Quiet moments are the best :)We just moved into a place without a dishwasher, and I have to say I prefer it. I'm one of those odd birds who enjoys the Zen of washing dishes. Plus, the dishwasher can be so noisy!
It's a big question in our renovate-the-tiny-kitchen plan: do we or don't we install one? I enjoy being in contact with our dishware (like my gramom's old Fiestaware.) And yes, much quieter!! No funny hot soapy smell that one gets with a dishwasher, either.Do you know the book A Year of Mornings? It's all about marvelous quiet moments (all photos.) There's another out: A Year of Evenings, also so good.
Wait, so is this the new house I read you were looking for? Congrats!!
Nope, I haven't heard of those books. I'll have to check 'em out :)And no, unfortunately our new place (as of 11/1) is another apartment! It's really cute but we've decided it will be our last. Now we're considering tiny homes, boats, even RVs (for the travel aspect). My dad has some property on a private island, and I'm very tempted to chat him up about the prospect of buying it :) We shall see where all of this goes. Oh and sorry to rant here for a sec, but our former landlords gave us $50 of the $500 deposit they owe us. Needless to say, I'm researching our options for retrieving that. Oh joy ;)
Well, congrats on the new apartment! New houses are fun. Getting them all worn in and familiar, I mean. Figuring out their quirks, or trying that new paint color you were always tempted towards in the kitchen, etc...When Tim & I were honeymooning in Nova Scotia we saw a tiny cottage by the sea: all boarded up. The type of place, we imagined, a couple lived in half the year while RV'ing it on a giant road trip the other half. So cool. Some property on a private island would also be fun!The Year of Mornings/Year of Evenings books are by two women who met through Flickr, and decided to post their photos in a diptych each morning. Some of the similarities are astounding, and the images are always beautiful. One lives in Portland, ME, one in Portland, OR. I love the books.
