Recessed Lights

Kitchen: Went from 6 light bulbs down to 3, with much more light and the ceiling feels higher. Living room: Went from 6 light bulbs down to 2 and the room feels softer.

Landscaping

Took me three days, but I put in 110 retaining wall block, 20 bags of mulch, moved other random blocks around, and make a fire wood cover.

Sink Progress

We put the sink on the cabinet and caulked it! Getting closer. 

Secret message from Mat: Star, you are so gifted. You are able to solve real problems and design things out of nothing. I am (almost) always amazed by your capacity to learn and evolve. My life would be a shit show without you.

Installing the Bathroom Cabinet

For our 6-year Wedding Anniversary Mat bought me a new sink and cabinet for our bathroom <3 This is our progress so far. He is sooooooo handy!

Mat + Star Forever

After pouring concrete to make our sidewalk straight while installing gutters and drain pipe, I accidentally stepped in the fresh concrete. I was upset and asked Mat if I could fix it, but it couldn’t be fixed. Instead he came up with the great idea of putting our hand prints into the concrete together. I love you, Mat.

Tree Watering System

First of all, a BIG thank you to my husband, who put in automatic fruit tree watering posts! Now the fruit trees get watered by the well and sprinkler timer so I don’t have to lug the garden hose out. Awesome! Next, we are starting to get bell peppers and jalapenos! Lastly, the romaine lettuce is almost seeding – it takes forever after it’s bolted. May 2-7, 2018.
