Everyone, I have a little secret for you. Well, actually it is Ryan's secret and we can't know about it. He has had a mysterious brown grocery sack in the art room closet for going on two years now. Mind you, that means that he moved the sack from our old art room to the one in our new house. Apparently he is working on something for me because I'm not allowed to look in it, let alone pick it up. I wonder if it is really heavy? Or maybe it's crazy light and he's working on a pillow?
It's been in the works for a long time and he never ever has time to work on it. I wonder if he will even still be interested in it by the time he gets around to completing the project.
I really hate ruining surprises. In fact, I think the act of the surprise itself is usually the best part of the deal. This is why it is easy for me, while home from work with a sore throat today, to not even be tempted to take a peek.
We have one other secret box in our house as well. My mom made us a time capsule from our wedding and we can't open it until 2025. What could be in there??? I guess we'll all have to tune in 2025 to find out!
The last time Ryan had a secret project for me it ended up being this incredible earring rack. He snuck a piece of wood from Dunsmuir, California (home of the best drinking water in the world!) on an anniversary trip through California last year and turned it into an earring rack for me.
I think he hid the wood into his pant leg or something so I didn't see it. Then he was walking funny and he told me he had twisted his ankle or something. The sneaky story was very elaborate in its detail. It must have been because usually I'm onto suspect activity in a millisecond. None of his pants are terribly baggy, either, so he is obviously a very good sneak. I can't wait to find out the mystery contents of the brown grocery sack (even if I have to wait another year)!
