I’m wondering if it makes me sound like an old person when I say, “Every year the time seems to go by more quickly.” It sounds, even to me, like something and old(er) person would say. That doesn’t change the fact that it’s true. My theory is that as we live through more and more years – each successive year is proportionally smaller. . .you know, compared to your whole life. A year for my son is one tenth of his life while a year for me is only one thirty-eighth!! of my life. So it makes sense. The whizzing, zinging, lightspeed rate at which time is coursing by me. That makes sense. . .
Which is to say: I can’t believe it’s Friday already!
Last week I said – here on the blog – that I would post each Friday about something I’ve made. I’m so pleased to be able to show you this coat rack that I finished this afternoon. I’m very pleased with the way it came out. But I am even more pleased that I was able to complete the project totally on my own. I’m not sure if you care but this was a really big accomplishment. The coat rack is not a complicated project. It did involve some tools that I’ve never used before though – and to be honest – I usually leave all woodworking to Mr. Social Media (he’s also very handy – really – how lucky can a girl get?) Earlier in the week I got to a point in the project where I thought I needed advice and help. Unfortunately, the two of us couldn’t find anytime in the last few days to be in the barn (where the tools are) together so that he could give me a hand.
This morning i realized that the project just wouldn’t get finished in time. And I felt that I had failed myself. Overdramatic? Truth.
Well, guess what? I decided to just move ahead. Make it happen. Even if it didn’t come out exactly like I had pictured it in my head at least I would have made the effort.
It came out EXACTLY like I had pictured it IN MY HEAD!
maybe even better. . .
While I was making this one I worked on two others. They’re a bit different than this one. Maybe I’ll show them to you next week! I’d love to know what you think of the coat rack. I had a great time making it – I think I may have found a new addiction. . . If you’re looking for me – you’ll probably find me out in the barn. . .
