New Years Resolve - post more blog!

Thanks to a prompt from Kim, James and I will also be getting the blog up to date, at least. There have been a lot of changes so it'll probably just be a lot of pictures to begin with. Bear with us and we'll get the whole story up soon. After all, it has only been, well, 4 months, since our last blog. Ugggh!

There was a fire in a carriage house across the alley from us the other day. The building looks like a complete loss, but the firefighters did a great job making sure it didn't spread into the neighbors garage or any other buildings.

Derby day was spent on the porch

We got some use out of the front porch on Derby Day.

Frankie didn't get any mint julep, my hand was just out of frame and got there first.
Thanks to Jeff for the pictures.

Anybody want a dog?

Charlie decided to do a little redecorating when we were out.

This is the dining room. We hadn't planned on replacing this carpet. We actually kind of liked it. He shredded the edge, so now it goes on the long, long list of things that need to be done.

It's still winter

We had a little snow...

I guess we didn't get our fill of painting getting the condo ready to sell, so we bought a bunch of paint and we're going to redo the dining room, living room, and hallway. Here's the new trim color on the front window. The walls will be that green color that Cate swirled around over on the right. We'll also be replacing the white blinds with something else.

Here's our test patch for the hallway.

And, some more test patches.

That was quick

They installed our shed yesterday, in the pouring rain. Whatever Tuff Shed does to their underperforming installers must be worse than hypothermia and blisters from walking around in wet boots.
