    It's Friday - 7/19/2013 Edition

    It's here!!! Has been a warm week, not much is getting done around my shop lately as the ice tea by the pool won't drink itself. Saturday it's supposed to have a chance of rain, but I think I may go get materials for the Master Bedroom Closet and Storage project. Drawings are only part way finished but will buy more than enough for the job. Sunday it's supposed to warm back up, so I may have to focus on more pool time.

    Tonight, my wife said something about going out for some occasion, not sure what she has planned.

    So what's everyone else got going?

    I have hopes on finishing up a trim project that has been taking WAY too long and get started on a wine box for a wedding next month. Oh and need to mow again...

    Just replaced an old 11.8K BTU window A/C unit with a 15.1K Btu unit. Old unit died during this hot 90+ °F weather, but better late than never. These things are heavy for an "older" person.

    Just had a third Ultra Sound examination performed this AM for blood clots (2) resulting the the knee replacement surgery and was informed that the clots have cleared up. Good news! Hopefully I can get off the Xarelto blood thinner medication ASAP as that has caused some adverse side effects (swelling, pain, & affecting the PT implementation).

    Hoping to complete the wiring of the HFDC today.

    Tomorrow the plan is for us to visit Lake Winnipesaukee (Wolfeboro in particular - our favorite lake spot), shop, dinner & watch all the crazies boating around, especially docking their boats. It's amazing how many people have boat, but not the seamanship/boat handling skills needed to properly use them. Strange & humorous things happen at the docks - interesting to watch.

    Taking the afternoon off to go swimming with the girl today...Quiet evening of pizza and a few beers with another couple and their 3 kids tonight. Tomorrow the humidity is suppose to be gone so I hope to cut up some walnut and maple I picked up recently and rough out a bunch of bowls. Then some BBQ on my sister's new deck with a few cold ones probably as well. Sunday, yard work that needs to be caught up on since it's been so hot!

    Hope to finish setting tile in one of the oldest son's bathrooms in his home.

    Then begin cleanup in preparation for grouting and then texture the room.

    It's time for a road trip for us. Heading to Alabama to see LOMLs mom, then to OKC to see some of my kids and grandkids. Next, to San Antonio and finally back home on the 28th. Needless to say, no shop time!!!!!

    Going to be too hot to do much of anything. Will try and get a few things done, but I'm not going to get too ambitious.

    Going to hit a concert at the zoo tonight after work (Ryan McGarvey). The rest of the weekend will be mostly getting settled back into my ABQ apartment and finish unpacking all the stuff I brought back with me from LA last weekend. Also going to try to get the sanding completed on the guitar body that I'll be sending to Dave Hawksford for painting. I ran out of time to finish the sanding in LA, but definitely will get 'er done here in ABQ.

    Just had two rush design jobs dumped on me to spoil the weekend. Have not designed submerged gravel wetlands before. I have to say the Maryland is at the forefront in advancing environmental site design...this should be interesting. Also want to see if I can find a smoker for some genuine ABTs.
