Get Your Morning Paper!
I went to meet April for coffee this morning. By the time I returned, Tessie had most of the paper installed in the tearoom. She picked out some fancy paper that had a border of flowers on the top and a border of pots with flowers in them on the bottom.....What did she do? She cut both borders off because they were to girly. I now have two very pretty borders to use elsewhere. She refuses to have them in the tea shop.
Oh well. I shouldn't complain. She at least used the right glue so it's not going to fall off the walls and it didn't bubble.
I trimmed out all of the window and door holes with an Exacto blade. I didn't want her to cut a foot or her nose off. Basically, all I have to do on the inside now is the window trim and a door.
Oops! I forgot the hole in the ceiling where the stairs used to be. That is going to have to be patched and the molding around the top and bottom will have to be glued in place. I keep finding more to do..... Rats!!!
While at the witches mini meeting, I measured and marked off wood for building two shelving units for either end of the shop and a small counter. Tessie looked them over and approved.
We had a long talk yesterday, after Zar left. She will NOT be bootlegging "Scotch tea" for him. I don't want to get into trouble and she understands that she could be thrown in jail if she does it.
She has promised to sell only the original teas that she was planning......My only worry now is what those are.....At least I know that they aren't alcoholic, buy there is some question about the supply of bugs and skunk cabbage that were delivered this morning....I don't remember any tea recipes with shiny black beetles or smelly veggies in the ingredient list.
"Tessie, where are you? We need to talk about this shipment. I am not signing for it!!!" I am off on a witch hunt now!
See you tomorrow.
