Not much to say, really. My job is still the same for the most part. There have been some unexpected personnel moves above me, but it hasn't affected me much so far.
Bull has fully integrated into the family, though Phoenix's nose still gets out of joint from time to time. I think it is good for her to have another dog in the house to keep her active and interested. A fourteen year old dog needs a reason to get up in the morning, even if that reason is to maintain her position as alpha in a pack of two.
A major advance in the renovation work completed this week. The fireplace is now stone all the way to the ceiling.
There is also new landscaping along the west side of the house that has me praying for rain on a daily basis so it doesn't have to be watered.
The big renovation push is coming soon, with lighting, paint, rebuilding of the pit, and more.
