Weekend in review

If you live anywhere near St Louis you are well aware that our weather right now is AMAZING. Mid 70's in July! Unbelievable.

So we have been keeping ourselves plenty busy outside.
We went to the local baseball game.
And Jack refused to show you his face.
He also refused to make nice with the mascot. (Who is pouting in that photo.)

And refused to sit Or follow directions. Or act like a human.

But whatever. He is completely full of anxiety right now.
And today he and Daddy spent 3 hours building a giant K'nex roller coaster.
Which was mostly fun and not mostly tense, and Jack loves the finished product.

I also found a metric TON of good junk this weekend, which I am anxious to share, but we are seriously mired in some nasty stuff over here right now. This has been a bad year for us all around, and we are getting tired and quite frankly near the edge of insanity ourselves. We ALL really need to find ourselves on the other side of this black cloud and sooner rather than later. :-(

Be back soon with other stuff I hope...

P.S. The contact paper is vintage. Ever since I found it two years ago I have spent a little time every month or so trying to find more good vintage contact paper with ZERO success. The brand is magic cover, if that helps anyone. Sorry I can't point you to a place to buy some. You can see some of the other places I have used it here . (I also put it in some of my kitchen cabinets but for some reason that isn't showing up in the search.)


  1. Oh, I hope your black cloud blows over soon. It's so hard to live like that and keep your sanity. I know you've had a rough go of it lately and I'm sending virtual hugs your way.

    The K'nex rollercoaster is awesome! I used to love playing with that with my nephews. They would build ferris wheels, bicycles, etc. and all of them worked/moved. It was so cool!

    Hope you have a good week!

  2. Thinking of you. It was nice chatting with you today. You and your family will be in my thoughts. (((HUGS)))
