Wow! Summer seemed to be a whirlwind that was here and gone in a hurry. I'll keep it short and simple...
*June...Kitchen flooded. (Dishwasher is to blame.)
No big deal, right?
Can you say Asbestos?
Apparently it was underneath the sopping wet, flooded hardwood floors. The sub flooring in my house had asbestos in it. We had to hire a company to safely remove the flooring down to the bare bones. Yeah...I could see the ceiling of the basement in my kitchen.
*My son kicked a soccer ball through the kitchen window...ouch!
Time to replace the window anyway, right! lol.
*July...Good News...excuse to remodel!
Don't worry that the floors were only 3 years old and I kinda liked 'em. We had a major mess on our hands!!! What use to be hardwood is now a beautiful tiled kitchen. What use to be a wall that divided the kitchen from the living room...GONE. I now have wide open spaces. A nice new pantry made it's home in place of the wall.
*My son broke his nose while we were on our family vacation. Another OUCH!
I think this is the 1st school year that I have welcomed it with Open Arms. Life seems to be somewhat back to normal for now. (knock on wood.)
Be Back Very Soon.

The other day, I was doing just that. I had my pile of clothes to give to charity. I have an old sweatshirt that always makes it to the pile, but I can't seem to part w/ it. Just before it's time to send it out...I tell myself...I bought this when I was 1st dating my husband. Now it has become this silly sentimental shirt that I never, ever wear. Here comes the Upcycle part.
11 year old sweatshirt that serves no purpose.
In the works...
*I cut the arms off of the sweatshirt & cut into 2 rectangle shapes.
*Used some fabric leaves from a rag quilt I made. Stitched them onto the front piece for a little added flair.
After...the new look.

I'll be transplanting these seedlings outdoors in the late spring. My Grandpa always told me to be patient & wait until Memorial Day to do any kind of gardening outdoors. Gosh, It's so hard to wait...especially because I just know it's going to warm up any day now! *ahem...yes, Mother Nature, that's a nudge.*

I picked up some seeds at the store the other day. Thought I would give it a try instead of buying the flowers already grown and ready to transplant. I love poppies, so I'm excited to incorporate them into my flower beds.
Be sure to set your clocks ahead one hour tonight...."Spring Forward."

I have a wonderful book, Clay Characters for Kids by Maureen Carlson. It has step by step instructions on how to create all kinds of fun things with clay.
Here's the recipe we used...
How sad...It looks like this 'dude' had some bad plastic surgery!
