How I spent my Saturday

Hank is back to normal...whew. And since I didn't have to spend my day running out to check on him every half hour, I tackled a little home improvement project - a cornice for the living room window. This is the first project I have EVER done where: I had all the supplies and tools I needed - no emergency runs to the hardware store; I didn't make any mistakes measuring or cutting or assembling; I never whacked a finger with the hammer - not even once; and everything worked exactly as planned. This will never happen again, so I am savoring the moment. I had never used a circular saw to make mitered edges, nor had I ever used a jigsaw. But today, I mastered both. Am I proud of myself? You betcha!


  1. I'm so glad that Hank is back to normal. These equine mystery illnesses are so upsetting. And bravo - the window looks fab!

  2. You should be proud! That looks amazing!
    Did you have to make more window cornices?
    I bet they went even easier after the first one.

    Yay You!!
