Oh man, the house god is so kind to me. I have stumbled upon the best situation I could have hoped for. Old house, wood floors, working fireplace, pastel hued walls, big rooms, great landlords, and I get to occupy the house for awhile before anyone else moves in with me. There is even a collection of cast iron skillets to use! I feel, finally, at home. So if anyone wants to come for a visit... I will have a cozy, crafty, warm home in Portland at the ready.
