Elements of an overall good weekend

1. Install a decorative piece on the hallway baseboard to fancy things up a bit, and give the walls two coats of paint (because it's going to be coat weather around here very soon). The color doesn't show up well in the picture, but it's superb I promise.

Color: Valspar's Bay Waves

2. Wave goodbye to a ton of scary mutant weeds as your father-in-law goes crazy with his bobcat, creating this lovely flat side yard ready for fun and picnics! (You're invited! Bring your own grass seed!)

3. Do absolutely nothing productive on Sunday afternoon, and opt instead for some festival fun, good food and live music at a local winery.

Mixing a little work with a little play is, I think, the best way to spend the last few precious weekends of summer.


  1. Looking good! I'm so glad I had a chance to get the full tour because now I can totally visualize (and seriously appreciate) all the changes y'all are doing. Great work!

    Psalm 37:23-24

  2. Thanks J-rod! We were so glad to have you here, even for such a short time. It's hard to grasp the awesome disaster that is 3820 unless you see it with your own eyes. You, your beautiful wife and your adorable dancing baby are welcome back any time! Hope to see you soon.
