Working For Auntie

Mom went over to Auntie's to do some work for her. Mom carted a bunch of power tools with her; a cordless drill, (and charge) a cordless skill saw, (and charger) an orbital sander, "L" brackets, tons of screws of different sizes and a tape measure. The last time mom did work for Auntie, this is what she made.

It is an organizer for Auntie's drawings and paper, and paintings. It was made this size so Auntie could put it in her closet, and make it more organized.

Usually after mom does something like this for Auntie, Auntie owes her BIG! This time Auntie made mom lunch (a really great pizza with tomatoes and sauteed onions, mmmm). Mom told Auntie that mom was taking the leftovers. Auntie decided to make mom 2 EXTRA loaves of bread. Mom got a promissory note for 2 loaves of Anadama bread, but Auntie is going to make her 2 extra loaves of CHEESE bread. Double yum. Mom says it pays to be handy with tools. Especially when Auntie is such a good chef.


If you want to see what mom made for Auntie, you have to go to Darling Millie and see for yourself. Auntie has promised mom that mom will get BIG smoochies for this and that Auntie is going to suck up to mom big time. She better. Or I will have to consider an appropriate punishment.

I went to Millie's and saw the table that your Mom made. It's really great. I think it's well worth two loaves of cheese bread. I hope you and Lucky get some of the bread. It sounds great and I know that the two of you really like cheese.

WoW! That was more fun to read than watching HGTV! Momma and I like to watch the shows where they bulid things from other things in your house that you are not using, but this was way better! Very cool! The ironing table is so ingenious! I also love the organizing cabinet you made auntie. Two of momma's favorite things are organizing and crafting. Love it!

Wow! It's always nice to have relatives or friends with power tools that know how to use them. Maybe you could teach Jan how to make us a biiiiiiiiig bed we can all roll and jump on?
