After much trial and error, putting together, taking apart, two blood blisters and a bruised hand from using it for a hammer, the bookshelf was put together. Too bad I didn't have an 8 year old to help me read the instructions because they were sure confusing! LOL So I finally get it assembled, turn it right side and I had put the sides on upside down so that the finished ends were on the floor. Oh well, it works. I just bought a new black marker and stained the wood so unless I point out my mistake, no one will notice unless they really inspect it. Am thinking about getting another one while they are on sale through next Saturday. They are made from particle board but will work for what I need to use them for. They will hold about a hundred pounds without collapsing.
I bought a cordless two set phone so got that programmed this morning so I will donate my old corded phones. They take up too much room and I don't like being tied to the cord, especially when my long-winded friend calls me.
Our weather continues to be cooler than normal. So far this year we have had 78 minutes of summer, which means temperatures over 80. That is fine with me because I like it around 70. I can't imagine dealing with the extreme heat that is happening across the country. I hope everyone is drinking their water and staying hydrated.
