Everything in the Right Order...
I started the landing platform this morning.
I centered the tower in the middle and did a pencil mark around it. Then drew lines from that to all four corners.
I put screen door molding around all four sides to strengthen it.
Then I went and found a bamboo place mat that had a label on it from Michael's. I don't remember buying it there, but I am glad that I did.
I wanted the platform to look like fancy decking... It worked quite well. One side of the bamboo is slightly rounded and the other side is flat. I used it rounded side up.
I only used a couple of rows of the round white rods in the place mats towards the center to add interest. The ones right next to the building are just temporarily in place. I am not sure if I am going to use them or not.
Anyway. after getting three sides done, I decided to take a break and type for a while.
I went back out to get a cup of coffee and I noticed that the lights were on and somebody was making themselves at home...
Tessie heaved a heavy sigh, shrugged her shoulders and replied.... "So I'll zap the stools back to the kitchen... Care for a cup of coffee or a bug beer?"
Unfortunately, Tessie is very good at biding her time... I am going to have to be very careful. I should start making calls to Daisy and see when she can get here. Then I have to time it so that I can send it off to her while the Terrible Two aren't looking... Wish me luck! I'm going to need it.
See you tomorrow.
