Since last we posted, in no particular order:
1. New Pet
We brought a large dog into a two-cat household, with better-than-expected results.
My brother’s dog Karma needed a retirement home with no children, so we decided to give that a try. It’s been remarkably successful! I love dogs, but I’ve never had one (weird, I know), so it’s fun having her around. Mayya mostly ignores Karma, but Inigo is getting with the program, as seen above.
2. Permit Closed
At long last, we closed out our building permit for the remodel.
Of course, this has no bearing on the actual completion of the project. But it’s a step in the right direction.
3. Medical Fun
I had an emergency appendectomy, but I’m fine now!
Unexpected operations will tend to complicate your home improvement plans.
Anyway, between dogs and appendices, not much is happening on the house or garden — even less than what we planned for the summer, which wasn’t much to begin with. Back soon.
