Melissa planted some bulbs in some old plumbing fixtures (sink and tub) and installed them in our lumber yard / trash heap of a back yard. Now we're reaping the benefits. She and Daniel Talstra also pruned the peach tree last fall and I think the new shape gives a Japanese aesthetic to our garden.
We're suddenly feeling ahead of (our revised and extended) schedule. Our upstairs tenants don't move out until May 1st so we can't move up until then, no matter how soon we finish the bottom two floors. So we are making a few tentative forays back into our social lives. Here Dan bakes a d-licious cake for our oktoberfest celebration. His drywall skills were applicable to the icing procedure.
