Basement Reno complete

If you have experienced home renovation you will know what it means to have your house, your routine - your very life disrupted by noise, dirt and chaos.

For us it began several months ago with the replacement of sewer pipes which meant the digging up of our basement floor, the removal and later replacement of our front verandah, the destruction of our front patio and the loss of our beautiful old hedge. 

All this activity was followed by the restoration and renovation of our basement into a working environment where I plan to complete the writing of my third novel Ellen and The Hummingtree.  This space now also contains treadmill and stationary bike so I plan to get up from this chair and resume my daily workouts.

If I ever had a routine it was totally lost throughout the past months.   I've missed more social and learning events than I've attended.

In five months I have written the first draft of two chapters -- not very much you will say and I do agree.

This morning the house is quiet -- feels strange as though it is almost too quiet.   As I sit here at my desk and look around me I feel almost as though I were in someone else's home.   But I will get used to this new space and I am already beginning to love it.

My goal remains to have the book launch of Ellen and The Hummingtree in the fall of 2012.  Wish me luck.   This is a new day.  :-)


  1. So many background noises! Glad you are moving ahead with the writing!
