This weekend, we decided to get our cheap on, hitting two (count 'em!) two garage sales. It was the first time I've ever done any serious yardsaling without a car, and I hope to never lie to you, dear readers, so I will say this particular car-free adventure did present some challenges. Imagine, for your pleasure, your favorite Sydneysiders carrying a picnic table and bench on our backs for several blocks. Then imagine us going to a second sale and walking back home again, this time with an office chair, a bag full of lampshades, and two trees. Haha! Delightful. It took us about six hours to get out of our neighborhood. I think I hurt myself. Anyway, our back patio is finally starting to shape up, but Craig still insists I call these "during" pictures.
The glorious picnic table:

Our two new trees: they are baby versions of the trees I mentioned earlier on the blog and are called Frangipani!
Our patio might be getting swank, but don't worry. We still keep it real – ATL-style – with our treacherous back steps:
For a closer look at our place, check us out on the ever-controversial Google Streetview!
Right! And while you're doing the bizarre things that Google has brought into our lives, check out the sofa that is (mysteriously) on our roof on Google Earth. It's baffling. We don't know how it got there or why. Craig tried to scramble up the wall onto our roof and only managed to bust his knee, so this might be definitive and long-awaited proof of alien existence.
Just a quick Home and Garden update for you today, dear readers. But watch out for tomorrow– Dinky on the town and Craig has a Golden Gaytime!!
