It’s A Banner Day!

A new banner for The Petch House Blog. It’s something I’ve been thinking about doing for a while but inspiration never struck. I think the new paint job on the house has given me renewed inspiration so I played around with a few things today.

I now have to figure out how to get the new banner to appear on the HouseBlogs web ring. They’re getting so big these days with all the national attention in the press. I’m probably going to have to fill out some form in triplicate and submit it to the HouseBlogs World Headquarters. It will then go through several design review committees until it’s finally approved. No doubt I’ll have to grease a few palms along the way. How else can they afford the palatial corporate campus for HouseBlogs out in Chicago.

I did the new banner instead of cleaning carpets in the apartment over the garage. I just wasn’t in to it. I also forgot to tell the tenant I would be going in to the apartment. I’m supposed to give her 24 hours notice before entering. She has pretty much moved out, so I know she wouldn’t care. Still, this is what I tell myself so I don’t feel lazy.

I didn’t give her notice so I can’t clean the carpets. Really, I want to, but I just can’t. My hands are tied on this one.

My other goal for the day is to do some stripping on the porch trim. We’ll see if I get to it.

HAH! Our palatial corporate campus is sadly in need of mowing. And weeding.

LOVE the new banner. I'll have Aaron change it as soon as he gets back from the store. :)

Done and done. (The committee is out on vacation so I just uploaded it without bothering with the normal review process.)

Boy, talk about fast service! I guess there are some internet heavy-weights out there who still remember the little guy after all.

Greg: Good job on the house! Big hassle though. Did renovation on house in Henderson Center a few years back. Now a rental.

Thanks for the comment.

Hmmm, I guess it’s only a hassle if you don’t enjoy it. I’m having the time of my life.
