We continue to be busy around here. The boys have been helping me eliminate the English Ivy on our property. You can see how excited they are about starting. I took them to see Night at the Museum 2 after all that hard work. I think I know that summer is winding down and I'm trying to get all the projects finished around the house.
Mike finished painting our bedroom and since I just can't bring myself to spend $80 on cellular blinds I went to JAF and bought some fabric today. I want to do something like this. I also need to figure out what to put on the walls. Decisions, decisions. I still can't decide what to put up in the kitchen. I did find this little number today for a nook in the kitchen. I'm not even sure why I like it so much. My mom had a ton of these type of flower vases that I used to look through when I was a kid. Most of them were baby-theme related though.In other news....I finally cooked up some laundry detergent. I'll let you know if it actually works. Nolan wanted to know if I was having fun while making it. I informed him that I found the process enjoyable but not exactly what I'd call fun.
And finally, Nolan informed me that this little gal is a female stag beetle. You can tell by the shorter pinchers. Of course you can.
