There's a Reason for Everything!


No - this isn't some deep philosophical conversation about the meaning of life.  It's simply about why I don't close my closet door all the way - ever.  And that probably doesn't seem like a post-worthy topic except that it drives my husband a little crazy.

Bungalow: Progress on the Deck and Office!





Progress on the bungalow has been a little slower lately because of weather, early darkness and the holidays.  But progress is still being made.

A couple of weeks ago, David built a deck off the back of the house (you can read about it here).  He finished the main part of the deck but wasn't able to finish the walkway from the deck to the garage. He planned to finish it this past weekend but the weather didn't cooperate.  So he came home a little early yesterday and battled the hard, semi-frozen ground to finish the foundation of the walkway.  All that's left now is to put the decking boards on and that'll be easy.

Lucy - The Adventure Continues



Despite David's best efforts at temporarily rigging the back fence line so Lucy can't escape, she still managed.  We caught her in the act yesterday.

The back fence has multiple high spots and the fence is floppy.  We discovered that she's been pushing on the fence and climbing under.  I have to say that I'm surprised.  She's never shown any interest in leaving the yard - at our last house or here.  At any rate, she's discovered that she likes it.  Or at least she likes the yard behind us.  Or maybe it's the German Shepherd.  At any rate, she's no longer interested in staying home.
