Shout Out Saturday #20

6-1 dog

Happy Saturday party people! I just have one question to ask – how can it be June already?! It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating Christmas and we’re now nearly half way through 2013. It was a quick and fast week thanks to the four day workweek this week and we also have been thrown into the middle of thunderstorm season. From late April until late June we usually can be guaranteed several nasty thunderstorms each week and hearing the sirens go off is not a unique event. The nice thing, so far, this year is that we’re getting more rain which is great as we got so little of it last year. In more personal news, the Frugal Rules home is doing great. Our youngest, JP is becoming more and more of a walker each day. It really is neat to see the joy on his face as he walks with greater confidence, that is until his brother or sister decide it’s time to knock him over. We’re also getting ready to get some new windows installed in the house as well as some minor siding work done. Thankfully we’ll be exchanging services with a good friend of ours so the only real cost to us will be time. I hope that everyone has a great weekend and hopefully gets to enjoy some time outside. I’ll be busy tackling our garage and working on de-cluttering it.


Thanks to everyone who gave Frugal Rules a shout out last week or included us in their blog carnival. Have a great weekend everyone!

    • It is, especially when they have grins from ear to ear because they’re so proud of what they’re doing. They were calling for us to get a tornado the other night, but thankfully it diverted away from us.

    • Sorry to hear that. We had some bad storms Wednesday night, but thankfully the system they thought would produce a tornado diverted away from us.

    • Ha ha! I remember the same thing when we were in San Diego & LA, people just absolutely would freak out. God forbid it rain because people could not drive at all in the rain. ;)

  1. Seriously! I can’t even believe that it’s June already. It’s thundering here now as I type this. I don’t mind the rain, but the thunder makes our dog so scared. He’s sitting next to me and shaking. We’re considering a thundershirt it’s so bad. I know a couple of people who swear by them, so we might give it a try.
