Herself scored BIG. 4 pairs of shorts, 3 pairs of pants (1 of which she is currently steam-punking out), 2 jackets, a swimsuit, and a polyester jacket that looks a lot like a lab coat, so that's what it is now. :lol: Himself doesn't like thrift clothes (I'm fine with it - I told him, though, that if won't wear pre-owned stuff he can't turn his nose up at Wal-Mart clothes, because I can't afford name-brand stuff. He's cool, so.....:shrug:)
Saturday was buy a new dog crate day (because Chloe...well, she's still not house-trusty. And she outgrew the other crate. At least this one will fit Bree, and we can use it for goats, later.)
Sunday....was clean so the new refrigerator can be installed. :sigh: My old one finally managed to piss off both me AND SG (we replaced the ice maker last year (or the year before - you'd think I'd remember when I dropped $350, right?) and it's started making hollow ice again. I ignored it...so it decided to make 1 batch of ice, then freeze up. I started de-icing the maker every 3 or 4 hours.....so it decided to stop dispensing ice. At which point SG got fed up.) Fun stuff.
H: Got the box! Thank you!!!! They FIT, too!!!! And Herself has already wire-wrapped an emerald, and is planning how to use the other stuff. :lol:
School: While we were out Wednesday, we hit Half Price. I am GLAD we did...we're about 3 weeks away from starting WWII. I had planned on spending a couple of weeks on it (like I did on WWI)....but Wednesday? I found "Echoes and Reflections" a multimedia curriculum on the Holocaust. WITH the CD (that has interviews with survivors). It's set up for classroom use, but I can easily adapt it. It's put out by Yad Vashem...and it's.....wow. WWII is now going to take at *least* 4 weeks, possibly 6. I'm going to start planning it out this afternoon. I want to do this, and spend at least 1 week on the Bomb, and 1 week on our History book......and I need to find some documentaries, as well. We've been watching some as PBS posts them on the app.....but I need to solidify my plans.
Hope y'all are having a good day. We're drying out after a lovely day of thunder-boomers yesterday. Got some rain, but the bad stuff missed us and went North. Thankfully!
