The new store project is moving along with, well, more projects. John and I are having fun. In fact John is getting so into the spirit that he is coming up with ideas and projects on his own. This started out as Ginny's project and now is both of ours equally. I love that.
We found this beat up old table a few months ago and really liked the bits of detail on the apron of the piece. It is about 4 or 5" shorter than a regular dining table, but it is perfect to be a display table. As you can see, John is painting it black and it will be the base for these cubbies below which will hold our ribbons.
Then we decided to enhance the entrance to the classroom. The shelf will get trim amd paint, but I am liking the direction it is taking. What do you think?
There have been other issues and projects..no heat yesterday, but the landlord was great and got someone out immediately. We are still waiting on the sign guy to get going after many promised and broken dates. The new fireproof back door is taking longer to get installed. We need it so that we can go out the back entry when the wood flooring by the front entrance gets refinished next week. Still waiting for approximately 30% of the new inventory to be delivered.
But all in all, life is almost stress free and going along happily. The only real stress revolves around my oldest son who now works as a civilan at the Pentagon after working there while in the Army. He left today for Afghanistan for 3 months. Everyone in his office is doing a 3 month rotation and it is his turn. They all returned safely so we know he will also. Shouldn't everything be all right in the world when you drive into your driveway and the earth greets you with this?
