This has been a crazy week.Â
Monday and Tuesday were spent tilling, weeding and tidying up the yard for the house tour on Saturday. This took away much of my energy, and by Wednesday I was exhausted.
It was the kick off to the Summer Reading Program at the library on Wednesday, and Norman Ng performed some wonderful magic. This gave me some down time from the yard work. I’m still trying to figure out how he did the bowling ball trick. Amazing. I wish he could make the weeds go magically disappear.
Thursday was spent running around the big city of Conway getting feed, and other staples we have been in need of.
Today, I am doing Crafty Kids at the library. We will be making sock puppets. If we have time, we will put on a short puppet show for the parents. This afternoon, I will be cleaning the house and getting it ready for the House and Garden tour put on by the Friends of the Effingham Library. It is an annual event used to raise money for the library.
Tomorrow morning,Â we will be up bright and early putting the finishing touches on the house. The house tour opens at 10 am. We will then spend the day in our Victorian clothes giving tours of our home, where each room is from a different era. Everyone is always in awe of what we have done.
To top off the end of the week, is the Victorian tea on Sunday at Pars Sem, which we will be of course dressed in our finest Victorian garb.
Whew…what a week.
