No...I haven't been to the trail in weeks! I thought maybe if I put up my "Notes from the Trail" post it would help get me motivated to do so later today. So...I'll update with real notes from the trail later to prove that I actually went.
In other news, I am finally allowed to use these old wool trousers that have been hanging in the back of the closet for many many years. He hated to part with them, but they are thread bare in places and don't fit anymore. Ha! I don't have any specific plans for them yet, but the classic wool has lots of recycle, reuse, upcycle potential!
Today, I'll be enjoying the kids' last soccer game of the season, making applesauce and an apple pie, and finishing a purse I've been working on.
I'll leave you with this fun bit....from drunkcyclist's blog:
"If you bought $1000 of stock a year ago, you would now have:
$91.28 if you bought Washington Mutual
$37.50 if you bought Neomagic
$21.29 if you bought Freddie Mac
$20.79 if you bought Fannie Mae
But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the recycling REFUND… You would have $… 214.00 in cash.
So the best investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.
It’s called the 401-Keg Plan"
