It has been quiet in the world of European Doorways because other projects have taken my time and words.
In a recent post, I hinted at the ongoing floor refinishing project I have been working on. I had plans that I would get it completed over my Christmas break. But I was not happy with the first staining job, so I re-sanded it and tried again. Now, I am very happy with the finished product. I have more pictures I will share in another post (that I will type today and set to publish in a few days.)
The floor in my guest room is done.
Thanks to my sis and CFA, the furniture is also moved in. I have new pillows and a down comforter. It is all ready for any guests that would like to come visit me. If you give me a heads up you are coming, I will even get the curtains done before you arrive.
This is the first BIG project in my new communications role. We actually did two separate documents: a one sheet Recap and a 24 page booklet. Everyone in the Unit played a part in this project.
This week I should receive the last edits from my co-workers and get a quote from the printer.
After a late night getting the last pages designed and articles proofed, I rewarded myself with two new pencils from the supply cabinet. I wish I could explain why I felt excited about new pencils, but I did.
The plans for the next annual report are already being made, so just like the 4-H Shows, the work is never really done.
To keep a bit of reality in this blog, I will show you the other side of the guest room.
I need to sort through all of that stuff and my cousin needs to come back and finish trimming the closet. I also need to finish the closet doors.
So my projects are only kinda done.
