Happy Monday, everyone!!
We were to get freezing fog today but instead we have clear blue skies. YEAHHHHHHHH!!!!
I can't believe it!! Yesterday, I was browsing blogs and came across this really cool wooden perpetual calendar here.
As a joke, not thinking he would even look at his e-mail for days....I sent the directions to my hubby's e-mail and said, "Please make me this" ;-)
Now, you have to realize he is NOT a finish carpenter. I have been begging him for years to try his hand at woodworking, but it's just not his thing.
This morning, I was up at 1:30am...just couldn't sleep. So, I played games and browsed blogs till about 7:30 am and then, I took a little nap but was awakened a bit later to the sound of a sander and hammering and wondered "What on earth?"
I looked outside and could barely see hubby in the side yard busy doing something so I decided to check my e-mail.
As I was checking my e-mail, in comes hubby with a perpetual calendar for me! Now how cool is that?
He apologized because he didn't have the best wood available...it had some rough spots and he didn't have the right size blocks... but I told him it would be fun just to alter it and see what happens.
The fact that I asked for it and he did it is just AWESOME!!
For those of you that may like to try your hand at it, I have included the directions above. But, if you don't have a hubby or friend that can do this.....you can actually buy it from his Etsy store. Buy one here and alter it yourself
Ok, I am off to see what other stuff I can get into :-)
