Having kids of all ages means we have a lot of stuff to cover the ages. Especially books. It’s hard to decide who keeps which books in which room. In the hall next to the kids room I built a shelf to house the children’s books. It’s the first time they have mostly been in one place. The kids books I treasure I selfishly keep in my own little room.
If you blew up this picture and stood in front of a room of wood workers with one of those kaleidoscope pointer things I
wood would be really embarrassed. Every time I try to build something I come across a “Fine Builder” magazine or something like it and I laugh myself silly. I look at the plans to make stuff and think it’s like reading some exotic language. Instead I walk around the barn and look at the wood we have and then go insane with the saw and drill until the level tells me it isn’t technically crooked but then when I bring it in the house it is kind of like a parallelogram. So I add more screws every which way. Is that a normal way to build stuff?
I made sure it’s secure and it won’t fall over. Hopefully you notice there are spaces available for more books :)
Thanks for your comments on yesterday’s post. I almost didn’t post it as it felt like I was exposing our boring-ness.
This is what the soup looks like when it’s finished, I’ll try and post how to make it soon.
Hope you are having a happy day!
