Always Something to Do — Ole!

After finishing my oddball list I have moved on to some other minor tasks.

Be sure to buy extra candy to make up for any that inadvertently gets eaten during the filling of the piñata.

Actually my party partner filled the sombrero piñata with candy — chocolate candy.

Above is a close-up of the fill hole which is about and inch and a half at its widest.

Any candy must be fed into the hole a piece at a time.

Fun-size candy fits easily and fills the cavity inside.

A standard store-bought piñata holds about 2 pounds of candy.

When it is heavy with candy it’s time to hang it up.

What kind of candy is in your piñata?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
