keeping on

July 27th, 2013 at 05:50 am

I had my frugal burn last week, and while I have a little more money at the end of this time period, I'll have another, smaller frugal burn ending mid August.

But I will have enough to do the Gumshoe with Spondilicks next weekend. For the first time in 10 years I missed the Greenwood Parade. Bummer, but it takes two buses, so I didn't feel up to it.

Not much more is happening. I've been sprucing up my 2nd bedroom for crafts - moved my work table around, unpacked a lot of glass, tile, and china. This week I painted two sliding closet doors in dk brown chalkboard paint (14$). Chalkboard paint goes on a lot like pudding; I felt like I was really slapping it on. Took at least two coats, a light sand to knock down the biggest brush strokes, and the third coat. Love the color enough so if chalkboarding doesn't appeal the color looks like I meant it.

    What is the gumshoe?

    Oh oh, its a charity event. For $20 ($15/person for a team), you get a list of 30 clues and questions that lead you on a 5K walk around the Greenwood neighborhood in Seattle. You answer the clues, finish the walk, then you hand the list in for a drawing. Gumshoe, old timey slang for a detective.

    Wow that sounds like fun!

    The gumshoe always sounds like so much fun. Enjoy!
