After spending last week in Michigan with The Mama, I flew back this morning...only to head straight to the elections building with The Brick. We both have jobs working for the election board -- nothing exciting, but it helps pay the bills, and gives us an extra cushion in savings.
Worship Team -- plus doing a second Worship Team gig for a friend -- and putting away a ton of hunting and quilting stuff will fill in any extra gaps. I made apple crisp tonight, from some of the 25 pounds of apples brought home from Michigan. That made The Brick very happy. (Here's my recipe, in case you're interested.)
In addition, a South American acquaintance is stopping by this week, to pick up all the tricks and techniques I can jam into a day about quilt dating and restoration.
It will take work and careful scheduling, but it's worth it, just being able to be HOME.

'Things I find in the garbage:' a fascinating blog done by a Canadian on what he scavenges off the street -- and sells. (So far, his total is more than $15,000 for the year.)
A bigger Stuff column will be on its way next time...have a great week.
