I'm not sure if Fool Hearty is still performing, their website doesn't have any updates beyond 2012. If you do go to a renaissance festival and see them listed as one of the acts, try and see them, they are very unique. Renaissance festival season is in full swing in this part of the country, Great Lakes just ended last weekend and the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival just started this weekend and runs through the end of September. The other side of the state has a really big one in the Harrisburg/Lancaster area along with several scattered around other nearby states. If you get a chance you should go, they are really a lot of fun!

First off, I'm really working at not buying any clothing. My closet has been just about bursting at the seams. I'm not a happy camper when I have so many clothes in there that they are getting wrinkled >:( Since the beginning of the summer I've only bought a handful of things, primarily some shorts that I really did need and those didn't come from a thrift store unfortunately. Second off, we really don't need anything. I'm still working on clearing out a lot of unused/unneeded items from our home. Because of all the things we had going on, I wasn't doing much on Ebay either, so as a result I felt a bit guilty when I did buy anything. I am getting back to that now, I sold 9 things this month, so I feel much better. I've also taken some stuff to Goodwill to donate and I'm currently working on two more piles, another for Goodwill and one for consignment. My closet is starting to look the way I want it to again. It's all good.
Let's see, the last thing I shared with you were the things we bought on vacation, and the dessert plates I bought shortly after that. I've mentioned that I've been doing a lot of stuff with American Girl dolls lately, and I had it in my head to keep an eye out for something I could transform in to a little dresser for them. I figured it would take me a while before I found something that worked, so you can imagine how surprised I was when I came across this:

Beautiful weather here in Western Pennsylvania, supposed to rain a lot this week. It's been a cool summer in comparison to the past couple of years, I'll take it! Reminds me a lot of the summers we had when I was growing up. It is odd to see it still nice and green with August more than halfway over. I want to lock this weather in for a long time, wonder how I can do that?

Last week I was talking with my niece and somehow we got on the topic of the death of someone we both knew. I was horrified when she told me about a posting that appeared on Facebook. This friend was handicapped and his death was a direct result of an accident due to his handicap. Some jerk posted some comments that were completely inappropriate, fortunately many of those who saw it called him on the carpet for his comments. The sadder part is that this individual does this all the time, I personally know several people who have been victims of his crazy rants, so much so that some of them have actually pressed charges against him. Yet he keeps doing it. He doesn't even do it anonymously. What is wrong with him?!?!
