For those of you who are regular visitors, you should be familiar with The Big Blue House. For those of you who don’t know, The Big Blue House is a house that belonged in The Mister’s family for a long, long time.
For most of the year, someone’s been workin lil by lil on it. In June, I shared how The Big Blue House got a new door.
Most of us liked it, and almost all of us agreed that it’s great someone is putting effort into the house again.
Well, this week, The Mister was on his way to the DQ when he called to tell me Big News on The Big Blue House — The Big Blue House is no more. Now, it’s the Big Orange House!
I stopped over there last night to take a photo. The boy one, he asked me, “Why is this house so familiar?”
“It was Mamaw’s house. Usta be blue.”
“Oh, wow. It seemed so much bigger when I was a kid.”
Yeah, growing up does that to us all, hm?
Some of us love it, because orange is Moo’s favorite color. Other people, like Sassy, are orange haters, whether because orange or because sister, I do not know. Some of us just wanted it to stay the way it was.
I am a fan. I’m so frickin glad it’s not beige or tan or khaki, I revel in its orangeness. I’m thrilled for that house, I am. Happy as can be!
I’m sure at some point I’ll re-update you on its fixins.
For Old Time’s Sake, I’ll also share with you the door of another big blue house I spent a lot of time in.
