The Blade on the Saw Goes Round and Round....
Zar is a bit miffed because he has to keep winding it up to get it to cut. That slows the process a bit.
April and Amare came over this morning...That kind of slowed down the work on the cottage and the cleaning of the workroom.
Amare loves Tuesdays at our house....Garbage day...He loves anything with wheels and garbage trucks are special, because they pick the cans up and dump them inside.
Therefore garbage was much more fun than minis or cleaning...Especially cleaning.
When I looked in on the Terrible Two about ten, they had an assembly line going. I tiptoed quietly away. I didn't want to interrupt the flow.
Zar was cutting strips to go around the upstairs widows and Tessie was marking them to be cut to fit.
I am getting a bit nervous....They are working well together and seem to be taking over when I am not around.
After April and Amare left, I sneaked in again and there they were in the corner whispering about plans for either an inside sink or an outside pump in the yard.
It is as if they were planning this for themselves...Don't I get a say on the subject of sink or pump?
It would be nice to have running water to clean up in the cottage. I am not looking forward to carrying buckets from the house.
I think that they were leaning towards an inside sink. I am going to let them keep going until I see something that I don't like...
Tessie found some brass faucets and handles that would work if I built a tiny sink cabinet in the corner.
Maybe cleaning out the workroom is a good thing. We keep finding more things to put in the cottage. Pretty soon, it is going to be overstuffed.
Now all I have to do is get Tessie's formula for shrinking away from her....So far, I am not having a lot of luck. She keeps saying things like, "I would rather dump it down the toilet than give it to you!" and, "I will trade it to you for an equal share in the cottage." and did I mention, "Over my dead body!". I answered the last one with, "Don't tempt me!"
Wish me luck....I fear that I am going to need a lot, if I ever want to work in the cottage....
See you tomorrow.
