Sorry again for the lack of posting. I always mean to post, but there's just so much going on. For one, my desktop computer's harddrive died during a thunderstorm (and my surge-strip didn't protect it), so I finally have it back and don't have to work from my old, weird laptop (yay!). However, I lost many of my photos and music, and I feel like I lost a bit of my history with it. It's really...annoying and depressing.
We've also been working on the house. We're doing two open-house/house warming parties in August, so we want it in as close to tip-top-shape as we can get. And, well...there's lots to be done.
I've also been baking, but mostly for orders from friends, not for pleasure.
So here's a tidbit of what's going on in Casa Tree-and-Jake:
Newly painted and full bookcase in the den:
Old floors that were hiding under the carpet in the master bedroom:
Newly refinished floors and painted walls:
Baby shower cake with a tropical theme:
Cherry almond breakfast rolls with vanilla bean cream cheese icing:
I've also been trying to find time to hang out with friends and family before school starts in a month. So I'm sorry I'm being a bad blogger and staying away, but life is a little crazy for me lately. Work has also been crazy, so when I come home to escape, I've been diving my nose into a book and leaving it there (when I should really be working on taping off and painting the living and dining rooms before we pull up that carpet to redo the floors). I hope to keep peeking in and out, and not lose you all.
So please bear with me, I'm not lost in the static yet! :)
