I fit the second section into the bottom window this morning!
As you know from a previous post, I've been working on this window project for the last few weeks and it is finally done. I am pretty pleased with the results......but I also know where the mistakes are. I enjoy glass work, but I do not consider myself a pro at it. Just Google to see what some people do! Some of it can make you cry.
The thing about a glass window though, is that the very charm of the light and color makes up for a lot of the imperfections......unless you are really looking for them.
DD can be like that.
I feel like my two "honeys," who have the power to decree a punishment, have been very lenient with me over some outbursts of attitude lately, because in the midst of it all, I have been doing several major projects that have benefited them both. Ana passed me again for last week and Rosa has not punished me for anything since we ended the 2016/2017 marathon over a month ago.
But I also know I have not exactly been an angel.......more like a very productive, but impatient and irritable contractor. And on one hand I appreciate their balance and apparent 'mercy'.....but I also wonder if maybe a different approach would be better? Maybe instead of good and bad cancelling each other out, maybe issuing both an award and a punishment would send me a better message? ( for example: Rosa: "Honey, that window looks great, I think you have a treat coming......but you also snapped at me last night, so we do have some 'attitude adjustment'to take care of first." )
Depending on how its handled, I think I would not resent the punishment......but I think that's what Rosa (and maybe Ana too) are concerned about. And it is a legitimate concern. My feelings get hurt easily when I feel I'm trying hard to please and get called out for an impatient response. And I know the effort I put forth in trying to make things nice for my loved ones is high. BUT....deep down, I AM a DD-oriented person and those occasional trips over a lap DO help keep me balanced. So I don't know what the answer is.
For now, I am just going to see what happens.
