Friday! It’s boot weather (temporarily), college football is back, and I had Chick-fil-A for breakfast so I’m off to a pretty good weekend so far. I missed last Friday’s post but I was in the middle of a site overhaul and there really wasn’t much to share anyway.
1 – If you aren’t reading this through an RSS feed, you might notice that my blog has been completely redesigned! I’ve been wanting to get a new layout for a while now and I finally decided to go ahead after finding this theme on Etsy. Kyle took care of the install and migrating everything but there are still a few things that need to be fixed/changed.
2 – The deck is pretty much done! We still have to build the temporary stairs and there’s some finishing work left to do on the railings but the deck itself is finished and we’ve been using it quite a bit. We’ll be staining the deck and the fence in a few weeks.
3 – We finally installed our front door! That means no more Barney door. I’m sure our neighbors will be very happy. There’s still a lot of clean up to do around the windows and we need to shave it or the door frame down because it’s just a tad too wide so it’s hard to close right now. I ended up not stripping the other side and I’m kind of regretting it but at least the exterior looks pretty good! I need to get some pictures with the storm door open but we didn’t finish until after 9:00 last night so I just snapped this one on my way to work.
4 – Our foster kitten Gracie has been adopted! I miss her and Otter still isn’t convinced she’s not here anymore but I’m so glad she finally has a home.
5 – The giant pine tree in our backyard finally fell! It actually fell just a few hours after my last post. It caused a huge mess with the other trees though and is going to be a little expensive to clean up but hopefully it’ll be out of here in the next couple of weeks. We’ve hired someone and now we’re just waiting to get on his schedule. The best part is, it didn’t even damage the cheap lattice fence.
I need to get an updated goal list put together since we’re in a new month. Fall is just around the corner and I am so freaking excited! I started burning the first fall scented candle of the season last night even though it’s supposed to be in the 90s next week. Of course as we creep into a new season that also means we have less time left to finish our 2016 goals so we may need to re-evaluate some of those.
