We did some landscaping this summer.

We added a retaining wall, steps and paver walkway along the South property line. There is also a paver walkway from our central sidewalk over to the new steps.  Turned out nice.

Also – Pulled out all the old shrubs and decorative rock and replaced with new plantings. More blooming through the whole growing season is the plan. This picture shows the view along the south line.

Summer 2013 – Update – Sienna is gone. Needed to go to a place where kids would occupy the passenger area more often! (still have the 95 Previa)


We added a 2011 Toyota Sienna to the household stable this summer. Very smooth ride, lots of space, and nice options. As is the family norm (with exception of the MINI) it is all wheel drive.

The 1995 Previa is now relegated to “hauler and learner’s” status. Just in case you were wondering, it is the best vehicle ever. 🙂

It is time to replace the garage. Having said that for a dozen years, it really is happening this year. The teardown is complete and foundation work begins soon.

We are all happy for this change.
