I'm growing a beard. I'm doing this reluctantly. I've sported a circle beard before, in varying degrees of thickness. I prefer the clean-shaven look, but my facial skin is prone to rashes, especially with shaving. Over the xmas holidays, I was in Socal, on antibiotics, and ran out of shaving oil and aftershave. Since then, my face has yet to forgive me. Every time I take a razor to it, it breaks out into a hive of ingrown hairs and whiteheads. I stopped shaving hoping that the it would clear up (I've tried witch-hazel, hydrocortisone, triple-antibiotic ointment, and lavender face lotion. It still blimps up like I'm fifteen again. The only thing that seems to help it is if I don't touch it. So I'm forgone shaving for a while, and I'll see where this beard takes me.

Gresham Remodel: The plan

Here is a schematic of what we intend to add to our house. If you're familiar with our current house layout, you'll notice that we're adding on past the existing bedrooms a master bedroom, another bath, a walk-in closet, and a small office. What this schematic doesn't show is that the ceiling will be a pocket ceiling. And we intend to decorate the bathroom 1930s style. No decision has been made on what to paint in the new bedroom. Also, we are adding a quiet ceiling fan. If you have any recommendations, let me know.

Gresham Remodel

We're adding on a room to our house! One master bedroom, an additional bath, and a walk-in closet. So far all we have is a dirt pit in our backyard. Here's the photostream where I'll be posting the progress. http://www.flickr.com/photos/22586674@N00/sets/72157627597231165/


It's been hot here in the Bay Area, finally, and Tammy caught this photo of Kepler and me cooling off and laying low. This relaxing position I call Keplervasana.
