I've posted a couple of little polls on the left side of the page and I hope you will indulge me and take a minute to give me your feedback through the polls or by leaving a comment here - it would be a big help! I know there are about 100 of you each week who have come to take a peek at Farmers Market Fridays but only one person has linked up a post so I'd like to know what's missing.
We kicked off summer in style on Friday, starting with a before school breakfast at our favorite little breakfast diner. On Thursday night, my daughter and I made a double batch of no-bake cookies for her classmates and teachers.
For a grand total of $23 I got: a working air hockey table with paddles and pucks, a stainless steel sink complete with all the fixtures and an extra deep sink on one side (this will be hooked up to the existing sink plumbing in the laundry room for me to use for laundry and projects), a brand new chain link gate to replace one that was missing at the new house, a like-new brushed stainless steel light fixture with 3 glass light covers that match the new ones I put in the house, a little white medicine cabinet/shelf for my daughter to use in her room for knickknacks, and a little glass light cover with roses on it that will become garden art for the fairy garden. (You'll see pictures of all these goodies coming up in future posts!)
We celebrated the end of another school year with a trip to Chuck E. Cheese and had a lot of fun playing games with the kids. Mom and Dad have been really busy with all that has to be done to get this house ready and work and all the normal stuff on top of it so we have been trying to make sure we set aside some time in the crazy to just focus on being with the kids and doing something fun. It really makes a big difference in their attitudes and willingness to help the rest of the time and gives us all something to look forward to as a reward for the hard work.
