I'm finally back! After a two-week period of being without my laptop (it was being repaired), I got out of the habit of blogging. The most excicitng thing that happened over the last month was that I had our deck redone. He power-washed all the brown paint off, took out the shower, painted the railings white and stained the floor a nice redwood color. I got an End of Summer deal on my new red umbrellas (ellas).
