House on a hill

We are buying a house!

Woohoo! We should be closing early December. I have to admit, I'm really enjoying thinking about revamping the yard and kitchen. I think for the yard, I want to put in a French Drain (because our neighbors house is at a higher elevation, and all the rain in Seattle will make my hill soggy), and I want to terrace our backyard slope to make great areas to grow my veggies and cutting garden. I've already decide I need a cherry tree, apple tree, italian plum tree, lilac tree, some roses, hydrangeas, lots of lavender, and seasonal veggies and herbs. I also want to install a new stone patio (in place of the backyard lawn). I've been going through back issues of Better homes and gardens to look for remodeling and gardening ideas before I recycle them all.

Yay home! And I'll get to take Buddie (the family dog)! He'll love it in Seattle--it's such a dog town.
