Project 52 - 21st date - A home

I think technically it was my turn to come up with a date this week but I have been feeling lousy with a cold so Tim took on the job. I would like to just take this opportunity to say a big thank you to Tim for being such a huge darling and helping me out so much for the past week while the kids and I have been sick.

This week we continued on the theme from last week's date on house talk. We wrote a wish list of things we wanted to have in a new home. We want it to be a home though and not a dream. We tried to be reasonable and only included things we thought were achievable.

It was good to sit down and write out what is important to us in any future house. We have talked about it so much but never actually committed to paper things that we wanted. We both knew that we wanted a bigger and better kitchen but had not really spoken about the appliances. We are both interested in building a home that is friendly to the environment and our finances. Things like a grey water system for the garden and it needs to be solar passive. The garden is important but it needs to be low maintenance where possible. We would really like a useful outdoor area with BBQ and seating on a deck. And with 3 girls, a second bathroom is going to be important. That is just a few things.

Next date, hopefully I will be feeling better and can come up with something. It must be nearly time for another photo booth date like we did here and here.
