I realize that I'm a bit slow getting things up right now. I apologize for that and hope to sift through a lot of the photos I've taken soon as I have several posts worth of material and just haven't taken the time to put it up. When I came back from my friends Allison and Rustie's wedding in Luckenback last month, Tyson surprised me by arranging some of our furniture and appliances in the house. I didn't manage to get any decent pictures with my teeny digital camera at night so instead I'm putting up some food pics from our campfire dinner that night.
Tyson has really been enjoying the challenge of cooking over a fire. As you see above, we tried to make some tacos with rice, beans, chayote and guacamole, but have learned from cooking chayote both over fire and hotplate that it takes WAY too long for this low level of heat. Below, you'll see an action photo that includes our first housewarming gifts, a cactus and garden gnome from the above-mentioned happy couple.
Graduate school has proven to be quite time-consuming (an understatement, I know). I've spent the time since I last updated working on actually changing my thesis with my department to document the Small House Movement and have not as yet been successful. I plan to continue working on documenting this movement no matter what and hope to display it here as I go. I promise to post more soon. I'll leave you with a shot of the house during last month's full moon.
