Headaches and snow in April

This is what we woke up to this morning:

Snow. In April. Not unheard of around here, but certainly unwelcome. We've been having very warm weather and this turn back to winter was quite the surprise.

Yulia and I had headaches the whole day today and being cooped up inside because of the weather did not help. The snow melted during the course of the day, but as of this writing (just before midnight) the snow is falling yet again.

On the other hand, being inside gave us the opportunity to enjoy our house, which is becoming quite livable compared to what it used to be.

Remember this?

This was the corner of our bedroom a couple of weeks ago. Thankfully, it now looks like this:

The hole is covered with new floorboards. The drywall is up, and the poles and shelves are in the closet. We got a call from the store today, and the sliding doors are ready for pick up.

I spent a long, dirty day sanding the bedroom floor. And I spent another staining and lacquering it.

But we finally have a squeaky clean room to sleep in!

Not a bad thing on a day like today.


  1. Again, you two have a beautiful home. Truly crafted in a labor of love : ) Hope the weather is warming up now, please keep the updates coming!

    1. Yup, looks like the weather is turning for the better this week :)
