  • Mood:

Slippery slope to suburban bliss...

For the first time since I bought the townhouse, I put up lights.

It helped that

  • Orchard had blue and white "twin-cicle" lights that don't look like all my neigbors

  • Orchard also had a quick-and-easy Light Tacker staple gun, so I could get them all up in about 45 minutes

  • We've only got about 35 feet of visible eaves on the front of the place

Unfortunately, 2 strings only cover about 3/4 of the front of the house (and don't wrap around the corner at all). I'll have to go add a third string tomorrow!

(pix later!)

Happy Holidays
