We’ve got a busy weekend ahead of us.  We need to put up some wallpaper, spray paint a bed, party today, Three Rivers Arts Festival tomorrow with art, music and guerilla knitters. The Blind Boys of Alabama close out the festival tomorrow evening at Point State Park. We missed Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros who played here last week.  Dang.  Good thing for videos.

    I think this is a lawn mowing day for us but, I’m not sure. We thought that was yesterday but, Mister ended up repairing a microwave oven — which I think is amazing (and I love our microwave so I’m pretty happy about it).

    Anyway. Lawns.

    • I think this is the weekend when the lawn gets mowed as well. No idea when I’m going to fit that in. It got pretty long this week due to all the rain.

  2. You are-literally-putting down roots in Pittsburgh.
    You sound happy.
