Bizarre day!

March 17th, 2012 at 11:53 am

DH took the kids out so I could get some work done. I hear the doorbell, and find a tiny Japanese woman at the door who barely speaks English. Turns out, she is the former owner of our house! She was back from Japan to pick up some of her work papers. She came in and I gave her a tour. She was so excited to see the house and was very nice, and very friendly. It was strange, but nice!

I did get one freelance assignment done so far today, which is a relief. The kids are still gone, so I swept out the garage, put some organic pre-emergent weed inhibitor on the lawn, and posted three items on craigslist-- two free (kids soccer goals and extra piece of tile backerboard from the shower incident), and the kids IKEA high chair for sale for $10. Hopefully I can get rid of all of that.

There was a pile of bricks in the garage as well. I moved them out by the front garden bed, as I plan to use them to build a very short wall/ledge around one side of it. That way, I can add more and better soil for the butterfly garden, and it will stay put.

    are you building the wall down into the soil at all, so frost heaves don't mess it up?

    Yeah, that was the plan.

    That's cool. Smile I've gone back to old houses I'd lived in before, but I never have actually asked to go inside them. My dad has though. Smile
