Well, it’s been months and months since I’ve had the chance to speak. It’s like someone doesn’t want me to … ahem … complain.
Last fall the kids completed their work on the peanut. With an adorable supervisor looking on, they planted a hydrangea, some hostas, some juniper, and some decorative grasses. They also got some mulch and finished it all up in one weekend. The local deer took out the hostas pretty quickly, but the kids are hopeful that next summer they can find a way to keep them alive.
More work has finally been started on the wet bar/book shelves…
Stain is being applied and then these pieces can be inserted. Steph is impatiently waiting for there to be shelves to fill. Her books have been boxed for more than a year now, making her very sad.
The new addition, Ozzy, has already acquired a lot of stuff… it’s like he’s moving in for the foreseeable future. There are a lot of toys and it seems like more arrive all of the time. Steph is trying to keep things organized, but some days it feels like a losing battle. Every time she deals with one pile, another appears.
The baby is getting big…he’s already 8 months old! He has two teeth, and he’s started some crawling. It is still a lot of work, so he isn’t going far yet, but it’s only a matter of time. I’ll post again when the baby gates go up (I promise)!
