So, I’ve been attempting the summer resolutions. I was determined to not show my face around here unless I had some progress to show. And I’m using you as incentive to get things done. I’ve set a date with y’all for Friday. I’m checking in on everyone! I’d do it tomorrow, but a certain someone is turning 10, and I’ve promised him the stars and the moon!
My peeps are not really sure I can pull off the plan to put concrete on the kitchen table in place of the tile and food residue we chipped out. And so far they seem to be right! My first clue, that my plan may have been incredibly miscalculated, should have been when the boys and I spent more than an hour knocking out tile, only to realize that all I had to do was unscrew the table top from underneath and the whole thing would have popped out. And rather than draw the whole sorry tale out, I’ll just tell you that I am now on plan B. This was decided when 30 lbs. of concrete was not enough to fill the mold I made Brian made. Surely, failed attempts count as some kind of progress – at least you know what won’t work. So, after working so hard I ended up scooping out the whole mess to rethink the situation. But I do not give up easily!
The mixing, and I’m pretty sure this is going to end up not being the right stuff! Thus the multiple trips to the hardware store that I feared.
The crap I ended up scraping out, because I need a shallower mold.
Here, see something I’ve had far more success with – felt cuffs. The incentive thing is working. I love you people!
I’m not too sure about the spider web/dewdrop one, but it is still a work in progress.
