Or even four or five
My windows are open, and the fan has been on for a couple of days. In between getting together with friends, managing the revolving backyard door, and the, seemingly, never ending baking I have been doing, I have been going through our drawers, sorting through papers and dusting in the nether regions of this townhouse.
And so the spring lists begin: "Things to do for the summer." "Quilt and Knit Projects" "Writing Goals" "Home Improvement". As if I need any more lists floating around this house, on scrap pieces of paper, on the backs of the kids old homework pages, and in my handy dandy green notebook. But, I am a list maker, through thick and thin.
The first on the Home Improvement list is to get a Heart.
If you come upon a military family's home, you may find hanging on their walls a wooden decor, proudly displaying the many places they have called home. Ours was given to us by my dear friend S, at our first duty station. It came with only a few hearts; at the time I was getting out of the Army, and Hubby was unsure as to how long he wanted to stay in.
But 9/11 happened. The Country called, and we stayed on.
Many years later, we are still in, and proudly so. And now, we have run out of hearts.
We are already two hearts behind, and need maybe two or three more. We don't have wood working equipment, and don't know anyone nearby that has the ability or capability.
Can you help me? Do you woodwork? Can I send you dimensions for a wooden heart, for you to make and add a hook onto the top? I am a great paying customer :) .
The oven calls, and Baby J is pulling at my shirt, so I must run! I hope you all have a great day! And for those who celebrate the religious aspect of Easter - have a peaceful and reflective Good Friday.
