Victorian Society Garden Party

If you remember, about 2 months ago, I went to the Victorian Gardens event organized by the local chapter of The Victorian Society in America. Well, last night was a follow up on the lecture by Jennifer Bakshi, certified landscape designer. She opened up her garden to the members of the Victorian Society. There was amazing surrounding, great entertainment, wonderful weather, fabulous food, and very good conversations to be had, all ingredients for a successful party.

Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my camera to take pictures, but Ms. Bakshi is very generous with both her time and her garden, and if you contact her directly, she will give you the address and a personal tour. I say, go for it. Totally worth it. I know I am going back again.

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...

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.
