It Ain’t Santa’s Workshop

It was a busy day with Lawrence, including a trip to our new local Lowe’s store.

Yes, that’s right, it’s been open over a month and I’d yet to step foot in it.
That all changed today. Two dimmer switches, some fancy commode base caps, and a container of hardwood floor cleaner later, Lawrence and I were on the go. Lawrence repaired the recent wind damage including putting the shutter back up on the kitchen window, attempting to fix my bedroom storm window (probably a lost cause, needs replacing), reanchoring the ceiling fan in the carport and then … we moved onto the Yankee Workshop. Or This D*mn Workshop.

And it isn’t Santa’s Workshop by any stretch. Nope. We were making … drawer fronts!

Here’s a few of what I was able to get assembled today. There’s still lots to do.

They need to have brads put through them and to get painted before being screwed and glued to the old drawer fronts. So, it will be a while before they get in place but they’re all cut and half of them are on their way to being assembled.

So, we got a whole lot done today. And man, am I feelin’ it. But, it was a good day off.
