What we did on our summer vacation, part 4

Last part. I think. We’re in August, which is the best month because that is my birthday month. Best. Month.

So what did we do in August? Not a whole lot (sensing a theme here?). It finally got a little warmer in August (although nothing like normal), so we slowed down on work upstairs, and started planning work for the fall. We got quotes from drywallers, had the gutters cleaned, started looking for arborists, and spent a week celebrating my birthday.

Here we are on our way to Cedar Point (or maybe Put-in-Bay), where Sarah and I jointly celebrated turning an undisclosed number:

There was also one last trip to Hot Doug’s.

But in terms of the house, this was probably the most exciting thing:

We are awningless! At least in the front. The one over the back door is staying, since it’s nice to have when you’re coming in that way in the rain. But the amount of difference it makes in the living room is astounding. It is sooooo much brighter in there. Sadly that means you can really see all the cracks in the walls. But that’s a project for the winter.
