You're supposed to live with your yard for a year before making any changes, but there was a big bare spot in front where a rotting crabapple had been removed. We put flowers in it yesterday and this morning we planted a bunch of vegetables in a bed in the back yard. I don't have a lawn mower, so a guy is going to cut our grass every Friday.
As soon as Victoria finishes changing clothes for the third time today, we are off to finish today's errands. Last night was the first night we slept in the house. It's very dark and quiet at night. I tried the whole house fan. Wow! Not quiet at all, but very effective.
