Haiku for You 2

Inspired by Michael Malachi’s love for furniture and haikus.

I did buy this piece

With my own money from a job

She holds my secrets

I bought this secretary’s desk with money from my first paycheck. I bought it about four years ago with money earned from cleaning cars in Minnesota. We replaced two knobs, some fancy ones that we found at the local Habitat for Humanity, and give the wood a drink with wood polish about twice a year. Other than that, I have left her as I found her. Inside are many trinkets! And lots of paperwork I need to sort through – an odious task.

Either way, I love this piece, and I love Michael’s works, too (which he upcycles!!) Make sure to check him out.

I'm just a skinny girl with a lot of hair and a couple of stories. I'm 26, married, and have two very active, sparkly-eyed babies. My mother lives with me so I've got my best ally and source of wisdom here, too. Everything I do is for my family. We like to garden, paint, start projects, read, and watch a little bit of Netflix. I'm working on my cooking, parenting with patience, and learning how to love life where I'm at. Though I've abandoned my degree three times in two different states (yes, I said three times), I have listened and watched and picked up a couple of tips. Most of what I write is entirely non-fictional because I let life spin the tales. I'm ready to learn more and am excited to meet others on the same path. This is to serve as a record of what I've done. All pictures have been taken by me, unless otherwise credited.
