    Friday 12/16 Edition

    Once again we have rolled into another weekend. Close to the big holiday, at least that is what Walmart tells us. So what is going on in your neighborhood?

    Myself, not much. Going to try and sneak in some shop time. Only 3 more weeks of break left and lots to do.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Friday: Sanding and another topcoat on the credenza top. Mow the back yard. Yes, that's right! I mowed the front yesterday. One of the joys of living in the South!

    Saturday: Some general errands with LOML, then out for dinner.

    Sunday: The usual - I'll prepare brunch. Just a lazy day - I hope!!!

    Then back to the shop on Monday.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    My parents came back for Xmas for the first time in about 10 years, so my wife is having a "girls night" with grandma and the nieces tonight to paint nails, watch movies, and bake. I'm heading over to hang out at my brothers with dad. May head down to my nephews to play some pool and such, but Dad is scheduled for rotators cup surgery in January, so he may not be up for it.

    Saturday we're doing Xmas dinner at the steakhouse, then back to our place to open presents.

    Sunday will probably be getting a door put on the office and painting some trim to install. Have a welding project I need to get done and may get the plow put on the tractor for when it finally comes time.
