Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley August 23, 2013

Wow how fast is this year moving along? I blinked and here we are at the end of August. The kids are back to school this week and I always have mixed feelings about it. I love the long leisurely days of summer but also welcome the structure and schedule. They’re excited to see all their friends again and it always looks like the group of them grew a foot in just a few short months.

We’re starting a house painting project next week over at the shelter home (the one where we remodeled this kitchen and this bathroom). The exterior is looking pretty sad so with the help of some volunteers and generous donations we’ll be making it over with paint and a few other upgrades, I’ll share some photos when it’s all complete.


And a few posts I enjoyed reading this week:

another beautiful parade of homes

16 projects for decorating a dorm

when designers make mistakes

an end of books

all of these lit based shows and series look great (thanks Jules)

one second on the internet

tycoons not leaving money to their kids
