I had a birthday, which J recognized with a great new toy--a Silhouette, or personal digital cutting machine that makes incredibly cool stuff, like this:
We're mid-way through having the gutters fixed from the ice storm, and last week, I had someone out to gie us an estimate on taking out the tree that fell on our deck during the same storm. His estimate was so good that we asked him to take out another tree, as well as the honeysuckle trees that lined two sides of our property. In just a few hours Saturday, our yard went from this:
Now, we just need to get the property surveyed and we'll be on our way to a fenced in backyard. We're pretty sure Zeppelin will be thrilled!
The cabinets are still unfinished, though we've continued to take baby steps on that process. I have a big DAR conference this weekend, but am optimistic that we'll get back on the cabinet finishing wagon next week! We've continued to clean out the library so we've got just the place to install the cabinets when we eventually finish them!
