Nancy, Mandy and Lisa and I got together at Bean Heads this morning to clean it up. The coffee shop closed in 2005 and has been empty since. It was originally a Bank and has two giant safes in it, marble baseboards and beautiful woodwork. Lots of atmosphere for our Collective Art Winter Gallery.
We dusted and swept and vacuumed and polished and scrubbed and mopped till it was sparkling.
What a great group to work with. Each of us fell into a task. No one had to tell anyone else what to do. No one stood around talking or discussing what should be done. We all just picked up our cleaning tools and got to work.
Then, half way through, when we were all starting to wain, Lisa broke out her chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Mandy swears two of them make the perfect lunch.
