Yesterday morning this was what was facing me. I know that it was wrong to skip church to work, but there was no other way that I was going to get these done. Every evening after work brings it's own set of chores and Saturday? We'll we are not even going to go there other than to mention that the groceries that were missing at our house were never even bought until after 2:00 in the afternoon. Dear hubby started for the grocery store at 9 and one interruption after another did not let him leave the house until after lunchtime.
So Sunday it is. These are at the fairgrounds and they had to be painted before Wednesday.
I "borrow" dear hubby's IPOD, gather brushes, paints, water, coffee and an apple and off I go.
When I start the IPOD, what greets me but ABBA! I love ABBA, but who would have thought that would be on dear hubby's IPOD? Do his camo-wearing, gun toting, harley riding buddies know that he has ABBA in his music collection? Just when I was starting to be a little concerned (after about five songs that I loved) Thunderstruck was next! Thank goodness! I was getting a little concerned.
Anyway, at the rate of about one every 1 to 1 1/2 hours, I finished what you see here in about eight hours of work. So much for a day of rest. I still have a bench and two more tables. I am waiting to hear what the people want on the other two tables. Geez, they are running out of time!
Someone else gets the job of varnishing. I think that she might be getting a little tense also.
This kid size one would be perfect at my house.
And the rest of them are tributes or advertising.
This plane was a bit of a challenge for me. Not the work I would have normally put in to a table but this man was really special to me and I actually rode with him in this plane.
Most give me free rein of what to paint. Of course I like to paint flowers.
This person wanted patriotic AND a campfire. That was a challenge.
I am off to start my final week of boot camp. Not a huge weight loss, but it has been fun and the days that I go, I seem to have a lot more energy. They are planning another one, but for the evenings. I am pretty sure that is NOT going to work for me.
I am a mother of four, two daughters and two stepdaughters and grandma to two very energetic adorable little boys, Tyler 11, Logan 10, two precious little girls, Gracelyn 9, and Kendall 7and three more little boys, Wyatt,6,Garren, 5, and Kamden, 4. They are the joy of my life. I have been married to my best friend John for 10 years and together we own our own business and work together every day. We have a crazy chaotic fun life with tons of activity.
