Two together

Today was cold with gray skies.  The school where I was today had a fire alarm go off.  Of course, we thought it was a fire drill but it seemed unusual for them to call something on a nasty day.  We went outside with the kids and no one had coats on.  So we froze.  After about 40 minutes, we all trooped into the gym until all was clear in the classrooms.  No one got back to class until around 10 a.m.  The kids were psyched all day. 

Seems we won't get the storm they were predicting.  In fact, we may have warm temperatures next week.  Many won't have Thanksgiving, I'm sure.  They are opening up Fort Monmouth (which they closed last year) for about 600 families who are homeless.  At least they will have winter shelter and the kids will be able to have a stable environment of a sort.


Tonight I put the windows in the green house and glued on the two ends.  I was going to smooth out the bay window seams but they won't need it.  :)

Then I glued the walls in the carriage house.  You would think they would go up easily.  Nope.

One thing that was annoying was the gluing of the acetate windows.  Directions say to use white glue.  I did.  Nothing.  So I tried super glue.  Seems to have worked.  I'll see in the morning.  If they have popped off during the night, it doesn't work.  LOL

If I work tomorrow, there will be a few little things done tomorrow night.  If I'm off, I hope to be able to put all of the houses together with their windows.  I also want to have the roof sections on by the weekend.  We'll  see!

I'm anxious to finish these now. 

Until then...
