    It's Friday! - 2/7/2014 Edition

    I think this has been one of the longest weeks this year, seems like today was never going to get here.

    Tonight I'm planning to do some final mudding, need to take the wife's Jeep to get it's oil change and tires rotated. Tomorrow and Sunday I'm planning to work on priming trim that I haven't gotten to yet. Hopefully some time to pick on the guitar too.

    What's everyone else got going?

    Today is the day when I'll finally finish the jewelry box I'm making for the Love of my Life (LOML) - (did you notice that I'm now starting a new protocol with the use of acronyms?). I should be able to lay in the velvet this evening. May just bore you with pictures later.

    Also, I decided to learn how to use SketchUp8. This was decided during the jewelry box project: better to plan out the details & let the LOML decide what she wants from sketches rather than from verbal descriptions. That'll save me mucho detours. The CD fro Dave Richards "SketchUp Guide for Woodworkers" is very helpful!

    I'll be doing ceiling repair on my vaulted ceiling - then hopefully painting it.

    Next - to get a start on building the boxes to cover the beams in my vaulted ceiling.

    Then trying to get my body into the attic to install some ducting with inline fan to circulate warm air from my woodstove.

    MAN - If I can do all that I am in the good.

    Friday: Started the day by taking one of our cats to the vet for exam. Took LOML to lunch at Sunny's BBQ. Shop time this afternoon finishing a taper jig.

    Saturday: Prepare the oak parts of the queen size platform bed for dye and sealer.

    Sunday: Mostly a chill-out day - we hope!

    Carol, I'm sending my best Ron's way.

    Have another Friday Happy Hour gig tonight at a local sports bar & grill. That'll be the last one for me until the end of the month.

    Saturday morning I'm loading up and heading out to LA for a couple of weeks. Planning to make the 800 mile trip non-stop to save on lodging costs. (Assuming my back and the weather cooperate.) I need to do some fix-up, clean-up, pack-up, and general re-arranging around the house. Probably not going to get any appreciable shop time, but I'll at least get to see my tools for the first time in about 8 months. Planning to bring a few turning tools back to Albuquerque with me for a bit of playtime at Nate Davey's place.

    Tuesday morning my wife's dog got hold of a skunk in LA. She says she heard a noise in the yard and went out to find the dog shaking the skunk in his mouth. He let go of the skunk (which managed to limp away) but the dog got hosed pretty heavily. So of course now my wife is complaining about the skunk smell everywhere inside and outside the house. This is the same person who complains about the smell of cooked bacon in the house (even though she LOVES bacon). I'm not looking forward to hearing the endless whining about the skunk smell. Just kill me now.
