Temperance, Arts and Gifts

Well life here in Carver seems to be adventurous to say the least.  The birds living by our front door have learned to fly and have left the nest. The pictures that I have posted are of them a day before and the day of there new life out side of the nest.

The birds mom and dad were NOT happy that we were stopping to take pictures, but we couldn't help ourselves.

Jerid has been doing well in his summer programs for school and has been growing like a weed.  He has been eating like a teenage boy should, some say most kids his age 13, have a "hollow leg" when it comes to eating (that is where all the food goes) I firmly believe that his "hollow leg" has a hole in it.  When he isn't eating he seems to be sleeping.  It's good to see him grow.

Also there is a picture (taken by Justin Hartley) of our house on a beautiful Saturday morning when a group of bikers came to town.  Though it was loud it was a treat.

 Well on the house news front, we are planning to open up one room, the one that was a medical office, to become a occasional  shop that will be opened one weekend a month starting in August. The name that has been agreed upon is  Temperance, Arts and Gifts.  We will be selling mostly handmade items (knitting, crochet, paintings/prints, quilts, and so on), antiques, up cycled items, my friend Tamara will be the owner of the business and we will be adding thing at our own passe.
All we need to do now is sell the trailer, and get rid of Justin's dad's truck and we will have enough of a  cushion to start looking to get money to replace to roof.  (major leaking issues.)  Because the Historical  Society will NOT help with funding for  fixing the house unless it is a business.  So I guess it will be a business.  Hopefully it works in more then helping with the roof, but will give us a little money in our pockets as well.

I'm planning to start a Facebook Group account for the Temperance, Arts and Gifts shop. To show people what will be featured in that months sale.  I am also thinking of starting a separate blog for it.  That would be updated monthly.  Let me know if you think it a good or bad idea.  Input is so very nice.
