Saturday...Practice, Practice

My exciting Saturday has included band practice (for nearly 6 hours), cleaning up stuff, planting two peach trees (Yay - $7 each at Sam's!), and cleaning out leftovers from the refrigerator.

According to the movie, Bowie and James Audubon, the bird enthusiast, were best buds. ( I haven't checked on this yet, but a quick reading of Audubon's Wikipedia entry doesn't show that...although I was surprised to find out he was born in Haiti, lived in France, and only became an American citizen later in life.)

I can hear your envious sighs now. 

Lots of work downstairs awaits tomorrow. We're really hoping that the mold will be treated on Monday, and the carpet pulled out downstairs. Stay tuned...and have a restful weekend.
