If It's Monday ~ It's John Barrowman Time ~!

Happy Monday Boys and girls!
I hope everyone had a great weekend and my thoughts go out to Kanani at Get Lost With Easy Rider.
We had a very constructive " deconstruction " weekend at the Casa. He was about to go out and do some stuff on Saturday and I needed to give the old icebox a bit of a spit and polish . Unfortunately , it was a bit more than that so deconstruction number one was to take the guts out of it ( shelves etc) and give them a good bath. It is something I can't do alone because the damn'd glass shelves are heavier than they look....ain't they always ?
Then...after X number of years hisself finally got around to starting the refurbishment on the coffee table.
I bought the table at JC Penny's in 1982 , and it is solid honest to God real wood....but the top has a parquet inset that has warped after all these years. It's a separate piece and super easy to pop out so we are going to pick out some slate and do a new inset.
We had been looking for a new table, but the dimensions are odd and yet the perfect length and height for the sofa and not made anymore.
Go figure....LMAO.
Besides, that mofo is solid wood.
And so of course it's raining and we will more than likely get the 4 + inches the weather wonks the table in the garage ( which will take a while to strip down ) will take forever to dry in between stages.
And of course I cleaned carpets....Sgt. Panda Pants and his sisfur are inside ...and I am looking forward to tonights battle with the boy who refuses to use a box at all to see that if he is going to be THAT way about it that he WILL have to go outsyboutsky to do his thing. least there is a new " Castle " tonight.
For the local readers...hey cool out's NASTY ...we're talking flying Monkey's here kids.
For the rest...
Have a great week.
Aunty Pol

Yummmm! Great way to start the week! Thanks, I needed that!

Dad went back to FL today. Up too late trying to get caught up! (Missed Castle trying to get a grip on things!)

Missed you Aunty!! Will read back over the course of the week... looks like I missed a LOT!

Cool on the table... I like seeing solid old pieces get a new lease on life.

And poo on SPP's little hissy. If misery loves company, I've got one right now (who, dang it, WHO??) who has decided the bathroom floor, right by the bathtub makes a fine place to relieve themselves. *sigh*

More later... hugs, L
