May 2013 – Let the Destruction Begin!!!!

Nothing too exciting going on this month.  I have a nice break from Tortuga, so that means time to get some work done around the house!

Sticking with the not very exciting theme, I’ve made my first trip (three of them actually) to an inert land fill.  Since I bought my house I’ve had a large stack of decorate concrete blocks and crappy pavers sitting on my carport.  Probably ten feet by twenty feet by six feet.  Finally decided to get rid of them.  Took three trips filling up my truck each time, but I got it done.  Carport looks much better now and better for hosting parties!

Also went to the NC Beer and Music Festival.  A bunch of regional bands, and probably 30 different craft breweries.  They also had one very large tent for home brewers.  Definitely a lot of delicious brew there.  Including a ginger cider that I fell in love with.  We definitely need to make sure we make it out for the full day next year.

Also started demolition work on my house.  Once upon a time there was a fireplace in the living room.  The previous owner took it out and put in a crappy built-in entertainment center.  The original plan was to take out the entertainment center and cover up the wall.  This would make the living room look better and give me a pantry in my kitchen again.  However, plans got more ambitious.  I’m now going to take out a wall and put in an island.  #ProjectCreep

Also got ready for the Siouxland Renaissance Festival.  I flew out on the last day of the month, so you have to wait until next month to hear how that trip went!!
