I finally finished up my ongoing greeting card project for now. I think I made about 75 cards. I did not count. I made a list of what photos I am out of and some ideas for new photos for future cards. I would never remember what I needed… hence the list. I use two or three cards every week.
As I was organizing the last of the left over photos I found a pattern for a baby blanket. Guess that must be a sign that it should be the next project. Yarn shopping is on my list of things to do!
I can see the top of my desk again. I have a couple of cards ready to write in and a photo to hang on the wall someplace. The photos in that big black box and the little red box need to be double checked for names and dates…
I got an email the other day, it was from Staples. I had been to their website looking at computer chairs. They had the sister chair to a chair we had that was getting real worn.
I told Far Guy, he said order them, they were half price and delivery was free. No trying to figure out how the dog and boxes with chairs would fit in the vehicle. I held the door open for the UPS driver and he put them inside on the landing. In an hour we had the new ones put together without too much cussing and the old ones went to my garage to be sold. Far Guy said “I hope those are the last chairs I have to deal with for a long time.”
These are a lighter brown than the old ones and the back is shorter…but they sit just fine.
I started two new projects that were kinda on my list. Cousin Verniel is sharing a bunch of old obituaries that she has, I will transcribe them and enter them one by one at Find A Grave. I began a new carving project, a gift for someone special and Far Guy is working on a new flower design that is just breathtaking. Someday I will share the results. As with any new design we work together to see what will work and what needs to be tweaked.
Our daughter Jen says my projects are all “self induced” …I suppose they are. Winters are long in Minnesota.
