Popping In

I’m trying to post more often but I just am not finding the time or inspiration to do so.

We spent our first day, since buying the house, this past weekend, doing yard work and porch repairs in preparation for our housewarming this upcoming weekend. Still lots to do but we got a lot done and the yard definitely looks nicer!

I “tiny dog proofed” the yard on Saturday and Harvey got to go leash-free in the yard for the first time. It was so amazing to watch him run like a crazy dog all around the yard, enjoying his new freedom. He seemed beside himself with glee. Sadly, it started raining Saturday afternoon and has not stopped, so he hasn’t been able to enjoy the yard again since then. (Apparently, he hates rain and cold…go figure.)

We also met with our landscape artist again and his ideas blew us away. Can’t wait to get started redoing our yard, project by project.

We had a couple of great social engagements this weekend, but it left us very little down time combined with the day of
yard work.

We woke up this morning to discover a puddle on our dining room table and water dripping through our light fixture. Not the way to start a week. Jeffrey stayed home and called a roofer who came and took a look. He gave us relatively good news, that some flashing and shingles were missing near our dormer window and repairs should be easy, quick and only a few hundred dollars. Jeffrey said he was very cute, but he failed to get photographic evidence. Bad hubby!

I’m pretty certain I’m on the verge of having a full blown cold, given my exhaustion, body aches, headache and flushed face. Very bad timing since I’ve so much to do before the housewarming, not to mention I don’t want to be sniffing and coughing while hosting! Bummer!

That’s what I’ve got for you this time around. I’ll try to pop in more often for updates. Promise.

    That’s good news about the roof. I feared you’d be saddled with a huge repair bill right out of the gate.
