Sometimes you just wake up knowing that there is going to be Trouble with a capital "T". Actually, I went to bed last night, knowing that there was going to be trouble.
Tessie has a new house coming. Zar has an old house, unfinished. Tessie wants the worktable to be house free when hers arrives.
I saw her sneaking up to the second floor of Zar's place this morning.....This can't be good.....
She climbed over mountains of debris just to get to the stairway. Exertion is not her thing.....
The next thing I knew, she was in the bathroom with one of my sculpting tools, digging at the wall. She knows that's where the secret door is. She has known for a while. She just doesn't know how to open it.
She kept yelling, "Zar! You have to move......Come out here you coward!" and other niceties....
I saw that Zar was on the other side, bracing the door for all he was worth.
Tessie has decided that the house should be finished and "out of the way" by the time her new townhouse arrives.
I would say that Zar and I have our work cut out for us. The new house is probably traveling overland by mule train, but it still won't take more than a week or two. I am in so much trouble.
At the rate that I was going on the Clockwork Cottage, it would probably be finished within the next year.....Now she wants it done in the next week or so.....Uh Oh....
Sometimes I am such a chicken. I am meekly standing back and letting the two of them fight it out. What will be, will be....Hmmmm...That would make a good song title.....
The last time I looked in, Zar was still barring the door and Tessie remembered that there was not, as yet, a roof on the room. She was hanging over the top.
"Zar! I advise you to cover your head. She is going to start throwing things down at you any minute now."
As for me, I am going to stand back until Tessie gets tired and goes away....After that, I have to start working double speed.
See you tomorrow with lots of progress. I hope.
