My husband said he wanted to make a snowman for outside. I said ok. Then he brought me a square piece of exterior plywood and said to draw it for him. I said I couldn't draw it if I didn't have something to look at. So he found a snowman on a popcorn tin. I drew it. Then he said I needed to paint it. So I tried; the first effort looked as if it had a Beetle haircut. I was trying to shade it. I repainted the head. He made blocks of wood for features on the head and buttons. I painted them. Then I added mittens and a real muffler. It looked pretty good. I didn't realize when he said he wanted to make one that he meant "we."
I think I'd like to add Victorian carolers for next year. But I'd like a pattern and directions. I started looking last night and found some, but I'd prefer affluent carolers rather than middle class. Or even David Copperfield poor would be all right.
I added icicles this morning. I can't be the only person in the world who thinks icicles make it look even more spectacular. But I may be the only person in my family who thinks that.
Eating that much popcorn was a chore that Larry assumed for me so that I could have the tins. Isn't he a helpful guy?
