Work stopped on this little project 4 months ago, and now it is up to me to do my best to finish off the inside. We had so much fun with this, taking a real piece of junk and turning it into a little jewel.
This will be something fun to work on and I will learn new things along the way. I have helped DH a lot through the years with the various construction/building projects, so basically know how to use some of the smaller power tools. I know how to use a tape measure, a hand saw, other stuff too. I need to read the directions for hooking up the two little lights in the ceiling and try that after I turn the power off to the caravan. I’m in no real hurry. I will feels DH’s love and his encouragement from a distance. I’ll hear his voice in my head about doing things I’m sure too.
One day I took a little sentimental piece from our bedroom and put it in the caravan for the day when he would resume work. Little did I know that that wasn’t going to happen. But this little piece will stay in this space. You can see it sitting on the window ledge.
Below you will see two rugs that I pulled out of our stash of ‘stuff’. I need to gently wash them, and the floral one needs some stitching done in a couple of places. I want to make this space sort of gypsyish/tropical FlowerLady style.
You can see a one x two clamped to the counter top, which is holding it up. I’ve got to figure out how to make a support leg underneath, either at an angle like we were going to do, or straight up and down. All in good time. There are a couple of lady DIY’ers blogs than I can visit for inspiration. We were almost done with this project. It probably would have been completed by now if he hadn’t fallen ill.
I’ll basically be posting about my grieving process in my new blog, if any care to follow over there, here is the link: The Continuing Journey.
Thanks again for all of your love and support over the past few days. Priceless to me.
When it comes to life
the critical thing is
whether you take things for granted
or take them with gratitude.
