This week I did my very first link up! It's about "our song" and if you want to share the story of your song with us head on over and link it up! :) There's already been some super cute additions so I know you want to join the ranks! If you don't have time today the link up is open until Wednesday.

My big project this week has been turning a dresser hutch into a bookcase. I saw something similar are pinterest but it was really a dresser so they changed the knobs and painted it. This SOB-ing hutch was a little more difficult because I had to find a board that would go on the bottom and not look ridiculous. That proved harder than I was thinking so we just went with a board that fits and hopefully the paint makes it look okay. I'll let you know if it looks really ridiculous or just kind of.
|I have done something similar to this. Let's |
hope it doesn't happen again.
Other than my big bookcase project, I've been trying to scratch some other things off my Pinterest list. I made some laundry detergent today, made homemade chicken broth and chicken enchiladas, made a bathroom cleaner with vinegar so I could clean the bathroom, and made some bacon egg and cheese biscuits to put in the freezer. I tried the whole 'bake your bacon so it's healthier" thing which is a crock. Yeah, the fat renders out but the bacon just sits in it which is delicious but by no means healthier. I have the weekend left for projects, any suggestions for fantastic freezer food, cleaners, or bacon recipes?
Yesterday a couple of older women came knocking on my door to talk to me about anger and why there was so much of it in the world. When I reached out to grab the magazine they were waving around to give me, I saw the phrase "Watchtower" on the second magazine they conveniently sneaked behind the "anger" one. Just when I was about to say "Alright, thanks. Bye bye now." They asked me if I knew about true Christianity. Ok sneaky old women, if you want to play this game then let's have at it. I responded "I'm Catholic. I already know about true Christianity." To which she fired back "Well, we'll be back after you read our pamphlet to answer your questions then." Oh I hope they do come back. I spent the afternoon highlighting things in their pamphlet and cross referencing them to other verses in my bible. Bring it on lady (who is conveniently named Mary!)
