The khana is almost tied together.

I found myself "at leisure" again today, and in Marlboro. I was supposed to be doing some marketing stuff for a company there, but an hour after I got there, they told me the project was cancelled. It so isn't my week. All this, and PMS too. C'mon. Someone try to break into my house. I could use the exercise. Muahaha. Fear.


Anyway, seeing as how it was 10:30am and I had nothing better to do, I trotted up to Mom and Dad's and spent the rest of the day pottering around the shop, tying sticks together with leather lace. Dad and I did make a trek up to Michael's (local craft chain), where I bought a 16 oz bag of assorted leather lace -- this after the latigo lace we bought on the card snapped in my hand while I was trying to pull it tight.

By 6pm, I had about 32 feet of the khana assembled, which is a net gain of over 10 feet from where we left off (I think). Anyway, it's a lot, and the remaining 15 feet of wall and the door should be finished this weekend. After that, it's just roofring and rafters, pop grommets in the wall to hang it and get a belly band; figure out what kind of a door to do and we can move in. It sounds like a lot, but really it's not. Not with two of us dividing the work. I can get the khana done in an hour working alone.

I was worried about whether we'd be able to get this all done. As long as I find rattan and a boiler to make the roofring, we're good, though I do have a backup plan in place. :-)

Things are looking up in GerWorld. I can't wait to show this thing off!
