It's Michael's birthday!
We were going to go get burgers and beer, and I was going to make some tasty treats...but our truck decided to start making a weird noise last week, so we decided to take it in. It's still in the shop, and seeing as Detroit, and it's surrounding areas, has no public transportation...we will be sitting at home this weekend.
I did suggest that we ride our bikes down to the gas station, pick up some 40 oz. and happily drink them in the weird park/trailer park down the road. He didn't seem to be too interested in that though.
Anyway. I found some really interesting links this morning.
This one is about Detroit.
I want to go here.
Detroit Public Schools Book Depository
(scroll down the page a little)
I also found a fellow Detroit crafter/artist
The Phantom Limb
She has really cool stuff.
Also, if you haven't discovered Megan Chapman's blog, you should.
She writes a weekly blog, every Friday, and this weeks was one of the best. Ever.
I am still thinking about what she wrote, and taking it in.
Thank you Megan!
ps. the pictures were taken by Mike. The house, is a house in our neighborhood. During Christmas there was a Christmas tree in every window.
