Weekly Recap #26 and #27


{June 27 through July 3, 2016}
{July 4 through July 10, 2016}

General

  • We had a bad storm come through June 28th bringing high winds, lightning and a power outage that lasted two hours. The winds sheared off some shingles on our roof. Dan was up early the next morning repairing our roof and I blogged about it here.
  • We went out of town July 1stand spent the Fourth of July with some of my family at a lake. I got to see nieces and nephews along with their children. It was a chaotic and happy time.

    By the way, while traveling to and from the lake, we stopped at a few antique stores. I also ended up at a Bernina dealer and fabric shop where I found some fabrics at 50% off. How could I resist? The trip home is normally about four hours. We were on the road for ten hours! We stopped in Huntsville, Navasota, Brenham, and La Grange.

  • One of my brothers and his wife came out to our place late on July7th for a long weekend. The guys spent the vast majority of their mornings and early afternoon putting on the roof to the barn while we ladies went junking and antiquing in nearby towns/cities. We also went to a community wide garage sale where my sister-in-law landed a coffee table for $5.00! I think all of us had a good time.
  • I started Wii Fit and did that for several days. I decided just before we left for the holidays that I will dump Wii Fit because I was bored. Instead, I will do Active Wii once again.
