An actual vegetation change

And some piles and anti-piles were made yesterday. I like coming home and not knowing what has changed during the day.


Stone set in

The flagstones have been better arranged and set and the back step has been mortared in place.


New path!

The cement for the new path was poured yesterday and it looks really good. Also the side yard has been cleaned up.

Yesterday we also picked out our kitchen and bathroom fixtures, sorry, but no pictures of those. Also we finally lined someone up to remove the […]


Dirty Found

When I go to Bookshop Santa Cruz I make sure to check if there are any new issues of Found Magazine, usually to be met with disappointment. It isn’t the most regular of publications. I was happy to find that they publish a “Dirty Found” magazine filled with all the things that people sent in […]
