I've been very busy with a lot of new projects--it helps to have auctions and garage sales providing furniture now that summer is here. Ben continues to have the patience of Job. He not only hauls the stuff home for me, but does repairs as needed. And he never complains about my messes in the dining room or extra furniture sitting around the house. Here's what the table looked like the other day . . . I was on a painting frenzy (or some kind of frenzy).
