After a very long, wonderful and enjoyable day yesterday it was decided that we would have a nice day at home. Perhaps tinker a bit with on going projects. There are some things I want to gather up and send home. Some things I want to make. Etc.....
I believe I mentioned that Rainer bought an upright piano that he hopes to turn into a shelving unit for the hallway. The piano was free but shipping was $100.
The day was sunny and cool for a change so we decided it would be a fun day to tackle that.
WOW!! You wouldn't believe what goes into the making of a piano. We took the front of and simply stared in amazement .
So while I didn't see much country side today, I did have a rare and unique experience. Oh admit it, did you know what the guts of a piano looked like? Okay so maybe you didn't care LOL but you have to admit it's amazing.
We had leftover corned beef and cabbage dinner. Of all the things I COULDN'T find here, and corned beef can be found everywhere. Go figure. I also have a new favorite dessert, it's called Pavlova, look it up. Sort like a hard angel food cake and they put fresh or canned fruit on top with whipped cream.
Get this, they have canned strawberries, boysenberries and mango. Do we have that in a can? Oh excuse me "tin". I say can and no one knows what the hell I'm talking about. I know we have fruit in a can but they have some pretty exotic stuff in a "tin".
So the day was not only relaxing, it was educational and fun...See you tomorrow.
