I research, plan, change my mind, become obsessed and repeat when I’m working on projects… from home stuff to sewing, cooking to gardening. Last night I actually bought what I had been planning.
Hence, the box:
Brad has yet to realize that when I say, “Here take my picture” it’s going to appear in a blog…
The box contains a piece of furniture, it’s not terribly exciting but that will wait until another day. I stopped on my way home last night to pick up my box, fully expecting to be drenched by the derecho somewhere in the process. I figured I would spend a rainy evening assembling its contents. I was half right… I assembled the contents but it remained a reasonably nice weather evening and didn’t start to storm until much later.
As you can see, the box is about a head shorter than me, and I would approximate it’s weight at about 45 pounds. Not terrible, but awkward. Since I stopped on my way home, I was wearing the above outfit, plus a cardigan and wedges. I took my box out to the car in a cart, popped open the hatch and laid down one of the rear seats. I then proceeded to slide the box out of the cart while trying to keep the cart from dinging the car and the box from hitting the ground. This was not a graceful process.
Once I had closed up the car, I noticed a little old man in a car parked in a handicap space, watching me and chuckling. All I can say is that I hope he was impressed by my small, yet mightiness!
Anyway, onto the plans…
I’ve been planning on lots of things to post, and have all sorts of partial things in the works. I’ll be doing some updating around here and trying to fall into a more regular schedule of three+ posts per week. Rotating in some more home/crafty posts and dialing back a little on the diabetes posts.
Back to the box…
Once the mystery furniture was out of the box, the box became the main attraction in the living room.
What do you do on rainy evenings?
