All my bags are packed....



...I'm ready to go....la,la,la,la.....Look out retreat here we come......maybe! It seems the ice will be reaching right along our path tonight and tomorrow morning. All we need to do is make it there and then we can be iced in for a few days. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. We just need to stay 20 minutes ahead of the storm!




This is the table/ironing surface DH made for me. It goes on top of my rolling tool box. But since it ended up being an empty box while not in use, he added modifications. My rulers act as a bottom so I can store things inside. He added a handle for carrying ease. Once I get to retreat and empty it out, I can put it on top of the tote and viola' an ironing surface. It's a little hard to see here but it is full. I had to add a piece of velcro to stabilize the one ruler. We'll work on it more later and get it a bit less rigged together.I didn't take a picture of it on the top of the tote. All in all though I am thrilled with it.
I sure wish blogger would get it together. It drives me crazy that I cannot log in while I am leaving a comment. URGH!
See ya when I get back....hope all are safe from the ice and cold.

I always have to edit immediately after posting.....it looks one way in the draft and another in the blog. Ish!!!! Trying again..... and again....

I hope you made it to retreat! Where was your retreat held? I have one coming up in February. It's close to home which is nice, because I like to be able to come home and sleep in my own bed.

Have fun on your retreat! I'll be watching for your report when you get back.

Your ironing board/ruler storer is pure genius! Have a great time :-)

Nancy said...

Yup. That happens to me, too. The "preview" doesn't look like the post. Edit edit edit. Hope the retreat was great . . . .

I hope the retreat is going well. It sounds great to be snowed in at a nice warm retreat spot somewhere! I love the ironing board and tote. It's so nice to have a handy DH!

I have the same set-up (toolbox & ironing board). I love your idea for storing the rulers though.

I can't wait to see what your retreat produced!
