Almost two weeks and not a word…It has become a standoff between me and the computer at home. I walk by the dreary office, that desperately needs some attention, and quickly shut the door so the computer does not stare back at me with that judgemental look. I feel like I am failing with all of my blogging plans. I really enjoy writing about our projects, and sharing them here. It just seems that there are not enough hours in the day to work on the projects, take photos, edit, write posts in order to really do my DIY projects a justice. Despite this “feeling sorry for myself since I don’t have time to blog” post, Summer has been wonderful! We decided that this year we would really try to take advantage of the late nights and long weekends. This pact meant that we actually had to be spontaneous…two engineers=lot’s of planing, therefore spontanaity is often lacking.

Keeping with the spirit of being exicting people who jetset around the world (In our dreams)… Two weekends ago we went to Seattle (post to come – I swear – this one is written just waiting for photos). While we were there I got to make my own glass bowl at this glass blowing shop:

That’s me, twisting a steel pipe in a hot furnace with molten glass on the end. I decided that this was a fun experience, but a hobby I will not pursue! It was hotter than Lake Havasu in July, I left feeling looking like a hot mess!

Besides our mini vacay, we have been taking bike rides down to the beach, visiting family and friends and working on the front yard and top deck. Here are a few sneak peaks at my potted succulent creation:

This location is not the permanent home for these bad boys, but I have to finish some upper deck work before I can move them.

Alright, back to work. I wanted to write a quick post to say Hi and reaffirm that posts will be coming soon :)

Does anyone reading this feel like there is never enough time in the day?
