Warmer Weather

Hope your Memorial Weekend went "swimmingly"!

It is the last day of May and difficult to believe it is May.  The weather has been in the 90s lately and we don't usually rate that temperature until August.  We broke out the air conditioner this weekend so that we could be comfortable after working outside on the patio/in the yard. 

We had a good bit of luck this weekend off of http://www.Freecycle.org as well.  If you don't know what Freecycle is, you are in for a treat!  It is a world-wide organization dedicated to keeping things out of trash bins and into the hands of folks who will use them.  For instance, on Friday I found a table that needed a little tlc and responded to the person who offered it.  We went to pick it up at the pre-arranged day/time, put it in the van and headed home.  Jeff went to work immediately on it by scraping some of the rust off/sanding the frame, painting the primer on it and finally the top coat.  It looks brand new!  Freecycle is a wonderful place to either announce that you have an item or you would like an item.  You can find anything on there except for live critters (or husbands ;-) lol  A date and time is set up by the responder/announcer and the item is picked up.  I have had wonderful success with Freecycle over the years and think it is magnificent but the best thing about it is, everything's free!

If you need any info or help setting up your Freecycle log-in, send me an email at: admin@nostalgicdreams.com and I will be more than happy to help!
