Dishwasher? Check!

July 22, 2010

Last night, after Comic-Con (of course!), I finished installing the dishwasher.  Hooray!

Sprinklers are nearly done

July 19, 2010

This weekend, Crisha and I made a lot of progress on the sprinklers.

We built a manifold for the four valves that we’ll start with. We still need to run the funny pipe and drip irrigation and program the sprinkler timer. We hope to get the rest done in the next week or so.

We also mounted a garden hose on the fence. And, I was able to re-use a 1/2 in. shut-off valve, so that I can turn off all the sprinkler valves (should something go horribly wrong), while keeping the garden hose charged.

Bazinga! 😉

Yesterday, Crisha and I celebrated our One Year Anniversary.

I love you, babe! 🙂

new location

I’m excited to say that this blog is moving to MarkAndCrisha.com.

I’m also hoping that Crisha and I will be a bit more active than I have been over the last … long while.

Sprinkler progress

July 14, 2010

It was a little harder to start than I anticipated, but I’ve busted out most of the cement around the water bib next to the strawberry plants. I plan to install sprinkler valves and drip irrigation to water the vegetables and plants along this side of the house.

Yesterday, I was able to pull a string between the carport attic and the house attic, over the carport doors. I’m excited to be able to pull cables through there. I’m thinking about putting phone and maybe data ports in the carport closet, as well as pull a control line from the garage door opener into the house — and, of course, sprinkler lines from the controller in the laundry room out to the strawberries.
