Table update

Is it only Tuesday?  It sure feels like at least Thursday.  Gah! 

My back is doing much better. The acute pain is gone, thank goodness. Now it’s just kind of a dull ache. I have gone off the heavy duty meds and am only on the ibuprofen 3 times a day.  I feel pretty good, although I get the occasional grab of pain if I move wrong.

It is that hectic time of year. We have a few too many irons in the fire. Even John said today he wanted to stress eat.  I didn’t take pictures of any food except for the dinner that John made, which was venison chili in the crockpot!

We made some more progress on the farmhouse table.  This is the base:

And this is the top frame we put together tonight (just sitting on the base and not attached right now).

Those rectangles in the middle will be filled with the small strips of wood.  It’s looking more and more like a table. An amateur table, but still a table.  Gotta finish it up!  The sanding is going to take the longest. I can’t wait to get it stained, either. I suppose it if doesn’t get finished, we can always plop a piece of plywood on top and serve dinner off of that, right? 

During all the stress, something that will help relax me arrived in the mail today:

I look forward to settling in with this under the heated fleece with some decaf :D
