Xantippe sees a real live loft

Here are a couple of things that have happened lately:
  • Yesterday, D and I had an invitation to visit a family downtown. I was immediately intrigued by the address, which was right in the old business district. The family (mom and dad and four little kids) lives in a converted department store. The ground floor is a banquet hall and the upper floor is an enormous loft, with acres of (probably original) hardwood floors and 12-15 ft. high ceilings. They've been working on it for about 8 years.
  • Today, my husband took the kids to the small local amusement park. We fixed our ride budget in advance and the kids contributed generously from their funds.
  • Back in Washington State, my family is just finishing up the hay harvest.
