    Friday the 14th

    Working today , Venison stew this evening with friends and son's. Painting all weekend.

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

    Driving up to Flagstaff, helping Sister iin law move into her new home. Sure am glad we are having a warm spell cause normally there is a foot of snow on the ground up there in Feb.

    Taking SWMBO out for lunch today rather than to dinner tonight, took both her and my daughter out to dinner last night to avoid the crowds. Plan to do some caulking of my trim work in the basement so I can get it all painted tomorrow. May go get paint tomorrow for the walls so I can get it started, but may start laying flooring instead, kinda getting tired of walking on the concrete. It's also a long weekend for me, so hoping for some shop time since it's supposed to get up in the 50's - 60's.

    Dinner with the wife and kid tonight. Tomorrow to the library with the kid to research falcons for a project she has coming up while the wife gets her hair and nails did, massage, etc. . Then to the local woodturners group meeting in the afternoon with my dad. Hopefully watching snow melt the rest of the weekend...50s on the way next week, might even dust off the old bike and hit the trails next weekend!!

    Just finished clearing out the snow from the driveway & walkways. Started at 6am, finished at 9 am. About 12" & probably the heaviest snow I've ever handled. Even the 10 HP snow blower strained & struggled. The bottom 6" appeared to be light, then about a 3" layer of frozen slush on top of that with about another 3" of snow on top of that. Tough shoveling!

    Going to celebrate Valentines Day with dinner out tonight.

    Slacking off today while waiting on an order of some tools to finish the latest project.

    Not much going on here. Birthday party for my niece tomorrow, but quiet otherwise.

    Went up to Cleveland yesterday for a big Home & Garden Show. Didn't buy anything - just looked.

    Stopped off at the Woodcraft store while up there. Under new guy seems quite surly. Asked about a sale item; he told me that if I wanted sale items, I shouldda come last week. He was out of the, and not reordering. Also noted that the lathe related area was about doubled in size, and the guy only wanted to talk about turning. Sat there on a stool the whole time I was in the store (I was the only potential customer). Said he had a sore foot.

    Anyway, I won't be going back there. Cleveland is fifty miles from me, but there's another (good the last time I was there) Woodcraft store in Columbus - 150 miles - that I'll go to from now on.

    I am making 16.5 foot long covers for the ceiling beams in the house.

    I made a strong back jig to hold the beam covers in place as I assemble them.

    I should take pics and post the progress.

    In LA this weekend working on a SWMBO list that stretches into next week. I did manage to clear out enough space in the garage last night to turn a curly maple hollow form, so I'll see about getting it sanded and finished over the next few days. It's pretty depressing to go into my shop now, since it's been overtaken with stuff I moved out of our storage unit the last time I was in LA. The lathe and bandsaw are about the only tools that are accessible now.
