beet greens, basil, and cruise control, anyone?
Public
I just ordered a DIY cruise control kit for my Yaris, since Toyota insists on pretending there is no cruise control option for my "entry-level" car. Who wants to help me install it? How about a keyless entry system?

I finally got my garden in today, merely a month and a half late. I also got some rubber hose washers and fixed the leaks in the automatic sprinkler system I put in last month so I can be lazy about watering and still have vegetables in the end. Check out the amazing nasturtiums!


Lastly, I took advantage of having the house to myself and ... cleaned it. For those who didn't make it to the housewarming party, here's what the three main rooms look like with all of our stuff in them:

I thought you had a keyless entry system already...

Ha!

Speaking of windows, it turns out that there is no off-brand replacement window that fits the Yaris correctly. It took three tries and lots of rippled window rubber for the glass company to figure this out and just order an official Toyota window for me (all for free, since it was all under warranty). I almost feel sorry for them ...

I'm glad to see that the table is working out. It hasn't been kept unfolded in a long time.

It hadn't arrived yet. ;~) But it does fold down to a tiny size -- approximately 3 by 4 feet!

Holy smokes, that's beautiful! I wish I could have gone, were I not at least 400 miles away at the time... :-)

But worry not, as soon as the bookcases get here and the piles of books turn into a library, I'll post pictures of my apartment, too.
