Bing, Bang, Boom
Unusually busy around here — the landlord is back from Mexico & is having the huge mini-forest of cedars leading to the water cut down. A little bing in my world — more on that later.
It didn’t take me long & I had the glass safely put away. And wow, how cool it all looks with the sun shining through!
It started a mini-whirl of spring cleaning. But again, more on that later.
I have the perfect blank spot on the wall behind my project table to hang this — I’m thinking I’ll make a collage of some of the mega pictures we have of her. 🙂
I do not teach my grand-daughter — she teaches me! I learned a new sign from her — on — when I was played the musical clown dolls her father & uncles had given me. She put one of her little hands on top of the other & sorta moved. Oh, do you want it on again? Yes, mom says, that’s the sign for on. What a darling!
The coolest moment is when she looks at me & says Na-na. Her voice is clear & full of wonder — especially when she says words like Oh, Yes, & even No. 😀
Our adult talk always leads to the world we want for her — our hopes, our fears. I want her to have children, grand-children, & even great-grandchildren to enjoy in a world filled with peace, knowledge, nature, security — & of course, mega love.
Then, even though it’s been hours, they’re off again & I’m back to my organizing — the bang in my life carries on. The table looks great & opens up the area — there’s plenty of room on the top for working & plenty underneath for storage. 😎
And, funny enough, it’s first job was as a diaper changing table — best spot in the house. It’s the perfect height for tall people like me, my son & his wife — amazing that raising a counter 6″ can save your back!
I moved & organized until I was exhausted — boy, it’s been a busy couple of days! I’m definitely pleased with how it’s turning out. No, it’s not a $1200 Pottery Barn unit made of MDF. It’s painted plywood waiting for some glamour.
I’ve got a couple ideas of putting cork, white board, etc. on the sides & yup, I might even try my hand at cutting mitre cuts for molding. Most of that is cosmetic.
This is a working table that is beautiful enough to be in my living room — for now. [Someday it might be in it’s own ‘project room’.]
It’s time to get back to glass work & I’m absolutely delighted. 😛
