Oh Christmas tree...well, sort of

Originally uploaded by mdesive.

After a drive home through the snow which took twice as long as usual, we pulled into the drive and Ashley yells "We have a tree!" My first thought was, "Duh, we put it up last week!" Then I looked in the yard. I have no idea what KIND of tree it is...guess we'll find out later when it's not dark...and snowing...and leaf-less.

So I spend waaaay to much time at Flickr now

I found some pictures of a subway car done up like a Deadwood saloon. If you scroll through the photos, you'll see even the seats are made to look as if they're upholstered, even though they're still the hard plastic seats. Pretty cool.

My Little Pig Sty

Okay, it's not MY pig sty. I wish I even had my desk in the house! (hint, hint hubby!) This is somebody else's photo on Flickr has this thing where you can draw little squares around things and label them, and, well, this person went kinda gung ho! It just tickled me, so I had to post it! Click on the photo to see what I mean. (And I'll go lie down after using so many exclamation points...)

We have sod!

I stayed home today to recover from all the moving and the unpacking and the unpacking and the unpacking....I took a nice long nap for the morning and when I woke up this afternoon, there was a truckload of sod sitting outside! We now have a lawn! It was too dark by the time they finished laying the sod, though, so I'll have to take pictures before I leave for work -- if I can see it. It's supposed to snow tomorrow...sigh. Oh well, it means Mother Nature will do my work for me and I won't have to water it that whole first day. :o)
