We’re concentrating on the house this week. Picked out light fixtures today, the painter is finished with coat 1 and they swept up the sawdust and junk off the floors.
They should be getting ready for the driveway tomorrow or maybe the cabinets will go in next. I’m not sure. But when we come back from vacation our house should be very close to being finished.
My office is downstairs. I’ll have a studio upstairs with a chroma-key screen and another computer. The kids are starting to get excited about it too. We’ve been in this small rental house for one year. This time last year we didn’t know what we’d be doing or where we’d be living. The new house will finally bring back some stability.
I did meet with another church yesterday for a project we’ll begin shooting next month. Today I learned of a conference in Gatlingburg the week we get back from vacation. I’m trying to make it work so I can go.
It’ll be one week at the beach and a half-week in the mountains.
Not much else to blog about. We finishe watching “To Kill a Mockingbird” tonight. Every time I hear Reverend Sykes deliver that line “Mary Louise, stand up. You’re father’s passing”, I get a little choked up. I don’t know why that line didn’t make A.F.I’s list of 100 memorable quotes.
Tonight when I tucked my little girl into bed, after her prayers I asked her if she liked the movie. She smiled and said “Oh…I loved it”.
It makes me feel good to introduce them to something I know they’ll remember for a long time.
