Fine Dining

Last year it looked like this:

 Things became worse...

....before they became better.

Admittedly, we still have a long way to go. But two nights ago, for the first time ever, we were able to entertain a few remarkably gracious guests in a room that is actually designed for dining. I think in most households it's referred to as a "dining room"? Such a novel idea!

In prior months, having dinner guests meant serving a meal in our living room. Trying to seat everyone at a table squeezed into a room that was already home to a couch, coffee table, and a few other pieces inevitably made for tight fit. We were more than willing, then, to tolerate the current real (not faux) bois interior, as the scenery was secondary to having enough room to move and breathe. Dinner was positively enjoyable!

By now you've likely spotted the new windows and door I posted about recently. Transom windows are yet to be installed along the top, which will channel additional natural light into the room and open up the space even more, for many a "bon appetit" in the months ahead.
