It's adorable when Marbles goes to bed -- she looks like a guinea pig that lost her legs and fell on her side.

House Anniversary

I almost forgot!! --- Happy 1 year anniversary on our house!
Time flies... Felt like we just moved in.
The closing date on our house was June 1, 2009.

Latest photo of our house.
Not much has changed from 1 year ago, except we have cute little solar lamps lining the walkway!

We recently purchased a new couch and ping pong table to celebrate! (or just a big coincidence).

We have bigger/greater/debt-inducing projects on our home improvement roadmap including:
  1. Increasing our driveway space in the front yard, thus decreasing the amount of lawn we need to upkeep in the front yard. And decreasing my chances of getting a street parking ticket.

  2. Automated driveway gate (this might just be done simultaneously with item #1)

  3. Bigger deeper kitchen cabinets. The current 1940s cabinets are too narrow and shallow to fit anything.
    And lead paint keeps chipping off the cabinets into our bowls/plates/cups. So if are visiting our house, I recommend checking before ingesting food/drinks!
No idea when we will do any of the items above... =(

Let's just be friends

By the way, if you did not know,
Truffles and Marbles went from friends ..... to not being friends .... and are now back to being kind-of friends.

Stay tuned next time to find out how their love-hate relationship unravels!

Our Jungle

Why is it so hard to grow grass, and vegetables, and flowers....But it's so easy to grow weeds?

If we slack off and not mow the backyard every couple of weeks, then we are greeted by 4 feet tall weeds jungle.
"Hello.  We are weeds.  We come over uninvited and steal nutrients from your garden. Thank you"

We left nothing but a path of destruction.

See you again next month, weeds!
