is clearly a virtue I do not possess. Hubby's office is in an alcove that overlooks the dining room. I don't clean his office because the last time I did, he was unable to find what he was looking for. It is now off limits to me. In order to take care of the issue of people being able to see the lovely state of his office, I wanted to build an ornamental screen to sort of make it look like a separate room.

You should know that Hubby is very skilled at the fine art of woodworking. The only problem is that Hubby is the busiest man I know. I realize he can make just about anything out of wood. His workmanship is beyond compare. He said he'd build a screen with wooden frames to match the decor of our home.

Seeing how busy Hubby is, I went and bought a screen for his office. I know it's not homemade, but like I said, I have a problem with patience. I don't have much of it sometimes. It's something I must work on. I know.

Yet another thing we have in common... no patience! It drives my hubby crazy that I want everything done NOW!

That's awesome that your hubby is so good at wordworking. That's a wonderful skill to have!

LOL! Doggy Mama, you know, I think I know what my problem is. Whenever I want things done, I want them done NOW! You are too funny. We do seem to live sort of parallel lives! LOL! I need to learn that whole "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" thing. When women tell men they want something done, they mean immediately. For men, they think as long as it's done eventually, it's fine. LOL! *sigh* I must try to be more patient :) Don't you think the screen is pretty though? LOL!

Hallo mate! That screen looks strikingly Japanese inspired. Longing for your Japan days, perhaps? :0) I'll send you some soba noodles!

I like it. It's very pretty Christine. And you ARE patient, girl! You have more patience than anyone I know. Sometimes you're a bit too hard on yourself though
