Moving Tips...

Yes, we've moved! Once again the Hatke's are living in Lafayette, Indiana. For the time being we are living in the small appartment where Angelica was born. It's a cozy little place that reminds me a little bit of Michael Hague's illustrations for The Wind in the Willows. (Hague's website is here, and it has some great art, but beware the complicated flash interface). Some of you may remember the place well, but here's a picture to jog your memories:



Oh, and here's a moving tip for anyone thinking of going through the insanity of packing your worldly things into brown boxes. ALWAYS CLEARLY LABEL THE BOX WITH THE COFFEE POT. Better yet, just drive with the thing on your lap.

More updates (and pictures!) from me soon -as I continue to set up my studio.

i miss you guys. not that I lived in VA, or anything...

Ben Hatke said...

Ah. My dad just brought my attention to the fact that my zipcode is, in fact, 47901. Not 47905.

I guess I don't rock quite as much as you thought, Mike.

So you're back in Lafayette. My parents lived there when they were first married (my mom attended Perdue).

Hope all you Hatkes settle in comfortably (and manage to keep very close track of your coffee pot!)

I am coveting that woodstove. a lot.

Ben Hatke said...

Thanks, Elizabeth! It was days before I tracked down our little espresso pot. Luckily there's a new coffee shop just one street over from us (for you Lafayette folk, it's in the building that was formerly Planned Parenthood). I hopped out of bed and brough coffee back from that place about 3 mornings in a row.

Jill, I had a fire in that stove the other day without opening the flu properly and had to open the door and windows. But it is a pretty awesome stove. This will be a good "Christmas" appartment I think.

Ah, I also long for a woodstove! It would take some doing at our house. We live in an old coal patch house built around 1890, and the former owners who remodeled it actually removed the chimney! What planet are they from? What's a house without a hearth? My husband grew up in a house heated by woodstove, and the smell and quality of the heat just can't be duplicated. Lucky you!
