*1*This week: cut and rolled chain link we pulled out of the paddock. Gave away everything we could to whomever would take it and then gifted the left-overs from garage sale to Savers.
Stripped, sanded, stained and primed more 12"kickboard and doors. Worked on reviews.
Took our yearly haul of trash to the city dump. $32 for a family of 6/5. One suburban + 1 small trailer worth of trash, for the year. We burn and compost the rest, buy in bulk and local and frankly, really like the idea of leaving a small environmental footprint. I'm thinking of starting a blog: The Crunchy Con Chronicles, just to find other Crunchy Cons to celebrate the little things with. Whaddya' think?
*2*From my blogger buddy Marcy; a great list of advice on how Decreasing your stress in the new homeschool year
The 4 Best Days of Summer happened this week; The longest running county fair in the Territories. Our state has just over 1/2 million inhabitants. 100,000 show up for our little county fair. Which rocks. Flower's name was picked in the free kitties drawing (actually mine was- she put every one's name in about 5 times). She was one happy fair going girl!
Reading Never Give In; The Extraordinary Character of Winston Churchill by George Grant this week. Love George Grant. Love Churchill. And yes, I love reading.

This might have to happen. Right after we finish the trim and paint the basement floor.
Speaking of doors- we have a few extras, complete with solid brass handles and I'm loving the look of this:
I even have a GREAT place for it to go.
How'd your week go?
