Reed pretended to eat "carrots" —playdough.
He loves playdough!
Today, we put shutters up on our house! We've been wanting them for a long time and early this week I found 4 sets on Craigslist for $30.00. That's about all our budget could afford, so I bought them since they were the right color, right size, and definitely the right price.
The first two were horribly hard to put up. I asked the guy at Lowe's to recommend a drill bit for drilling into bricks. It took us forever.
After that, we took a break because it was a million degrees outside. We went back to Lowe's and this time, another salesman recommended another bit. It was way to hot when we got home, so it was time for Reed's nap, so everyone rested.
After nap, it was still scorching hot, so we all went to the neighborhood pool. It was wonderful.
It cooled off by the time we arrived home, so we went back to work on the shutters. The new drill bit was like a hot knife through butter. Well, maybe not that good, but after the morning we had had, it was much better!
We're pretty pleased with the results. We achieved a more welcoming feel I think. Now, I'm going to list the other two sets of shutters on Craigslist and try to get my $30.00 back!
