Just Under the Two Month Mark

I knew it had been a long time since I'd done an entry, but I guess I didn't realize it was this long.  January did a little disappearing act as I had pnuemonia.  Not fun.  It didn't even occur to me that I may have pnuemonia.  I went to the hospital for the on-going terrible mirgraine I had.  Turns out, it was only a side-effect.  Nasty little side effect.  Since then, two of the girls were sick - so you can imagine how much time I've had.

However, with that said I did have a little project on the side that I finished a couple of weeks ago.  Mid-January I purchased an older hutch on Kijiji for $100.  I needed some storage in my office and I didn't want some standard shelving.

It was an okay cabinet.  Solid wood, but not really my style.  Needed a little sanding.  So I take off the doors etc. and get out the sander.  It turns out, sanding in the winter in an open concept house is a bit messy.  I'll be cleaning dust for months I'm sure.  At least I'll be using this as an excuse for months.  Sanding is also a dirty job on your lungs (especially when you have pnuemonia) so I wore a mask to limit how much of it I was breathing in.  Marley wanted to help in the worst way, and likes the vaccuuming job.  She insisted on also wearing a mask in order to not breathe anything in.  This is what she came up with.

The point of no return.

Primed and ready

Job well done.   (If I do say so myself.)
