Busy, busy, dreadfully busy...






We are busy. There are so many things we are fixing and such around the house that we joke that it will probably be a year before we sit at home in the evening and say, "What should we do tonight?" I actually enjoy being handy, but I don't like to do it with a time restraint. Yesterday we had someone else come and look at the house. So we had to take a break from rebuilding the front entrance to get the house back to showing quality. It got a little messy because when we're working hard outside, we just shower and eat without much cleaning up. Not to mention all the tools hanging around in places that aren't a shop. ie: buffet, washing machine, master bedroom...

Then, while we were cleaning the house, it started to SNOW! I don't know if the earth realizes this but it's the end of march. So, we couldn't put on the second coat of paint. So we got a forced break. We watched some of season two of our new favorite show "Corner Gas" It is so funny I actually laugh out loud. Most funny shows only make me smile. And I finished making our lawn chair. We wanted to have two but we can't find the materials to do so. Trying to find macrame cord is next to impossible. There is a place in the states that has some but shipping is almost $30 so to make two chairs would cost about $60. Oh, by the way. the reason we are making them is because the new sling type lawn chairs hurt Cory's back. But, you can't buy the old stlye ones anymore and the only ones we have found needed to be restrung. Then my mom found some Nylotex nylon yarn that worked great but there was only enough for one chair and when I went online to find some more I found out that it is no longer made and the stuff you can get on ebay has the same shipping price as the macrame cord. So it seems that the new craft I like is out of date. The worst part is that I know that there is probably a ton of both Nylotex and macrame cord in peoples basements right here in town. Maybe I should put an ad in the buy and sell. Anyways, here are some pictures of our efforts.

Happy Birthday, Lovely Lady

And I think I maybe saw some macrame cord at Penny Pinchers. I can look tomorrow when the kids and I go out for our jaunt.

Looks great! --Krina

Wow! You actually made/fixed lawns chairs! I'm in awe :) Let's see, I can... wipe up the icky spit up off the exersaucer that my son then saw fit to play with! (yep - just now!) And I can knit some things. But now, one day, I want to build chairs too!;)
