Yesterday I finished, To Kill a Mockingbird. I had never read it. My daughter, Rebekah suggested it to me. It is a good book. The cover says it was voted the best novel of the 20th century. I guess it could be. Usually I don't get in to the crowd that sees deep meaning in stuff, but I'll be thinking about that book for quite a while. And now I'll know what a Boo Radley moment is.

Today I put a roof on a storage container I built. I patterned it after something I saw in a Martha Stewart magazine. It is in the style of shabby chic, made out of some old doors. It looks like an outhouse. Right now there are some lawn tools and patio chairs in it.

Earlier today I downloaded Open Office on to Rebekah's new laptop. I learned about it at a technology training put on by the school district. It is an open source product that seems completely compatible with Microsoft Office and it is free.
