While we were scraping, younger daughter thought that the area that she was working on looked like South America. I'm not sure what happened next, but I think that eldest daughter then challenged her to create something more, how shall we say, intriguing? Next thing we knew, we had this on the wall:
Holy appearance? No. Unique artistry on the part of a 15 year old girl? Yes, I think so.
Younger daughter and I drove home Sunday night so she could go to school on Monday, while hubby and eldest daughter stayed behind. We got home to find out that we had run out of oil- no heat, no hot water. I tried to restart the furnace, but it groaned and smoked, so I hit the kill switch. Thank goodness for electric blankets. Then tonight, right before dinner, we heard a strange noise coming from the basement- apparently the freezer is dying a slow miserable death. I moved everything upstairs and crammed it into the kitchen freezer, then pulled the plug and put it out of its misery. I guess we will be shopping for a new one this week (which is nothing compared to trying to get the old one out of the basement- maybe we will just leave it there- a nice "gift" for the new owners 20 or 30 years from now).
How was your weekend?
