Miro and Emily learn to recycle

After experimenting with my cardboard box stand-up desk, I bought one that raises and lowers. It's a heavy, solid piece of equipment that sits on top of my existing desk. No assembly required! What's not to like?
Oops. Forgot about the window reflection revealing the junk-covered printer table. The Varidesk came in a Very Big Box, double sided with thick cardboard. I wondered how I'd ever get it all cut down to fit in the recycling bin. Suddenly, I had help.

 They began work on a rectangular piece from inside the box. You can see part of the box on the left in photo #1. Keeping everything on the small landing contained the wreckage--or so I thought.

 Emily paused to see why I was just standing there instead of helping.

They are researching for a term paper on deconstruction.

Then, for a moment, all was still.

Emily decided to resume work in the living room.

Now, please excuse me while I go fetch the garden rake. Good thing Thanksgiving Dinner is not at my house.


  1. Nice work, Miro and Emily! Recycling if very important!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  2. Very good job. You can even use the pieces for confetti on New Years Eve

  3. OMD!!!! That is some IMPRESSIVE work you two!!! There is NOTHIN' I likes better than gettin' into the recyclin' bin, or the cardboard boxes!!! I do likes your style...I likes takin' my time sometimes too...little itty bitty bits of cardboard..then I make spitballs outta it and trade them for a treatie! (Ma thinks I have somethin' bad, and feels 'conned' when she says 'drop' and it's only a spitball and not like a battery or something dangerous!) Butts she HAS to give me a treatie for droppin' it..it's the rule! BOL Have you taught your Moms this trick? You gotta..it's loads of funs!! ☺
    Anyhu, I hopes you guys all have a FABulous Turkey Day, and I hopes you gets lots of turkey and stuffin'!

  4. I guess a garden rake WOULD be the easiest way to clean up that cardboard! ;)

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Sherry. We are very grateful for you, and for your continued friendship.
