Move-in-aversary

One year ago today, Sister A. and I moved into our new house and proceeded to wreck ourselves hauling, cleaning, organizing, and all those other activities that go with transplanting oneself. We've made a ton of progress in the past year--every room painted, both bathrooms almost completely remodeled, some new furniture built, a new patio cover put up in back, new storm doors, new French doors, new windows all around, bricks repointed, new garage doors, new fridge, new fence, and about half the new curtains made. Plus the yard is looking a lot better than it did when we moved in, thanks to Sister A's hard work (she's definitely the one with the green thumb in this household). We love our house.  :)

Sounds just great. Isn't it the best when hard work pays off?!

Very impressive! Just FYI: bird baths are great entertainment for cats (as well as people)--they'll sit for hours, tails swishing back and forth, dreaming of an opportunity that usually never arrives (as with so many things in life, lol). I think Vinca only ever managed to catch one bather, as the birds tended to heckle her when she was outside stalking. :)

We've got some cheeky robins that heckle even when they're on the ground within (theoretical) cat-reach!
