I’ve been letting an idea about the lid for my recycling cabinet marinate in my brain for a little while. Do you ever get the feeling that your brain is smarter than you are? Sounds like a contradiction, I know, but a lot of times I just kind of shove a few fragments of thoughts I’ve had into a corner up there and let them rattle around for a little while… three or four days later while I’m clipping my toenails *bang* a full blown idea appears.
I’ve been doing that a lot lately with the wine rack and dovetail joints. And the lid for my recycling cabinet… you won’t see it again until it is finished, but I’ll give you a few snippets of what I’ve got going on before I introduce you to Harold.
While I was doing all of this, mind you, I was under serious scrutiny. It became apparent as I was sitting here with my beloved miter saw.
Please let me introduce you all to Harold, who has been looking over my shoulder at my work all day. I do not respond well to that kind of pressure Harold!
I called MysteryMan as soon as I saw him. By the time I hung up the phone I was all “Okay, Harold and I have to get back to work now.” And I actually heard MysteryMan think Dear God, she’s given it a name.
Welcome to my life people. Welcome to my life.
P.S. There is going to be all sorts of fun going on around here now as I have been assigned the task of painting a mural in a 50 ft long hallway. Did you know I could paint? More details soon…
