Odds N' Ends

I haven't had a chance to post in a while, so here are a few bits and pieces from the last few weeks. First, an example of the "rats" our neighbor across the street (who works from home) insists that he keeps seeing in our yard. We've never seen any rats, but we do see lots of rabbits, and I think this must be the Rabbit Clan Granddaddy. No wonder Tucker is afraid to go out at night alone!

I do love the variety of wildlife we see here in our yard. We're a lot farther out "in the country" than we used to be - about 25 miles out of the city center. We also have a little fish pond in the backyard now, as well as a lot of trees on the property, so we get all kinds of birds, rabbits, chipmunks, frogs, squirrels and of course the fish in the pond. Unfortunately, the only "less friendly" creatures we've seen here have been distinctly "closer to home" - I will have to say I wasn't exactly comforted to find a huge (at least three feet) snakeskin lying right outside the backdoor when we first moved in, and we have found scorpions in our closet on at least two occasions... but so far humans and wildlife seem to be getting along pretty well :-)

Speaking of wild things, over Memorial Day Weekend Tucker got to have my Dad's dog, Max over for company. Dad and Sheri came down to visit and enjoy the new digs in the basement, and Tuck and Max enjoyed chasing each other around the house and stealing toys from each other. Here they are, and you'll see Max staring at Tucker's toy while Tuck is looking at the camera :-)

Finally...the basement project is almost done!

I suppose I should really wait until we're actually completely done with the decorating and that kind of thing, but I'm honestly so excited to have the contractors gone from the house and everything usable that I can't help sharing!

For all of our loving friends and family who've had to listen to us complain for the last six months about contractors and construction, I finally have some pictures to offer.

For those who are here in Atlanta, come on over anytime and we'll promise to have your favorite beverages on hand! :-)

There are a few different views I'll post. My photography isn't the greatest (and the lighting is funky downstairs) so I apologize that the lighting looks funny in some of the shots. But you'll get the basic idea.

Things like the shower doors and a couple of other details aren't up yet, but we're hoping to be completely done soon.

Hope you enjoyed the virtual tour! :-)
