Making new friends

We often complain about Rexx being antisocial. It seems he made a friend.

When donkey first moved in it was not so nice.
Rexx was very fussy but nowadays, he admires from afar.

Kitchen Wish List

I am falling in love with my kitchen more and more everyday.
Especially because its a big DIY project.
We (I) fix it up when we can, but there are still those small details.

It seems like I have changed everything but the kitchen sink....
but I would if I could.
I have always dreamed of a farmhouse kitchen sink.

I try to take things too seriously.
A little bit of whimsy never hurt anyone, right?
This might look like any old fork, but its 4 FEET TALL!
I'm not sure where it would go but its too cute.

If you change the sink, it only makes sense to change the faucet, right?
Well, ours is very shallow. So a nice, vintage tall faucet would be nice :)

I already have this one, but it was on my wish list before. I just thought that it was very cafe-ish. I got it at IKEA.

I know, I know, I don't need these things and life will go on without them.
Its just fun to play with ideas :)

Friends of the Library

I feel like a Wacoan, when we have annual events that we look forward to.
One of our favorite annual events is the Book Sale. It is a benefit for the Waco Libraries. It gathers donated books all year and sell them at this annual event. It starts on Thursday and runs till Sunday evening. Everyday there are different deals.

Thursday - $5.00 entry fee all books $1.50 or less (even hardbacks)
Friday - no entry fee; all books under $1.50
Saturday - no entry fee; all books under $1.50
Sunday morning - $10.00 per bag
Sunday evening - $10.00 all you can carry! + a reusable grocery bag to fill.

We went on Sunday afternoon and even though we felt late, we still made out like bandits.
29 books for $10.00!

Next year though, we will donate some before we go. We are running out of room already!

Sorry for the blogging break. That would be due to the fact that there was nothing going on, except for studying! And that doesn't make for exciting posts.
I had a huge exit test that I had to take in order to graduate. I think it went well. So back to your regularly scheduled programming.....
