Aren't holiday weekends wonderful? When a holiday falls on a weekend, you get more time to "catch up" on all those projects that have "waited and waited" for so long. You also get to spend some quality time doing things you enjoy with people you like spending time with. I took time off of work to make this weekend into a four day mini vacation and it has been great!
The kitchen remodeling is now, almost, complete. We measured, cut, stained and attached all the door frames in the kitchen and mud room. What a difference it makes, the kitchen looks terrific! I'll post a few pictures so you can see, once the window frames are stained (hoping to get to that this afternoon).
Saturday was spent at Old World Wisconsin for their July 4th celebrations, early 1900's style. When is the last time you had a three legged race or tried to climb a greased pole? What about the last time you watched a parade with no motorized vehicles, just horse drawn carriages and people walking? The weather cooperated, the mosquitoes enjoyed their feast (on all the people there), the food was great (brats, lemonade, cookies, etc.) and the walking was peaceful. Every time we go there, I feel kind of "renewed" and refreshed. If you want to check them out sometime: http://www.oldworldwisconsin.org/.
