Closed!

The house closed! We celebrated last night with a lovely dinner at Zov's Bistro and Bakery. This is an Armenian restaurant, but it also serves comfort food, and the bakery is eye-popping. Everything is really wonderful, if a little pricey. I had a roasted lamb sandwich and fruit salad along with a cup of golden lentil soup with a hint of cumin. The bread had texture and did not surrender to the moistness of the meat. Lovely.
Richard had his favorite meatloaf. I am not a good maker of meatloaf, so it was his opportunity to sample Zov's version, which he says was the best he ever had. It was served with a cloak of shitake mushroom sauce and a side of lovely glazed green beans and mashed potatoes. The menu claimed that feta played a part in this blend somewhere.
Our realtor, Chris, had an ethereal pasta with calimari and shrimp in cream sauce. I know. None of this sounds Armenian, except the soup. But it was great! I would gladly go back again sometime to celebrate all over again.

How great is that?! I am so glad, Robbi--and your dinner sounded great, too!

So...when do you move in?

Thanks folks!
Well, it wasn't quite a Happy Meal (a la McDonalds), but it was pretty good!
We will take our time moving in. There is a lot of work to be done, and it has to be fixed before we can move in. We need the closets reconfigured, as they are not usable now, the toilet downstairs replaced, the electrical system tinkered with, and the carpet and floor upstairs taken out and replaced with laminate flooring. There's a bunch to do yet, and a month to do it in.
