I grew up in New York. Bayside, Queens to be more exact. I didn’t grow up around deer, or rabbits. Not even lizards. It’s no wonder I’m always so excited to spot wildlife. Today I stopped by the new house, strolled around the backyard and spotted:
Right in our new backyard. Then on the way home (to the rental), I spotted this in my rental neighborhood:
I love it. Anyway, here’s current house photos:
Linoleum (upstairs) is installed, plumbing fixtures are in. Towel rods and other hardware are complete. Shelving is done.
I think the remaining items are: stain the banister, carpet, wood floor, electrical fixtures/outlets/switches, and sod/seed/landscape.
Holy crap… almost done!
I did get 4 boxes packed. Most of our stuff is still boxed up and stored in one of the guest rooms so I don’t have to deal with many knik-knaks. If you remember, we saved all of our boxes from our FL to NC move and had them store in the garage:

Jim and I stopped by the house in the evening so that he could see it. Sometime since my earlier visit and now, they even managed to get the house numbers up. Looks fantastic. I’m sure they’ve done a lot of other stuff inside too.
For Jim’s birthday, his Mom and Morgan sent him a 40th birthday “care package”. It was a hoot. 40 different items, each with a note attached crammed into a FedEx box. Things like an adult diaper, denture care products, etc. I’m sure it was difficult to find 40 products with a story.
