Working Working Working and Extra Links

Still super busy with a million things going on... mostly finishing the big order and getting ready for Saturday's home show.  Part of that preparation involved clearing the dining room and the file cabinet, so I have been sorting and shredding papers, which I admit is rather liberating and enjoyable.  All those tiny shreds of paper, the sound of the shredder, the bags full of paper going out to the curb for recycling... very satisfying.  Also in the mix was some plumbing issues that had me a bit anxious.  The important ones were likely fixed today, thankfully. The show stuff is getting done and the house is looking good. I have lots more work to do, but it will get done.  It always does.  But I will probably be quiet for a while until things settle down.  I didn't get around to posting last week's Extra links yet, so I thought I would do a quick check in and post them today.  Here ya go:
