Our housemates had a pumpkin carving party again. Lots of interesting pumpkins happened this year. I carved a fake foam “carvable pumpkin” that was actually pretty neat. (More photos at photos.)
But this weekend was house things! Austin was awesome and drove us to Home Depot yesterday, where we proceeded to spend over $200 on things like hedge clippers, garden hoses, gardening gloves, a step stool, brooms, buckets, dryer things, and other house stuffs. We spent the day cleaning the first floor rooms, as it unfortunately rained most of the day.
Today the rain stopped, and the awesome David, who lives at the other end of our street, loaned us his manual lawnmower and battery-powered weed whacker, and we had a pretty fun day mowing, trimming trees, and generally doing yardwork. My big accomplishment was reconnecting the dryer exhaust pipe and hooking up our new flexible dryer tube to it, to replace the old solid pipe that had fallen off and dumped lint everywhere (including inside the wall where the pipe had also detached). That was fun.
Yay for home ownership?
