We finally got around to getting our back yard landscaped. Arid Plant Designs did it, and they did a great job. We finally have something in the back yard other than dirt! We even have grass! I’m pretty happy having some grass for Kirin and the dogs to play in. I’ll post some better stills tomorrow.

The late night phone call in Pisa, Italy was our son, Eric, informing us that the countertop people had called. We were excited.

“Well, the bad news is that the manufacturer made a mistake with your batch, which we rejected. Instead of the middle of October, it will be the middle of November.”

We were not excited.

Inspections, tarps, roofing and doors and windows and a/c ducts and vents and electrical and turn the a/c back on and we move back in…wheewwww.

Our poor fence started falling down almost as soon as we moved in. Many of the posts had become rotted through at the base, and once the dogs started leaning on the fence, it’s days were numbered. I figured early on that the solution was to simply replace the rotted out posts with metal poles. Simple right? Ha!
