Elleth has made a fine collection of Middle-earth Dreamsheep
, for any of you Tolkien fans who may want to snag a few.
Here at home, I'm incredibly pleased that we finally had the old aluminum-and-glass sliding patio doors replaced with vinyl ones - my uncle does this sort of thing for his job and he's been low on work (like so many folks out there) so we had him come in to take care of it, he's amazingly fast and very detailed in his work and I am so happy with them! I can't believe the difference in noise and temperature already. Yay! We switched out all the old windows in the house when we first moved in nearly six years ago but ran out of money before we could do the two patio doors, so it also feels like it is a lingering project "done at last!"
Of course, when one thing works another breaks to make up for it. My dryer is suddenly dead so I'm hanging laundry and hoping for clear weather, and then my little car's breaks went gronk so I'm having to drive my big station wagon while we figure how to fix it - and it's the kind where you can almost literally watch the gas gauge go down as you drive. All together now - Money makes the world go 'round...
