A quick visit from our electrician friend and we now have HOT WATER!!

Here are some lovely pictures of me running that half marathon. Honestly, does anyone ever have a GOOD picture of them running? This first one is just gorgeous.



Onto the house--look at what rolled up Monday evening!

Always important to keep a skateboard nearby.

Our new, slightly hazy, fridge! Our friend, Jerome, helped but I "take too damn long to take a picture" to actually catch him in the frame. Below, you can see his nose ;)
Also, thank you to Jen and Bob for the washer and dryer!

After hauling in all the goods, we settled down to a nice evening of scraping dried grout from our counter. (is it weird that we didn't mind doing this?) Some loud music to sing along with and all the sudden, we realized it was midnight.

After puzzling with the electricity (I DEFINITELY left this up to Tavo) we decided to call in a professional. Our friend Ryan came by last night and talked Tavo through fixing our... creative wiring.

Big congratulations to Ryan and Tanja who are now engaged!! :D

Thank you so much Ryan--with your help, we now have HOT WATER!!


lol, thank you Tavo for letting me post racy photos of you.

This is developing very nicely! A lot of work, some running and a lovely soak. Hope you sat in the other end of the bath!
