Aberturas

That's the word used here to refer to doors and windows (openings in a house).

And that's what we went looking for yesterday, because we're at the point where we need to have those dimensions.

But first we stopped at the mall where the Apple store is located, so we could drop off my poor, pitiful computer that's been having major power issues. I had packed a picnic lunch and we decided the second floor food court was a good place to eat. Initially we were going to sit out on the rooftop deck but it was a bit too cool and windy so we moved just indoors, right next to the windows. The views are pretty spectacular -- you can see cityscapes, like this one, in every direction:

Then we headed to a store that our architect recommended that features used aberturas (among other things). Now, you have to drag me, kicking and screaming, to go clothes shopping. But drop me into a place like this...
...and I'm happier than a pig in mud. I could spend HOURS in this kind of store.

Wait, I did spend hours there! Well, only a couple. I mean, how can you resist a place with such a vast amount of loveliness?
I know some of you wouldn't consider that eye candy. But how about this:
Oh yeah. Now we're talking! I've been trying to figure out a way to bring that big boy home with me, but it's waaaaaaay over my budget. *sigh*

Especially since I have no budget for a bathtub at all. We'll just have a shower, like 95% of Argentines. Tubs are rare, and antique tubs even more so. So yeah, that one will remain at the entrance to the store, sharing porch space with some pretty gorgeous doors and an odd assortment of bathroom paraphernalia.

But every once in a while I'll take out the photo and dream a little bubble bath dream.

I love your enthusiasm! I would be totally overwhelmed because I'd fall in love with about 10 different things & need someone else to JUST MAKE A DECISION ALREADY! Kind of like my wedding. Heh.

Made me smile :)
And remember the many trips for specific needs:
light fixtures; sinks; bathroom fixtures; etc. ad infinitum (not quite). What is different, however, is that you luv that activity, and I do not ;)

Lucky you to have enough water pressure to actually take a shower! So happy for you!
