Sunday Afternoon Projects

All my adult, home-owning life, I have always been able to tell what day it was if I found myself with implements of destruction in my hand and a wall or two knocked out. For some unknown reason, the urge to begin big projects strikes me late on Sunday afternoons. I don’t know if it’s some “long, dark tea-time of the soul” or just an unnamed longing to improve upon my existence, but it’s been a theme running through the fabric of my life.

It’s about time I found a partner who shares my predilection for Sunday projects (actually, I think he just has endless stamina anytime or day, but hey, it fits well enough for my purposes). So I brought something home today.

And while destroying bits of the boat makes me gasp just a little (“modifying it,” Brock says), I am once again very excited to unveil the next luxury onboard our Katherine Jane.

All you boat dwellers out there, I’ll be very surprised if you can’t guess what it is…

    LOL ~ T, you are too funny! Carcass of a bunk…I’ll have to pass that along to the Carpenter in Chief. That’s pretty much what I thought too. I promise the story will unfold over the next few days. Lucky you, getting to live in Virtual Construction Land instead of the real thing…

    When we were in our swinging from tree to tree phase we built nests of branches & leaves and did a lot of fussing to get them just right…I think that gene is still kicking around in us and kicks in when we are setteling down in our modern day nests…be it a house/boat or plywood shack….or maybe some of us are a little bonkers….
