I Can Follow Directions!

Wednesday, July 7, 2010
Over the weekend I put together a lawn swing.  It's not hard, the directions were clear, and I put it together in less than an hour.



I tried it out while I drank a Mike's.  Perfect!    A new place to read (nap) in the evenings.  

Oh, I had to clean up my mess when I was done.





Now that I think of it, it's a lot like quilting.  Read the directions, look at the diagrams.  Have the right tools.   Voila!

Good job, Lori. What's amazing is that you actually HAD the tools you needed with you. I'd probably have been missing the vital one.

Know what I want to be when I grow up? Somebody who has the money to ALWAYS buy thing that are already put together...and have them delivered. That's not to big an ambition is it??

Oh, nice swing! Here, I'd need a net draped over it to keep the mosquitoes at bay!

my neighbors have that same swing in their front yard! I keep wondering if they'd notice me moving it a couple inches each night till it was in MY yard....

I love putting things like that together! I assembled ALL our baby stuff....just cuz.

I'm always the one to assemble things around here because I actually read the directions. The swing looks great!
