Life is Good!

Dear Family and Friends,

We have been making changes here. The changes are coming slower than we had originally planned because (1) we did not sell our house in the U.S. and (2) our 401K is now a 201K. We have decided rather than touch any of our investments we will just upgrade a little each month until we have our condo completely furnished.

This month we had Hugo come and install more canister lights in the kitchen, patio, and all three bedrooms.

He also added a couple of new circuit breakers to the breaker box and painted our computer room, which will soon be known as the media room, as we are getting a television today. (We hope to be able to watch the inauguration tomorrow.)

We got our media room painted just in time, because we received a call Friday night that our new sofa (makes into a single bed) was ready to be delivered. It was delivered Saturday morning and it looks very nice.

Chuck has been busy buying pots and plants for our patios. It is amazing how many plants and pots he can manage to bring home in a taxi. These pictures show his progress...

Audrey and Jim helping with the formal patio yesterday.

The patio off the living room will be all greenery.

We have not decided on living room and dining room furniture yet. It will probably be a couple of more months before that is done. In the meantime we are getting by with our small kitchen table.

Life is good.

Nancy & Chuck
