Adam, Beth and I had some good conversation covering subjects that litter talks between new home owners - heating bills, noise, furniture, space, and how many times we mooned the neighbors before we got blinds. Yuppies are a bit of a curiosity here so we also have our fair share of people "inspecting" our homes through all manner of tippy-toe-neck stretching shoulder stacking antics. And then there is the binocular viewing from the Pevear apartment building across the street. I have my own set of binoculars. I watch them watch me. We wave.
So, for your curiosity here is how my place looks. Sorry about the mess.
Dining area and kitchen, the poster is meant to be crooked.

And I'll put up pictures of the study and the other bathroom once they're finished.
We also talked about Depeche Mode, a band Adam and I enjoy, as well as the happenings around town, and, of course, power-tools. The bit of conversation I remember the most, though, is a tidbit from Steve. He stopped by briefly and watched a bit of the movie with us. Steve and I raised our glasses and Steve proposed a toast - "to life."
To life, I thought quietly to myself - one sweet rainy day at a time.
