Heh, how's that for a catchy blog title? Anyway, here's another linen blouse made from a table cloth recycled from the thrift store, cost: $4.

Today I get to go to Donna's and yak for hours and eat China Buffet food, after I get done at the accountant's appointment and drop off that impressive pile of paperwork.

My life is so wonderfully full and I have so very many blessings to be thankful for.
