The backyard is done! And just in the nick of time, right before my mother and stepfather's visit.
Here are a couple before and after shots:
Here are a few detail shots:
Mom and Stepdad's Visit
The week with my Mom and Stepfather went very well. It was so nice for them to finally see where we live. Lots happened that week. There was a neighborhood BBQ that happened to fall on the day after they arrived, we went to Mendocino for a nice overnight trip, we saw Beach Blanket Babylon with my cousin, her husband, and her stepdaughter, and basically ate like pigs.
Mendocino, CA is a quaint Northern California Coast town. I highly recommend it to anyone who is visiting or lives in the SF Bay area. We stayed at The Headlands Inn which was situated right in town. FANTASTIC!!! A MUST STAY!!! The house was cute, the rooms were very, very comfortable, the breakfast was out of this world, and the staff were top notch. I frankly want to retire there!!!
We took over 200 photos so I'll spare you the boring 'slide show' and only share a handful.

Breakfast Served in the Room (picture doesn't do this breakfast justice)
DJ, Me & Mom
It took all my energy to not buy a roll, run back to the B&B, take a big dump and wipe my ass with Bush's face! Any guesses on the type of store the TP was being sold in?
Knitting Project Update
I actually had a few fleeting moments to knit and finally finish one of my socks.
Hopefully it won't take me another 6 months to finish the 2nd. If only I could sit down and knit more often!
