Just Putzin'

"Just Putzin'"
This is one of my husbands favorite sayings when asked what he is doing. Brittany, our oldest daughter, informed him recently that she didn't think that "putzin" was an actual word.
It is more than a word at our house. It has become a way of life. With so many projects going on in the restoration of our 1918 cottage, we tend to "just putz" ALOT!! This weekend was a prime example. We had so many things on our to get done list that we didn't seem to know which way to go first and not a whole lot actually got done. We did manage to get the NINE layers of paint scraped off of all of the cabinet doors and the cabinets themselves scraped, sanded and painted. The doors and drawers are still hanging around in the garage waiting for the paint brush to descend upon them. (Some of them are painted and ready to be re-hung.) I had delusions of granduer and really thought that we would get the cabinets done and back together this weekend. I guess I should have painted instead of "putzin'" around down at the Sunday Market for several hours! Ah, well, it will all come together....eventually......
