So now you married and/or attached folks do not follow my lead and try this at home!
Being single and having a crappy kitchen counter makes this an easy place to do finishing work.
Those are four of my cutting boards getting all finished up and ready for giving away.
I hope you all had a very nice Thanksgiving. I had dinner with 60 of my closest friends. We have a group that goes camping every Thanksgiving. Of course, camping, for most of us now means RVs and lodges – but we still call it camping. Any way we rent a lodge at a nearby campground and spend the Thanksgiving holiday together playing cards and this year a new game called Marble Pursuit. I highly recommend the game to all of you, it’s a hoot, easy to play and fun as all get out. Can’t tell you how many games we played – but we had a blast. We also played a lot of the card game 31—- I lost all of $3.75 playing. Yep a real gambler I am, but it was great fun.
I came home late yesterday and started working in the shop. I took a nose dive onto the floor. Yikes! I’m okay, but it made me realize that I need to reorganize my shop and set things up a little better. It also scared the you know what out of me because I did not have my cell phone in my pocket. That’s a no no. If I had hurt myself no one would have heard me yelling or missed me for a while. I have a roommate, but she knows I can spend hours in the shop and it would have taken her a long time to realize I had not come inside. So I’ve been cleaning and rearranging today – with my cell phone in my pocket!
Cleaning is also good therapy – but I can’t wait to get it all done so I can get back going with the sawdust treatments. That is the type of medicine that can go down without any sugar at all! :-)
Well – going to get back out there for a few more hours and see if I can’t get just a little bit closer to the sawdust.
See you around the shop—- and remember – don’t follow my lead by taking over the kitchen counter—but if you do – don’t tell your other half you got the idea from me – I have enough trouble already!
