Sunday night and I finally finished refinishing my vanity. Actually it belonged to my mother and is the one I remember her sitting at while I watched her brush her hair. It didn't match any of my bedroom furniture so I refinished it. I'd say the match is pretty darn good. I sure don't get things done as quickly as I used to. I have to work awhile then rest awhile. I have bad arthiritis in my hands and I can't do what I once did. A few years ago I had surgery to remove the basil thumb joints in each hand. The surgery is tough but it was well worth it. I just don't have the grip strength I once had and my hands get tired. No more piano playing or hand sewing but I can do just about anything else I want to do. Modern medicine...sure is good. I just wish it were affordable for everyone but I guess we won't see it done this go around. At least they tried.
