My hubby knows me well. Instead of flowers or candy, he made me a drying rack:
It's 36" by 36", the top is high enough the cats can't jump on it from the ground (they're too fat to jump well) and the whole thing folds up to about 4" flat for storage. I've been wanting a nice flat surface to dry larger items where the cats can't get to and where I don't need to clear off in order to eat dinner.
How cool is that?
