I canâ€™t tell you very much about the interviews, because I wasnâ€™t there except for lunch. After that, I was to meet a real estate agent at a local Chiliâ€™s restaurant. The lunch took a little longer than I thought, plus I passed the restaurant without seeing it, making myself fairly late. I felt bad for the guy, wondering if he thought I was blowing him off.
I fell in love immediately with the first one we saw. Approaching it I saw only trees, then we turned into a gravel road. Snuggled well back behind any view or sound of road was the house on almost 2 acres of land. The house had a great feel to it. Clearly it had been lived in by a family that did a lot of things together and were artistic. It felt like having a really nice cabin in the mountains.
The second house was nice, but nothing spectacular about it exceptÂ its well doneÂ fireplace and a nice screened porch.
The third house I also fell in love with, especially with the book shelves built in all over. There was a studio/office brick building several yards off from it and a fantastic gazebo. It would have been a really good fit for us, except for the lake (which would otherwise make the house extremely desirable). 3 yr old has no fear of water and will push an adult off him to go into the deeper water. He isnâ€™t afraid of his head under water either. Thinking about it, I also decided I wasn’t sure if I wanted a writing place so isolated from the family. A few years ago I would have been very excited, but recent experience has helped me learn how to write with lots of interruptions.
Â I lost track of time at this house, and left my cell phone in the car, so not only was I a bit late picking up Vladimir, he didnâ€™t know what had happened to me. Yes. I had a bad day as far as reliability goes. We picked up Vladimir and drove back to where I left the rental car at Chiliâ€™s.
The interviews had gone well for Vladimir, but he was too tired to even think about it as was I. We managed to get ourselves to dinner (Japanese tempura). I wrote my Fiction Friday, and then we crashed into the bed.
