Hooray! The painting is complete on the north side of the house as well as the garage (which I did) so we can get our whopping $300 back from escrow. Of course, this doesn't nearly cover what we paid the painters but it will be nice to have all the FHA mortgage stipulations taken care of and done with. Maybe I'll use the $300 to buy paint for the cabinets in the kitchen and a new light.
I'm also including a photo of some flowers that just bloomed on the side of the garage. I figure I better take as many photos as I can before some loser comes by and picks those too.
