After I got them in place, I saw Tessie and Zar playing "One potato, Two potato". Still trying to settle whom will get the Shed... Unfortunately that method doesn't work to well when there are only two people doing it.
I put the front on the shed and left. Until I heard shouting.
I quietly backed out and quietly shut the door. I want no part of this. I am not going to play referee to those two.
I am going to go back to rug making.
Fisticuffs never settled anything.
Yes. Rug making. That's the ticket.
See you tomorrow.

When I got home, I found Zar trying to finish his rug. All he really did was mess up the yarn stash.
I am now to the end of the middle section and ready to start the stripes on the other end.
That one can go in the Clockwork Cottage if I ever get back to working on it.
I still have a week or more of straightening the workroom.
I don't really want to talk about it!
Yup. It was Tessie.
It seems that she wants two rugs and a lot of baskets made from this stash... I had better get back to the needle.
This could take a couple of years, at the rate that I am going...
I want to get Zar's rug finished. I am anxious to see how the yarn by Tessie's feet will look as a rug. Very colorful, if nothing else.
Back to the needle. See you tomorrow.

He has pretty much given into Tessie's claiming of the She Shed.
Of course I am not happy that he took over my craft cottage. There's not much I can do about it.
He brought his own chair, so who am I to complain?
She hasn't done a lick of work. In fact the pile of stuff is getting deeper as we speak...
The dreaded closet comes next. It is the worst...
No. Wait. I take that back...
I just did it a couple of months ago, but those shelves never stay clean for long.
I have talked Walter into getting on a ladder and handing me things down from the plant shelf above the closet. It is eight feet up and I am not allowed to climb up there... Walter says that I might fall and break something... Meaning me.
I am not arguing with him. That's a long way up and even longer if I fall off of a ladder.
Just toss things down and I will catch them. It's safer.
Back to work.
See you tomorrow.

It may not look neat, but I did get rid of some stuff and got each kind of wood together.
Ask me where something is and I can find it now, if I have it...
I did go through things, but there wasn't much out of place or to get rid of. No extra space gained here.
If I don't do that, she is going to start hassling me about a new home.
Anyway, I am working away on the rya rug and keeping my fingers crossed that the two of them settle things soon. I want to get this finished and get on to something else.
Wish me luck.
See you tomorrow.

When I wanted to leave to do the blog, he refused... I had to push him off of the chair. Then I chased him out of the room.
I have been finding all kinds of things that I didn't know I had. Lots of unfinished furniture that needs finishing. Lots of things that I didn't even know that I had!
George moved up a shelf. Now he looks down on me, instead of staring me directly in the eye.
I sorted and refolded all of the fabric in the two shelves. Messy!
See that almost empty shelf next to the wood? I gained a shelf! So I am making progress. A whole empty shelf!
I am finding some things that I am going to take to Wednesday Witches and see if anybody wants them.
I don't think that there is anything that they will be fighting over, but if they want any of it, they are welcome to it.
To make matters worse, I emptied Tessie's Townhouse. One of the Witches is taking it off of my hands. It just isn't my style. Good riddance. Anyway, the Terrible Two dragged some of the furniture into the bedroom and are now fighting over what would fit nicely in the Shed and who is going to own it.
I am avoiding that area of the house. It's easier that way. Let them settle it. I am just a bystander.
Back to the rya rug. See you tomorrow.

After cleaning out the desk drawers, I have finally found both the lamp and the authentication that goes with it!
The little card that goes with it looks older than the lamp. It has been through the wars.
Yes, they are still arguing. No winner yet...
I am getting better at this all the time. Practice. Practice. Practice.
I have a doctor's appointment this afternoon at 2:00 PM. I will probably be able to get a few more rows done whilst waiting for the doctor to call me in. I am getting really close to not having to go back to doctors anymore. Just a couple more steps and I will be done. I can't wait!
Back to work. See you tomorrow.

There surely has to be things that I really don't need and things that just plain aren't useful.
I have decided this time that I have to go through all of the boxes, drawers, baskets and houses and get rid of things that are of no use to me any longer. There would be so much more room in there if I did that...
I threw out glue bottles that have been dried up for years.
Oops. I just noticed the 1/2" house. I forgot to go look in there. I know that it has furniture in it. Not all good furniture. OK. That's where I go when I get done here. That needs fixing!
She is trying to convince me that she really needs another she shed!
So far it's not working... She dug out an old chase lounge and told me that it would look "dandy" in there...
Nope. I am not building a She Shed for an old piece of furniture that should go in the trash bin.
Zar is winning so far. I like the rug that he is having me make. That gets a higher ranking than an old beat up chair.
I am going to go and work on the rug some more... I haven't done anything on it today. It's about time.
See you tomorrow.
