Love our new popsicle makers. Under $10 with prime shipping on Amazon. The handles are very sturdy. They are a bit large for our kids, I am ordering more in a smaller size. The price is less than the 4 boxes of the Aldi popsicles that we have already consumed this year.
Or maybe she just wanted me to pay for her lunch, and spend my gas money--either way, I'll take it=)
I got a whole stack of teacher resources, workbooks, and Explode the Code. Several Abeka readers, and lots of historical fiction.
A nice man approached me at Aldi recently. He explained that, in memory of the Sandy Hook kids, he had committed to 26 random acts of kindness. He asked me if we would accept $10 towards groceries or something for my kids. OF COURSE I will! So after dragging kids around to thrift stores, they were treated to Arby dollar shakes!, and everyone was a happy camper.
Remember the front door I lamented over last year, and HD took 3 special orders to get?
Did I ever show it to you?
BUT--This week I finally got around to doing the faux finish here!
And so does the back door (still need to razor blade the edge of the glass).
I need to do more catch up blogging, but this has to be it for now.
BTW- Jake drove from Pensacola to Huntsville--as in TEXAS--today. He has a job interview with the prison system on Monday, and then will be driving home for the rest of his 1 week summer break.
We've joked about it over the years, whenever someone is hurt, they go see Dr. Hurley, Dr. Hurley diagnosed my fibromyalgia, and found the correct doctor to send me to, etc.
Isn't that one of Barney's songs ? Thankfully, I'm out of the loop when it comes to purple dinosaurs.
Playground mulched--done. We only have one more section of the "natural area" to mulch, a few more hours of bucket brigade.
Put permanant spindles on pool handrail. Finish lettuce hydroponics. Clean out garage. Stain porch.
Pressure wash driveway. By the time all of this gets done, along with all the regular stuff, we will hopefully be up to our eyeballs in tomatoes and beans=).
