I asked “Victoria what are your plans for Mother’s Day?”
The reply 2 weeks ago was “Ida Know”.
The reply 1 week ago was “Ida Know”.
The reply 3 days ago was “Ida Know”.
The reply at 4:00 PM yesterday was “Ida Know”.
I asked, “How about a personalized name plate for her desk?
Her reply “OK … I guess.”
I love my brand new teenager with all of my heart but sometimes her exuberance is a little underwhelming.
I found a hunk of Bass Wood and asked her to write down Martha’s name. I got out the carving tools and with my very beginner-ish efforts I carved out the name plate in a few hours. I gave her sand paper, Warm Cherry Stain and wipe on poly and said go for it.
She did at that! I think her finishing work is better than my carving. ;)
-- Thanks for all the lessons!
