13 Things I'd Like in a Future Home (That I don't Have Right Now)

1. No close neighbours (so, no dog barking at butterflies, no «Barry» who likes his music too loud, no lawnmower while eating supper)
2. Large rooms
3. Good size closet space
4. Close to the bus, the train...
5. ... but in the country!
6. A room that would suit better my working needs
7. An «up-to-date» kitchen
8. A quiet street (veeeeeeery quiet)
9. A porch with a swing
10. A mud room
11. A particular style, a particular charm (a house with a little something unusual...)
12. A nice place to walk/jog/run nearby
13. A long clothesline! (Some day I'll tell you about my passion for clotheslines...)

And You, What Have You Made?

Our dear Hula talked about it not too long ago. I keep thinking about it. And I told my colleague Hélène I'd show her these two videos. Touching, inspiring, those things can give you wings.

I'm seriously thinking about doing something similar.
Stay tuned...

Yes, I've started walking two weeks ago, everyday (almost). I power-walk and at times, I even find myself jogging. Am I getting in shape or what? Oh yeah! So I'm breating fresh air, it helps me concentrate when I work and I kind of feel I have muscles. Got one here. Another there, and some more here (they're easy to locate, they're the ones that hurt!)...
