2. Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography, by Laura Ingalls Wilder. It's amazing! I had the opportunity to read a copy of the unbound manuscript years ago, but the notes in this autobiography are incredibly informative. I definitely recommend it for teens and adults who really want to know more about Laura and the Little House books. I'm thoroughly enjoying the ARC. (Bonus: It's 36% OFF at Amazon. Affiliate link.)
3. Writing project. I've been working on a writing project for a while. (An hour here and there.) I finally edited my draft. Now I just have to edit it lots more and then I can consider what's next.
4. Hard-working husband. Last year we had our plumbing repiped (in a five year old house...that's a different story). The plumbers cut holes in walls and ceiling to get to the pipes. To save money, my husband fixed the sheetrock himself. After a lot of work, the holes are completely fixed. This week he stopped with the wet sanding and created a giant mess to complete the project. Sheetrock dust is awful and gets into every nook and cranny, but it's done. He is painting another room, and I suspect the ceilings, before Thanksgiving.
5. He proposed. This was the weekend that my husband proposed to me in 2002. This was one of the engagement photos. (It wasn't my favorite...but my friend recently sent it to me so it's accessible.) I have a (fairly) recent picture of us on my About page. We may have changed a wee bit.
Bonus. Flower bed. I cleaned out the flower bed on Tuesday. With mild temperatures, it was a good day to do it. I don't know much about flowers, but I cut back all the dead flowers. I hope that's what you're supposed to do. It certainly looks better!
I've been cleaning dust this week. Not much time for blogging.
