Ryan's new job has him gone 1-2 weeks a month. That is Monday to Friday.
Used to be the kids are in bed I could run to the store. He is gone so that isn't a legal option. I am at the mercy of a teenager and their schedule if I want out of the house alone.
Projects take longer. So I want to sand something in the garage, it is 40 degrees and rainy so I have to take the kids outside or let them loose without being watched.
This is what happens when you don't watch them:
In 15 years they will be off on their own lives and I will miss them. You tell me that, all of you whom their kids are in sports, jobs, have their own families...

Evenings I would go down and put a layer or two of paint on.
One thing we have learned from all our projects is that we take a lintless rag and put the paint on thinly. We like the finish. Since this was going to Jonathan's room I stayed more to the masculine side of our mistinted paint stash. I liked this army green so there are 4 coats of this on the table. The issue is the walls in his room are two shades of green so it couldn't stay that way. Then I used a red on top but again it didn't look right.

Normally Ryan would be working on his train but he needs to sandblast the body and paint it and its 20 degrees outside. I am not really inspired to work on any quilts.
So now for something a little different but the same...
We went though the stock of loose boards, cabinet doors and found a dresser top from my Grandpa Kissell.
Next to make a frame and legs that could handle a little climber on it so off to the 2x4 stack.
Ryan helped me square up the frame.

We ended up buying a snowblower.
