Finally we can call it ours. Today we officially took posession of our little house. Vivian, Pepper, and I did a little house-lovin' before undertaking a good scrub of the studio garage in preparation for our first house guests. Our Aussie-China friends the Tapleys, who were our closest neighbors in Qingdao, arrive tonight. Poor souls don't know what they are in for, considering they will be camping in the studio but there's not a stick of furniture in the house.
