    It's Friday - 3/8/2013 Edition

    Well, almost there, but it's 5:00 somewhere. Hoping to finish up some master bath stuff and get some drawer fronts and doors cut out with it being 60* today and tomorrow, need to cut some crown and put on a finish coat of paint on all the trim I installed this week and caulk around the floor.

    Still trying to talk my wife into the new compact tractor, but may have to settle for a zero turn or smaller garden/yard tractor (JD X500) for now. Planning to go look at a few of those tomorrow morning, maybe drag her along.

    May also try to clean out the house garage and finally get the xmas decorations back into the attic while it's warm.

    What's everyone else got going?

    Rewiring the shop. Making everything a true 20 amp circuit and separating the circuits. Never planned on having so much going on, that I would trip a breaker every now and then. Won't be a problem after this weekend.
    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.

    Way more than I have time for.

    Old over the range microwave died. We picked up a replacement the other day, so need to install that. The big trick here is that they never vented it to the outside, so I get to climb up in the attic and run the ducting through the roof. Might get interesting since there may be a couple of layers of roof to go through. I.e. they added on to the house and the kitchen is under where the two roofs would meet. Might just run it off to the side a bit.

    Still need to finish up the entertainment center, and I think I heard someone remind me something about a table.

    Plenty to do.

    Finishing up a bowl I'm donating to an auction for a homeless shelter tomorrow morning. Then I hope to get the dust collection all put together so I can move on to making things. Suppose to be warm but wet all weekend so shop time might work out for me this time around.

    Day off today, but already have 71 hours in this week, and have to work tomorrow. So a few housekeeping things today, a little cooking (pan fried chicken with fresh asparagus and fresh strawberries for dessert), and working on the layout for the solar installation for the Putter Palace.

    Headed out in a bit to go see some friends playing at a local tavern. Probably spend some time with a friend tomorrow helping to pick out accessories for a new iPhone, then a nephew's baby shower on Sunday. Other than that, the rest of the weekend is pretty wide open and I'm gonna just let the winds take me wherever they want.
