The contractors finished the small bath one day later than expected, and our list of things to do blossomed like a lilac bush in spring, so the two-week project became a 2.5-week project, which, I hear, is still a pretty good schedule. The work on the main bath is nearly completed, as is the work on the (added project) front entrance and the (added project) repainting throughout the house. Everything else is done.
Although the Misses and I exceeded all of our goals for studies and music practice over these last two weeks, we had little time-space for “free reading” or other pursuits. We weren’t even able to walk or bike midday, as is our wont in April and May. You might imagine, then, that we are certainly looking forward to being less house-bound once the contractors roll up the drop cloths for the last time tomorrow night.
Speaking of music, we saw violinist Itzhak Perlman at the Lyric earlier this month. Wonderful, wonderful. Our upcoming adventures include a nature drawing class, All’s Well that Ends Well with the Shakespeare Project of Chicago, and Henry V at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater.
