This morning I entered my sewing room for the first time in a few months. Without realizing what could transpire when a few weeks back I asked my husband to put the air conditioner into the sewing room, I soon discovered today as I removed a small pile of projects on the side of my sewing desk.
Please keep in mind, I adore my husband and appreciate so much of what he does for me. And, it has been a few months since I have even attempted to go into my sewing room, due to my recent surgeries. So, I guess I should expect to see some things that need to be tidied up.
As I take the few items off the table, in front of the window where he place the air conditioner, I begin to look at the curtains. I have a nice sheer behind the curtains that I have tie backs on. Of course, you add an air conditioner and you need to tie those sheers back as well.
The right side was “stuffed” behind the curtain, and yet the left side had this small bungee cord tying both the curtain and sheet back. It made me laugh in sheer delight, as I called out his name in humor while giggling. (Note: he was at work, so he doesn’t yet know about my recent discovery of how he helped me out). Only a man would consider a bungee cord as a home décor tieback! Well, I suppose I would too if that was all I had, at least for a temporary fix until I either picked some up or created some.
So without complaint and giggling as I work, as I still find this quite funny, I removed that tiny bungee cord and placed it aside as I fixed the curtain, to make my view a little more appealing.
What I’m trying to understand though, is that he knows that I have this “need” to have things symmetrical, why he didn’t bother to have another bungee cord on the other side to pull that sheer back. I know he has more, because when I was shopping for “stocking stuffers” at Christmas, I had given him a cute container full of them.
I will remain thankful though. He could have used duct tape.
I love that his support for my craft and his willingness to do things for me.
