More issues with deer

You may, or may not, have noticed that we took a little break over the last few weeks of the summer. It was a very welcome break from many things, including all things "House".

However, the trouble just won't go away. We woke up last week to find these fawns deep in our backyard. Apparently, it was so hot, that their mother decided our linden tree's deep shade was a perfect place for them. And, that our yard was safe enough. Not good.

We tracked them back to see how they got in, considering we have deer fencing. Well, it appears that our next door neighbors' 4-foot fence is not an obstacle at all. And they figured out how to navigate around their cars and garage, walk through the juniper trees, and find a shade under our linden tree.

Oh, well. New landscaping project on the horizon.

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.
