Please! Let Her Sleep!!!

That was Tessie and Zar, loudly whispering in unison when I went into the family room this morning.

It seems that they have banded together to get the job done.

Nellie has them both buffaloed.  She keeps waking just long enough to make more demands. 

I am still not telling her that I am not in charge of the complaint department around here.  Let the Terrible Two have a taste of their own medicine for a while....Maybe they will start being nicer...One can only hope.

As you can see, the saw horses grew and multiplied this morning.  A foot higher and now there are two the same size.

What to do with one saw horse that was left over?  I made a small, temporary table for the living area. Three simple boards with cross bar supports underneath and a shelf at the other end.

She probably won't like it, but it will do for a while.

Tessie and Zar tiptoed upstairs and installed it, in complete silence. Not one sound!  Amazing what they can do when they work together.

We also got the shelves, under the stairs, installed.

One board and a small brace attached to the wall and stair back.  Very simple, but they will work well.

We even made allowance for storing the joint stools at the bottom, when they aren't needed.  I expect that, when not working, Nellie will want to put the frame on a wall and hide stools and saw horses.  They may have to hang on a wall or be hidden behind the frame wherever it stands.  We shall see.

Anyway, let's hope that she sleeps for a while longer. I think that the troops will rebel if she keeps it up and then I will have to be the one to contend with her..."Tessie, do you have any more of that Celestial Seasonings Sleepy Time Tea that I gave you the last time you got in one of your moods? We need it now!"

Back to work.

See you tomorrow

My goodness, the terrible two and you have been hard at work while the lady of the manor slept. Cute shelves you built. I wonder what Miss Nellie will want next?!!

I think it's funny that they're getting a taste of their own medicine, but I doubt they'll change but one never knows :)

I can't wait to see the funiture
