The ones on the right--those are the ones that we just let dry on the table and then pressed under books. Our normal method.
The ones on the left--I fussed with for over two weeks trying to press them as they dried. I used newspapers inbetween each sheet to absorb the water and had to change them like four times--on and on--futzing and futzing. Finally I thought they were all dry and oh so nice and flat. Worth the trouble, right? Piled them up and set them on a shelf in the bookcase.
A couple days later I notice them. They had all warped together! Massive waves! Do you believe it?! ROFL!!
So--the simple method we were using all along works the best for us. Just let them totally dry on the table and THEN press them under books. Or we can use a press when Leah makes one. :)
So funny! I keep chuckling just looking at them. The best laid plans, eh? hehe! Live and learn.
Sunny this morning! Third gorgeous day with cooler temperatures. Extra glad since PitaPaseo has no AC. I'm going out about 11am to start the car and make sure it will kick over--just in case I need a ride to my appointment at 1pm. I don't think so. Pita's been starting nicely. But it's been a while since I have driven her--a week ago yesterday. Just want to double check. Can't afford to miss another appointment or I am not allowed to make another appointment for six months.
And then Caroline is coming later--at 3pm. So I need to get moving--pick up cat toys and gather the garbage together. I'm probably the only person in the world who lives in a one-bedroom apartment and has six wastebaskets! ROFL! :):)
