Taming the island


Sunday 15th November 2009

An interesting week.  Started it in Paris on Monday morning and was glad to be back home (although not to be apart) and got home to discover that phase one of the landscape project had taken place.  The untamed jungle island in front of the house was in need of some treatment so the first phase to clear that of miscellaneous weeds and put down azaleas and pine straw was under way.  Thanks to a very soggy Tuesday, it was completed later in the week and does look remarkably better than it did before.  My neighbour who is retired and spends his days working on his garden is probably quite delighted.  Next year will see phase two (the back).  That will be a much larger undertaking.

Taming the Island


As I write, it’s officially the tenth anniversary of the formation of Silverpop – we had a company 10th anniversary celebration at the Georgian Club on Wednesday which was very enjoyable.  I believe without prompting, we received a congratulatory letter from the state Governor.  So there was cake for that, and again on Thursday for Bill’s birthday (our CEO).  Quite a week for eating things that are bad for one.

Is this a cat?


Feeling decidedly crappy by Friday (not the swine flu) and was delighted to start the day with a trip to the foot doctor for an interesting case of plantar fasciitis (which google wants to change to Fascist) – so a couple of cortisone injections in the foot and it’s all good.  Well, it will be after the next couple of injections and a few weeks of exercising it with a frozen water bottle (don’t ask).

Feeling better today so I spend an hour putting up insulation strips on the garage doors which will make the basement a warmer place during the winter (and perhaps more pleasant in the summer too).   They were remarkably simple to put up and we’ll see when it gets cold here just how effective they will be.

The door project - complete


Hopefully this will be a relatively quiet week and I can also get some photography done.  Other than cats or leaves or that new rosemary bush I bought.

Have a fun week.
