It's been a looong time since I last posted...and I don't even know where to start.
Perhaps I should do a short time line:
Early November- bought house
Thanksgiving- Patrice visited
Mid December- Family visited, home warming party
Late December to Early March- various trips
Late March to April- Raised garden bed construction and starting to plant seeds
April- Lots of yard work
May- Getting estimates for house stuff and getting the house ready for Patrice to move in
Those are the highlights anyway.
When I bought the house, there were quite a few things that were unfinished- some closet doors missing, molding that was never put up, blinds missing, etc.
I'm still trying to finish out getting all the closet doors and blinds up. My handy friend Ken, who was my real estate agent, helped my out with the molding (amongst many other home repair type stuff!).
I figure once I finish up the doors and blinds I wont have much else to do except play in the garden/yard. I can't wait for that time to be here! It was fine doing inside projects when it was cold out, but now that it's warming up I find myself wanting to go frolic outside.
I guess that's it for now.
