Dear Shenley and Marina,
Before I update you on what’s happening since John and I returned to Comox Valley, I want to say,
“Thank you, thank you, thank you,” for allowing us to house sit your beautiful home while you tour Spain. When we first walked through your front door, John and I agreed that we would only live in your kitchen, TV room and downstairs bathroom but then I remembered that you guys had bathtubs.
With seven months on the road showering, the temptation was too great.
Dan’s bathtub is lovely, (By the way, awesome job on those tiles. How did you install that insert?)
and the sky light is really something. But your bathroom takes the spa experience to another level. It is absolutely stunning. Your tub is so humongous I can actually float in it. And that window with the afternoon light streaming in as I sip my John delivered wine while flipping through your stack of Home design magazines?
Now it’s not like I spend all of my time floating around your tub and phoning John for refills, we’ve been training for Vancouver’s BMO half marathon and The Kusam Climb. Last weekend John and I ran a 15km road race in Merville. Despite the fact that it had been snowing on Mt. Washington and Sayward the previous night, I made the call to run in a t-shirt and shorts. Boy oh boy do you ever run fast when you’re freezing. But don’t worry, feeling in my body was restored once I submerged myself in your bathtub with a “Cougar Town” size glass of wine.
As you know, we’ve been extremely busy house hunting. Trying to choose the perfect home from hundreds and hundreds of different styles and prices has been incredibly overwhelming.
We think we’ve found one that’s just right, but I don’t want to send you a picture in case it jinxes everything. Having said that, here’s a picture of the street. I took this photo during one of my drive bys.
Sadly John has vetoed additional drive bys because he’s afraid the owner might report me as a stalker despite me mixing up the vehicles, and disguising my identity.
That basically sums up what’s been happening with us. We sure are enjoying living vicariously through your travels of southern Spain. Keep those pictures coming.
Your loving sister, and brother-in-law,
Shelley and John oxoxox
PS: Don’t worry about your house, we are the perfect house guests.
PPS: I may or may not have flashed your gardener. Not my fault, I forgot my towel, and John refused to answer his phone.
PPSS: What’s this?
PPPSS: Does the dryer always make the weird clanging noise?
