The picture below is of the tower I created to act as a tripod so I could get a halfway decent picture of the garland. It was all for you, Nancy, since I know you expect great things from me now, and I wouldn't want to disappoint!
After I was done with that I started working on my wire family tree. I got the branches formed and bound. I still haven't gotten pictures yet, so this project is sitting in unfinished limbo until then.
By the end of the day the door painters never came. Brian called, and apparently they had some trouble getting the paint (whatever that means), so they're coming this week sometime. Pretty ridiculous, huh? He told them they'd have to work around us this time, since they didn't feel the need to tell us before I took a paid day off work. But, hey, at least I was productive on my day off.
