Outside Improvements - 2nd Installment

On to the back porch...

Some potted annuals:

A new light!

The old light, I think it was from the 1970's:

Not to brag, but Pier and I installed and hung this light all by ourselves. No electrition required!

We first turned off the main circuit breaker, then we took down the old light, then after about 9 attempts to wire the new light (I wish I took a picture of the wiring, it was ridiculously tricky!) we got it right and screwed it all together. The catch was we bought the last model of the light fixture we wanted and it was the display model, so it didn't come with instructions, making it tricky to put together. Regardless, we prevailed and the new light looks SO much better than the crappy old light that was there since the 19070's. We felt a great sense of accomplishment when we finished. We turned the circuit breaker back on, and the light came on and we both screamed with joy. Did I mentioned that we chose to do this at 11:00 at night? That MAY have added to the self-imposed difficulty of the entire project...just maybe...
