The youngest got back from church camp yesterday and you really don't know how much you miss the kids until they are gone for a few days. Plus, she is my helper. No matter what I am doing she is right there willing to lend a hand. So this morning I busted her out of bed at daylight and with some resistance, she followed suit and came out back to help with the morning chores.
She is the only one that does not have a job now and we try to give her some money here and there for whatever she needs, but it's nothing like having your own money to spend any way you want. Being that she does so much around here I told her this morning I would give her all the money from the cans if she bagged them up. The wife needs to go into town this week anyway and this little stop at the metal yard will give the youngest the pocket change she has been wanting. I have about 15 bags of crushed cans and I am figuring to get around 40 to 50 dollars.
I once built a China hutch out of old fence pickets and I even put them down on my floors in the old house. Speaking of the old house, I trimmed it with fence pickets and all the interior doors were made with them as well. Talk about rustic.
