Stain and canes
Monday, it took three coats of stripper to get all of the poly off the tabletop and a good wipedown with mineral spirits to get it ready for staining. I had to let it sit overnight to dry out completely. Yesterday, I sanded it down with 320 grit sandpaper, wiped it down and got moving on the staining. It's a nice dark color now and is patiently waiting in the garage, soaking up the stain and waiting for spray poly so I can begin painting the legs. Thankfully its supposed to be a little cooler today so I hope it's ready to roll.
I've got a few side projects to work on as well. It's like the answer to a never-ending-stooor-yyyyyyyyyy. Ahhhhh ahhhh ahhhhhhhhh! (For those of you who sang it...you rock. For those of you scratching your heads...here...educate yourself.)
We were going to do PiYo but the disc I put in just kind of instantly put me in a worse mood and I switched to free weights while we previewed it. I'll have to check out the other discs and see if this is something we even want to bother with. I like my yoga to be stretchy and relaxing, not moves I can't keep up with. Plus those two particular ones were really short so they weren't workout worthy, more of an add on. But I got a good strength session in so I'm glad about that. Dinner was shrimp and pasta.
I was in need of a mood lift so I popped in Home Alone . I may have grabbed us a candy cane when he went to see Santa and his elf had taken the rest of his candy canes and he gave Kevin tic tacs. Don't worry, we could afford it. My sinuses were thankful to get the stain vapor out of my nose hairs replaced with the strong burn of peppermint. I also put on a squirt of my new favorite perfume, Provence by Yves Delorme. I got it in Carmel and when I sniff my wrists, I am transported for a nanosecond.
Hopefully my pillow inserts will arrive today or tomorrow. While we love our new couches, the lack of pillows are infringing on proper
What movie cheers you up?
