Then I made a trip into our little town to the hardware store. I love the hardware store here. Is that weird? First of all, the town pipes Christmas music into the street, which kind of makes me feel like I'm in a Christmas movie. Then, when you open the door to the hardware store it has one of those old fashioned bells on it. And then there's the guy that works there. He's like an old friend about five minutes after you meet him, one of those people who remembers all your family members and what's been going on with everybody. So I went in, visited with Hardware Guy about how Dad's feeling, what the kids are up to, which wood stoves we like, and finally this coat rack project. He helped me find the hooks I needed for the coat rack and after a little more chitchat, I headed home to complete the project.
Here's how it turned out!
And now we can hang up our coats and maybe I won't have to pick them all up off the floor every ten minutes!
It's a small project in the big picture of all the things to do around here, but it makes us happy!
What are you doing this week?
