Thinking about it, there just maybe more projects going on during my stay in Walla Walla, WA than I have days to post about them. But you know what? I'm having a blast riding the coat tails of my BFF and getting my hands dirty trying different crafting techniques, and thankfully, a hot glue gun has not been seen.......yet. The latest project is similar to the school desks. This little child's table and chairs just screamed out for a bright coat of colonial red paint, and then what better than to make the tabletop a chalkboard. Can you believe this little beauty was found at a thrift store for only $5? What a great addition to any home where small children live. The trucking news for the day is that Craig had a full day on Monday delivering to three locations. At his first stop in Vernon, he was delayed getting unloaded so as to not make his second stop on time. Of course the 90 minute slow down on Highway 101, due to an overnight shooting didn't help matters either. But alls well that ends well, and after his third stop, he made it safely into the company yard in Bloomington for a well deserved nights sleep.

Prior to actually getting that sleep, he received his next dispatch to head to the Port of San Diego for a load of Dole bananas Tuesday morning. It seems like it has been quite awhile since he has made this trek south, and after arriving at the Port, and taking possession of a loaded trailer, he was told to transport it only 3 miles down the road to hand it off to another driver who was not in possession of a TWIC credential. After hooking up to that driver's empty trailer, it was back to the Port for another load of bananas. This time, he kept the trailer after being loaded, and had just enough time to get back once again to the company yard in Bloomington for the night.

This morning Craig is headed north with an eventual delivery in Puyallup, WA at the Fred Meyer DC Friday morning. As for me? I'll be busy working along side my friend Cori, as we complete another project or two, but don't tell our husbands, as we just may be hitting another thrift store or two, in search of that special something that is just screaming out for us to reinvent it.
