Counting the days


until Spring 2019 Arrives

Flower Bed and Light Post to be moved out of the walkway

Did you see them Rams last night? They were the real America’s Team. At least that’s what my brothers and sisters in Dallas were saying after that game last night. Hehehe. 

Alright, Alright. I know I was not happy with what the SeaHawks faced in Dallas the previous Saturday, against the Referees and the Cowboys. But I am kind of relief that none of them will face off with my PATS today. 

So instead of dwelling on what had transpired in Cali last night, let’s get down to business. 

Yesterday morning was surprisingly warm for this time of year and was pretty sunny too. I was Ubering early in the morning but my mind was in my front yard as I was ready to change the turf into something the cowboys won’t be able to handle, even with the referees working for them. Ooops, I did it again! 

Next thing I know, I was using my aerator to basically scrape off the grass. I wanted to take as much grass out as I can. 

The plan is to install a totally new Sprinkler/Irrigation System to have it ready for Amazon Alexa and to have it on full automation so I do not have to watch how much water used or needed. Hopefully Alexa will just fill me in on what needs to be done. Finger crossed. 

Second, I used a different type of grass in my backyard and it looked super dark green. I want that in my front yard, so I got to do it.  We’ll see if I can find the exact same grass seedings. 

Third, I am moving the light post on the south side further south to open up the walkway. The driveway itself is another project I am contemplating but that would be for 2020. Lots of thoughts had to go into that one, whether to use blocks or concrete slabs. We’ll see. 

Got lots of things done on a beautiful chilly morning here in the Pacific Northwest. 

And I am ready to cheer for them PATS!!!! 

Plans/Goals for 2019

Front Yard

Aeration and reseeding as well as moving the older light post and flower bed further south.


Pruning the apple tree, plant more fruit trees and cut down the other trees.

North Fence

Replace the old fencing on the North side of the building. Replace all the old posts as well.

Backyard Patio

Put the final touches including more pavers, the retaining wall and area for Island BBQ.


Oregon Coast Trip the minute tuna is brought to the shore. Can't wait.


Continue studying investment opportunities both in Oregon, Washington and Hawaii.

Spring 2018 Project


Temporary Deck Demolition

Yobo is taking the temporary deck apart so we can lay the foundation of the new deck.



I wouldn't even do this kind of planning if it weren't for the Inspection Requirements. It's just something that had to be done for safety and for a piece of mind.


Foundation of the New Deck

The foundation is almost completed awaiting final inspection from city officials.

About 400 Tuna Fish Left

Was sleeping and Chaz texted and woke me up! Chaz, see what you did? On a peaceful sunday? Hahaha. Not really. I was just surfing all morning long. Chaz was inquiring about the location of St. Jude and he found it. I am sure he got himself tuna and enjoyed a bowl of sashimi under that beautiful afternoon sun.

The Fijians brothers are here in Seattle and they brought lots of TUNA!

Tuna from the South Pasifik. Yes. They brought tuna from the South Pasifik. And many people might have been scared away thinking of that very very long line last year, so it is a perfect chance for you and your whole clan, whole village, whole island to walk straight up to the ship and get tuna of all sizes. The best thing is, it’s still that same cheap price of $3.50 per pound.
