The house smells delicious. The pulled pork has fallen off the bones and is now "reducing" the amount of sauce in the pan. Last time I didn't read the directions correctly and didn't add the 1/2 cup water. Wish I hadn't added it today either. Four hours. And so much liquid I don't have crispy bits. No shirts have been ironed but G did go to the library for me. I now have a book to read. One of the Icelandic mysteries. I also spent some time online collecting info on bulb planting for my class tomorrow. At work.
My fingers are covered in paint, glue and now adhesive from the sticky glittered foam that I am cutting into shakes for the siding. This is my workspace. I also pulled the bead trim off the original house. Good thing I strung the beads on dental floss. The shakes on the original are all wonky and sort of charming. I am doing a better job of it this time and they aren't as charming. I also wish there was more glitter. Like that commercial on television "can't have too much glitter". I tore the original house apart so I wouldn't be tempted to "keep" it. The "new" Spooky House isn't as sweet as the original but once it's done I will love it anyway. That's the way it is with home crafted stuff. Just got to love it.
G has gone to work. But he thinks we (he) could trim the remaining plastic bones I have and finish off the window trim. Right now the bones don't fit. Or I could add more glitter beads. What do you think? I think I should have put the sides on before I added the top and bottom bones. Really got ahead of myself on this one. Could always pick them off. Might just do that.
