This is the face of a happy husband. You may be wondering what he is so happy about. It truly isn't anything outstanding from my point of view, but for him it is a grand moment in time. Yes, he has finally finished cleaning his shop. This is his domain...his sanctuary. Never mind the fact that there is a loving cat who hates the shop owner living in the shop. Never mind that with my sweet pussy cat comes a stinky box that sits in the corner of the shop. Even with this black ball of kitty fur, Michael's shop is clean. I bet it wont be long now that he will be starting back to work on my kitchen cabinets! A clean shop is a great place to work, work, work. Now it is my job to make sure that me and all the children do not pollute his sanctuary once again. Truth be told, I am the chief polluter of the shop. Whenever I do not have a place for an object, I tell a child to put it in Dad's shop. (The cat is a clear example of this habit). I am going to work harder on respecting his space, and keeping him a happy hubby.
We also spent some time this evening cutting our soap that we had made in early December. I think I am going to be very happy with it. We started cutting the soap on an old band saw. However, we quickly found out that a dry wall knife was a much easier tool for the job. We also found out that a tea bag box made a great soap mold. Our son helped cut soap, and he was very excited about our Luscious Lime Bar. He was ready to jump in the shower with a fresh bar of soap. I was very encouraged because this is the son that we have to push to take a shower. Perhaps things are looking up in this area.
grace and peace,
