is cute!
