Hoping everyone and everything is still spinning around the sun and everyone is vertical.
I am vertical and at; "stick a fork in her and see if she's done!" Yup, fried would be a good way to put the last few weeks. The days were cruising along, projects were coming along nicely and WHAM! Mercury hits your garage again or the sun has an anal flare. I don't know, sometimes there are few, if any answers for what is going on. So buckle up and here is the latest run down and maybe now you will understand why we live in Paine Falls or make that Pain Falls......
Since last posting, just 20 short days ago, I rolled into a few more projects. Yes, I should be in the studio but I really want to wrap this stuff up. I have grown comfortably oblivious to what is going on around this house. You walk over a crack in the sidewalk everyday on your way to school. One day someone fixes the crack but you just keep stepping over the now invisible crack. I didn't even see the crack in the floor anymore, nobody fixed it; Comfortably Oblivious.
After that false sense of superiority with tools and finally crossing one or two little projects off my list I thought why not, keep going, don't loose your momentum now because you might not get it back for another 11 years. I suck at start/stop projects. It's true in gardening, the kitchen, the house, the studio, life.
While building the shelves I spent way too much time on my knees and noticing the floor was looking pretty tired. It's a brown paper bag floor with three coats of poly. After two dogs, a gardener, a construction guy, and basic traffic the floor needed a facelift. I patched a couple cracks, three new coats of poly. Minwax and the floor looked pretty good again. The sun faded area was gone and it looked liked new.
