Zums told me that he's ready to become handy, so I put him to work this weekend. We had to get a lawnmower, as our lawn hadn't been mowed since our closing. With all the rain we've been getting - over 5 inches this month! - it needed a good trimming. We got the drapes hung in the study and in our bedroom. I am loving the 'Texas' orange silk curtains in our bedroom! In other house news - the painters finished up their corrections this weekend, the drape fabric for the living room has been ordered and should be here in 2 weeks, our recycle bucket arrived and it's entirely too small to be picked up every other week. It was a glorious sunshined weekend, and we got in some good tanning time at the pool yesterday and took a walk to the reservoir this morning. 4 days and counting til San Diego for the 4th!
