I hope all of you have a wonderful Fourth of July! Since I have tomorrow off I am going to try and see if there are any garage sales open tomorrow. If not I will be hitting the local decorator's gallery (so fun) and antique mall. Saturday we are celebrating our nephew's 5th birthday up in the town where our cottage is at. So we might try to sneak in a little bit of work. But for the most part looks like another weekend that work won't be done at Rusty Cottage :( This is turning out to be a long and drawn out process. But in due time it will be ready for our little family to move in.
Don't forget to comment below on my free giveaway post!!!
On another note...
Last night was crazy! If any of you live in this area or east of Missouri then you know what I am talking about. That storm came so fast! I went to look outside at the clouds and the next thing I know I am hearing the tornado sirens. I ran inside to turn to our local channel and they are flashing Tornado Warning on the screen and telling everyone to seek shelter immediately. Addison was already sleeping so I had to wake her up. The poor thing didn't know what was going on. All of my siblings were here because my parent's were in Kansas City. So I had my sister Amanda and her newborn baby boy (I love being an Aunt) here as well as my 18 year old sister, my 10 year old sister and my 5 year old brother. Whew! I grabbed the mattress off of our bed, the weather radio, candles, matches, blankets, pillows and Addison and told everyone to get in the bathtub. Yeah right! There was just no way that we were all going to fit. Luckily the sirens turned off very quickly after that and we were able to emerge from the bathroom. I hate storms with a passion! And I hate not having a basement, here at our rental, even more.
