I hope you're all doing well, and not stressing out too badly if you're hosting Thanksgiving. We're visiting family, so that piece of stress is off my shoulders this year. It's a good thing, because planning my cookie exchange for the following weekend has me plenty busy!
We have been hard at work on the fireplace, and I thought you all could relate to my experience last night. Did you ever read the book, "The Little Old Man Who Could Not Read" when you were a kid?
It's an adorably cute book with lovely illustrations about a little old man who couldn't read (shocking, I know), and is left to grocery shop on his own when his wife goes out of town. Since he can't read, he ends up buying items based upon how they look, and as you might imagine, it doesn't bode well.
I had my own "The Blogger Who Could Not Read" moment last night as I was working on the fireplace. Like I said, we've been making progress. Take a peek -
The drywall is up (and while I hate anything drywall, I have to say I did a pretty good job), and I've been working on the stone. Last night I got to work again, only to discover at the end of the evening I had made a big mistake.
Can you guess which product I accidentally used? Yes, that would be the drywall compound.
Fortunately, I discovered it and removed the pieces that I had worked to put up, but it's so frustrating to have your productivity go down the tubes!
Have a wonderful day!
