Busiest week ever

This is the beginning of Overdrive Week.

Today: canning peaches and getting my prints matted for the fair.

Canning Across America is a good site for anyone who doesn't can, but wants to know what it's all about. According to their site, "[t]he weekend of Aug. 29-30 is our kickoff, with how-to classes, demos and home canning parties in cities around the country. " I like canning. It's something we do as a family and we get to each delicious peaches (or beans or whatever) in the winter. How can you go wrong?

Yesterday Keith and I scored at the farmers/flea market when we bought 17 classic records (yes, actual vinyl records) for $35! Including four Bob Dylan albums, Janis Joplin In Concert, Miles Davis Sketches of Spain, two Rolling Stones double albums, and Van Morrison's Moondance. The man who was selling them used to live in NYC in the 60s and was a wealth of information. Very cool guy. So I think some of these will be our Canning Soundtrack today.

I also scored this vintage fan for only $8! It needs cleaned, but it's a beauty.

Keith has a couple of odd jobs to wrap up with the neighbors, but hopefully next week we will be in full force on Project: Tiny House Interior. It would be an understatement to say I'm excited. Nagging is probably the word Keith would use.
