How could I tell her no? She has now decided that, if I replace the pieces that I am sending out next week, she will forgive me. She made me sign a contract that stated the new furniture replacements to be her property, not to be stolen or given away EVER. So the drawing will go on as planned.....
My friend Elena, in Siberia, commented on the last entry to tell me that the windows in the cottage should be smaller. I quite agree with her. I was thinking about making them smaller, even before I got her comment. So I changed them this morning.
To keep out the wind, rain and cold, the Russian cottages do have smaller windows. I went down to 2" by 3 1/2" and also took the door down a bit too. I don't want to make them too small, because I am not going to electrify this one and it does need a little light coming in.
I started putting siding on the front of the house. It looks terrible right now. It is just roughly sided. A lot of this will be covered by gingerbread panels.
I did get a coat of teal on the siding. I will show you that tomorrow, hopefully with some of the trim done.
By the way, the windows will be even smaller when I get the frames and glass in them. But that's another story.
See you tomorrow.
