Backyard Transformation

Here are some shots showing the transformation of our backyard over time.

May 2013 – the weeds have started to take over, wah!

June 2013 – after weed wacking


July 2013 – getting the drip system setup for our freshly planted ice plants, succulents, and sago palms


October 2013 – it’s starting to come over the wall!


early April 2014 – ice plant has been trimmed back! It’s grown that much!!


mid April 2014 – the structure is coming down!

May 2014

Off to a Cool Start

We got our new fridge yesterday!! The delivery people arrived at the beginning of the time window and were super pro. The actual purchase on a super duper Labor Day sale 6 weeks ago. I’m soooooo excited about this. Our old fridge has been slowly breaking piece by piece. Nothing too important of course. Plus it froze stuff seemingly at random.


Sadly, it has been beeping at us since 20 minutes after it was plugged in yesterday. Just enough time for the delivery crew to make their escape! The customer service guy told me its the door open alarm. At least it is keeping things cold and I will be at work unable to hear the beeping. It’s sort of a friendly, yet persistent reminder that its not happy.
