Clean Up in Aisle 2

Now that everything has been cleared, and the leaf blowers have finally departed, I give you a photo of what the front looks like today. I still have to move some bushes and Irises to the front steps, but the difference can be seen, clearly. Gone are all the dead trees and bushes, we moved some stuff around, pruned, and, yes, we can now actually see the House, without it being overshadowed by the overgrown plants. Looking forward to the next season, when we can plant some new rose bushes and maybe a hydrangea or two.

Our thanks go to the E. Noriega Landscaping crew, who did a great job in that awful heat. We are looking forward to having them take care of our greens this season.

We found the "missing" house

Thanks to one of our readers, Robert, who identified the house on South Mountain Avenue.

I almost crashed into a tree while looking at it and can't believe I never noticed it before. It was right there. I mean, it looks exactly the same as in this photo. Right?

The funny thing is that I drive by the house almost daily. Which goes to show you just how many things go unnoticed in our lives...

Award from Montclair Historic Preservation Commission

Our lovely porch restoration has won an award from the Montclair Historic Preservation Commission for Brick and Mortar Preservation project in the residential category.

We are very honored. Here is the story in Baristanet.

And here is the photo of the porch.

The awards ceremony is on Thursday, November 19. We hope to see you all there.

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
