    Friday here

    So anything exciting going on this weekend. I'll continue to clean and re-organize the shop. I watch the race on Sunday after church.

    Might sweep the floor in the shop. Might even get cool enough to light the wood stove. But, I do have a argument paper due Monday, a 5 page tornado paper due Monday and a big ol' algebra test coming up next week. Might just bed down with the books. Talking rain Sunday, yea right, heard that before.

    Finishing up some kitchen cabinets tonight to get painted. Having a Halloween party this weekend, so got some regular and white chili to cook up on Saturday and my wife is making apple pie (the drink, not a pie) to serve up via the margarita maker. Going to see extended family Sunday for a fall get-together as well.
