While all of the fun business of scraping ceilings, sanding woodwork and tiling is going on over at the farmhouse (thank you, Russell Moore and AUSAM Construction, http://ausamconstruction.com/) I got down to business with the important things! SHOPPING!
Actually, as a family, we drove down to the big city of Dallas to check out one of the coolest stores that I have ever been to. If you are into 'reduce, reuse and recycle', then this is the place for you. Discount Home Warehouse, check it out at http://www.dhwsalvage.com/ . I know you must be wondering what we purchased, but maybe you should remember that patience is a virtue... Bwahahahaha!
We arrived at about 9:30 on Saturday morning with a truck ready to load up with antique doors that had been removed from demolished homes nearby. Although it makes me sad to see an old and possibly historic home demolished, I am so glad that there is a company there to pull all of the character out of it before it is torn down. This place is a cornucopia of architectural goodness! Our newest friend, Larry, was so kind to show us around and help us find the perfect doors to replace some on the back of the house.

Today I am grateful for the rain, because even though it sometimes forces us to change our plans, our beautiful green grass grows, the flowers bloom and the air just smells clean. Sometimes we just need that. I am also thankful that our local Dollar General has lots of umbrellas because I can't ever find mine so I bought four of them this morning. ;-)
