Welcome to the second week of the August 2019 blog hop called "You're the Star"!

This past week, our focus has been on finishing up the potting and garden shed. It's a good use of our talents, and when completed, will provide much needed work space for next year's garden. To date, we have framed and sheathed the shed, with the windows installed yesterday as well as one side of cedar shingles. This shed is being built out of pocket, meaning no credit cards at all. When we get a paycheck, we put aside a little to buy the next round of supplies. It is amazing how easy it is to stay away from debt if we only have patience and plan ahead. 

. But, for now, welcome to the You're the Star Blog Hop for Monday, the second week of August!
Cheers, and enjoy the hop!
