Something you rarely see on my blog, birds! I'm just not a bird aficionado but this one was just begging for his picture to be taken. Embarrassingly I have no idea what kind it is but I'm sure one of the experts at Wild Bird Wednesday will know!
A super cute set of "Story of the Earth" bracelets
7 in all...you can wear all 7 or however many you like...I like to wear all 7!
Plus it came with this adorably sweet little book:
I ordered this through a company called Uncommon Goods. When I was browsing their website I really loved the fact that I could read about each artist/designer right there with their wares. CLICK HERE to see my bracelet and read about the artist.
When my package arrived I noticed the envelope it was packed in and thought "I need to order more stuff from this company because I like their packaging!" ha, seriously, I love the simple style of it, it really appealed to me.
Uncommon Goods also donates $1 with each purchase to the non-profit of your choice. How awesome is that?!
Something else I like about this company is that it is housed in the old historic Brooklyn Army Terminal...you know how much I love old buildings! Plus their lowest paid workers start at 50% above minimum wage...take that WalMart lol
I couldn't sleep last night. I know I must have slept a little because I woke up from a weird dream where I had donated a pair of my uncles boots to Goodwill, and they were good boots and I knew he would be mad. I was going to go get them back when he came home early...strange since I haven't seen or spoke to my uncle in YEARS..where do these dreams come from anyway....
I have to take Christian to the dentist this morning for a root canal. Poor guy. Hoping it goes smoothly for him!
"A destination hotel through the early 1900's, it also served as the Federal Courthouse. The brick building was built after the great fire of 1870 which started in the hotel stable. The earlier hotel was a wooden structure." ...taken from Historic Fincastle ...linking with Signs, Signs
Sunday was a beautiful spring day so I took a walk through Godwin Cemetery in Fincastle. I noticed this old truck, with a fence in front! Linking with Signs, Signs
I'm back! I took an improptu blogging break last week. We were on spring break and I had fun things planned to do with the boys. Well Braden ended up sick for the first half, nothing major, just a terrible sore throat and really no energy...then my computer monitor went black. I had read on something that Windows updates will go in and automatically change your monitor settings to make it sleep...I unplugged it for a while and when I turned it back on it worked, sketchily but enough that I could get into the settings and it was set to sleep after 20 minutes so following the advice I read I switched it to never. But now I'm afraid to turn it off! It has been on since Friday...computer gurus, is it ok to let your monitor just stay on and on and on?
