On March 26, I got an email from Tim with just the words "SAVE THE DATE - Saturday, April 12" with no other explanations. When asked about it, he'd give me no answers.
"Fine", I said, "but can our Facebook readers ask questions?"
He said, "Sure, as long as they are fairly general and yes or no questions."
So that evening, I posted the following on Facebook.
Well, I just received an email from my incredible hubby, Tim, with this photo (SAVE THE DATE) and the text read...
"Saturday, April 12th. That is all. For now…."
So, I get to ask 20 questions. If you could ask him a question for me, what would it be? Remember... only "yes" or "no" questions!
But in the end, I had a bowl. I MADE A BOWL!!! It is the most beautiful bowl I have ever seen! I love everything about it. I lovingly applied finish to the bowl after I got it home, buffing it between coats, and applying enough finish to give the bowl a beautiful patina.
Of course, now I want my own lathe. Tim and I are in negotiations as we speak :) But, even if I don't get a lathe, even if I never make another bowl, I did get to make one. I can't imagine a more wonderful way to spend a day, or a more wonderful husband.
Thanks, Othy... I will remember this day 20 years from now... it was magical!
The bowl was made from ambrosia maple.
BTW... Tim made a bowl, too. He isn't done finishing his yet, but I will share photos of his bowl when it is completed!
