Lots of January Upgrades

Post date: Jan 18, 2011 8:16:19 PM

Jeff and I have been busy making upgrades to the apartment during the month of January. Here are some of the things that we have added ...

    • A new digital SAFE for your laptop, passport, extra cash, etc. We found the perfect spot for this in the top shelf of one of our closets. You'll be able to set your own combination for the safe when you get here.

    • A vanity shelf and framed mirror in the bathroom. Now one person can be busy at the sink, while the other person can be busy adjusting hair style, make-up, etc, using the new vanity shelf and framed mirror.

    • A floor length mirror for the hallway (on the outside of the bathroom door). Now, if the bathroom is occupied, you can easily make adjustments to your outfit. Added bonus: when you open the bathroom door, you can check out the back of your hair style, using the new mirror on the door, along with the new mirror on the wall in the bathroom.

    • New plants for front patio area. I'll post pictures soon!

    • New solar-powered lights to illuminate the pathways in the back patio area at night.

    • A new mechanical food chopper for the kitchen

    • Another bamboo cutting board for the kitchen

    • A cloth-lined wicker basket, to better organize the organic lotions, soaps, shampoos, and other incidentals that we provide in the bathroom closet

    • A new scale that measures weight and body-fat percentage. (If you don't want to know, just leave it stowed in the bathroom cabinet!)

We also found some fantastic locally produced preserves (made with whole fruit, and only half the sugar that is normally found in jams & jellies) at the Ferry Building Farmer's Market last weekend. Our guests in Spring 2011 will have the chance try at least one of these wonderful flavors ... Meyer Lemon, Boysenberry, Strawberry, and Raspberry.
