Basement Flooding – Part 2

As I was researching basement flooding, one article said “make sure your gutters are all aimed away from your foundation – often this can be the cause of your basement flooding”.  Lo and behold, when I got home from work today, I realized that the gutter directly over the leak was pointed straight at the foundation – d’oh!

Basement Flooding – Part 1

When I first moved into the condo in 2012, the basement barely got wet during huge, multi-day rain storms.  Now our cage starts flooding within 20 minutes of heavy rain fall.  I knew the water was coming in somewhere along the wall in the far, right corner of our cage, behind all the shelving.

Birdie Update #4

In my last post I mentioned that Birdie has adopted my girl cave workbench as her new spot. The other night I witnessed her attempting to jump up onto it herself and realized a cat platform would come in very handy. I ended up re purposing one of the upstairs hall cat platforms.

A Pet Update

I need to offload some of the adorable pet photos I’ve been obsessively taking over the past 5 weeks – I’ve seriously taken almost 300 photos! I have narrowed them down to my 39 favorites.

I’ve Been A Busy Beaver

Since last posting, I’ve been very busy! But not with projects. Over the past 3 weeks I spent a long weekend visiting my brother and his family in Arlington, Virginia, I attended my first bar mitzvah, I celebrated my 5th wedding anniversary, my laptop died, my Instagram was disabled, and Bonkers was diagnosed with chronic kidney failure. At least the gardens are growing!
