Our House

We just got the ETA on our personal belongings — March 4th. Here is the living room of the house we’re not living in yet.

Welcome to our house. As you can see it is raining. Be sure to wipe your feet.

Leave your shoes by the door and join us in the living room.

The couch and chair come to us courtesy of our landlords, who are very nice people.


These couches are firm, yet fluffy. I very much like them.


Here’s a view of the lunch bar and dining room. The table and chairs also come to us courtesy of Walt and Judy.

And last but not least a nice close up of the thermostat controlled fireplace.

Stay tuned for more ….


  1. The faculty temp housing is available until then for you? That’s better than in the military. Often after 2 weeks in TLF we’re on our own, with a small stipend that isn’t enough to buy breakfast for everyone at Denny’s!

    I’m told by the meteorologists that the Pacific Northwest ‘events’ are pushing their way into our area to collide with the jet stream which is giving us so much snow. Could you ask them to hold there a bit longer and snow on Sunday instead of Saturday? I’m supposed to be hosting a forum on Volunteer Recruitment and Maintenance on Saturday and people won’t come if it snows. Thanks.

    1. Kelley, officially we are permitted to stay here as long as Amoeba is visiting staff, but when he becomes permanent staff at the end of March, we lose our eligibility. However, unless they actually needed the space we would likely be allowed to stay until the fair weather (Summer) staff and students arrive.

  2. That is the first time I’ve seen the outside entrance to your home. It is so inviting! 🙂 And I wish I could join you for a nice chat on those sofas in front of the fireplace.
    When we moved to Germany, we arrived on Martin Luther King, Jr., Day and our household goods arrived on March 5th, so I guess that sounds about the right amount of time for furniture to arrive. Your landlords have much nicer furniture to loan out than the U.S. Army!
    Does this mean that you are no longer staying in the temporary housing near the labs?

    1. Karen — I have great confidence that we will someday meet. And yes, we are still in the apartment at the labs. We just went by the house for awhile the other day and I took pics for the blog.

  3. March 4?! That’s over a month away! Why so long? Did you know it would take this long beforehand? Is that stuff is coming by ship rather than plane? Can you live in faculty housing til then?

    The house looks nice! I love the open space and the thermostat-controlled fireplace!

    1. Gattina — we have not yet moved in. Our furniture and possessions have not arrived from Hawaii and we just don’t feel like sleeping on bare floors.

  5. I love your new home! It is very inviting – and you will make it all the MORE so. I must say — I wish I would have EVER had landlords like you have!!! What truly wonderful people they must be! I WILL stay tuned for more! I can’t wait!

    1. Gigi — I have always made a habit of takingmy shoes off to enter the house. Believe it or not, I had a guest once that I asked to remove her shoes and she replied, “Why, it isn’t as if your house was that nice.” I was floored.

    1. Jingle — as the first line of the post states, we are not settled in our new home. Our furniture and other possessions have not yet arrived from Hawaii. Other than what you’ve seen, the house is empty.
