Random Thoughts Thursday 138

  • Our generator was installed in May (which means now we’ll never lose power)! On Saturday, Steven planted emerald green arborvitae trees to block it from view from the front yard. We’ll let the trees grow as high as the wing wall over the next several years, then trim them to that height.

  • After the generator was installed in May, Steven built out framing to hold in the pea gravel around it and the air conditioners. It looks so nice compared to how it was before!

  • I love that our yard is filled with perennials we don’t have to think about planting each spring!

  • In early June, we hung up some maps, which makes me very happy (I love maps). I hope we hang up more of our prints this year. They make the house feel more “ours.”

  • A year ago, we were flying to Alaska for Nick and Alyssa’s wedding! We haven’t done a “big” trip since then. I am hoping we can go on a trip for our ten year anniversary this year!
  • I’m having a hard time finishing Pour Your Heart Into It: How Starbucks Built a Company One Cup at a Time. It’s too cheesy for me. Steven listened to it in one day and has already moved on to a new book! I need to decide if I am finishing it or giving up on it so I can re-join Book Club for Two.
  • My bike is fixed and I am picking it up today! I better ride it before the race Sunday!

    Yay you got your bike on time! A big trip for a big anniversary, any ideas for where you want to go?

      I have SO many ideas! Somewhere tropical, or Europe, or part of the US we haven’t been to… we’ll see what we can afford! LOL!

    That area with the generator looks great. That’s a great idea to plan the trees there to hide the view. I love the idea of a big trip to celebrate a 10 year anniversary 🙂

  3. Lilies! Oh, I’m so jealous. I love lilies! Shoutout to the people who lived there in the past for planting them for you! I think one of my favorite things about having a home where I’ll stay for a long time/forever some day will be the ability to plant perennials. I’d love to have plants that come back year after year instead of just being limited to annuals. (Not to mention it’d be a lot cheaper to not have to buy a garden full of flowers every spring!).

    • kilax says:

      Yes, I am grateful to whomever planted these! I wonder when they did it – well before the house was foreclosed or shortly before we bought it? You will love having perennials at a long term home! I’d love to see how you’d plan it all out!
