    Friday April 3 long weekend so whats up?

    Well the week has been a long one for me. Pretty much face the next few the same until leg is back to normal.
    Drugs restict me from doing anything that requires concentration and steady hand. Driving me crazy. But its getting better by the day.

    Whats everyone else up to with the long weekend

    Happy Easter ya all.
    cheers

    Adapting part of my router planer sled to use as a giant finger joint jig....jigzilla. Then will use it to build a couple of cajon drums.

    Long weekend? They're all the same length for a lot of us!

    We spent a few days at LOMLs folks - got back last night. I worked on my CNC this morning making updates to the firmware to clear up a couple of things.

    Friday will be some time tweaking my CNC a bit more, then take care of the yard work for the week - mowing, edging, etc.

    Saturday will be some shop cleanup along with more playing on my CNC.

    Sunday morning, I'll prepare brunch as usual. After that, I guess we'll have to decide on some kind of activity since there's no race!

    Quick poll: do you get Good Friday off?
    nope here.

    Long weekend? Oh hah, I guess some folks get Good Friday off... Can't complain though I get plenty of other vacation time (and half the time I don't know its a holiday until I show up to an empty office anyway - or LOML smacks me in the back of the head to remind me when I'm heading out the door ).

    LOML said that when she was on the pain meds for the broken leg was the first time that daytime television actually seemed interesting/good. That's about when she knew she was taking to much

    Boss is on call so we're stuck around the house.. Plenty of projects to work on in theory We'll see what we get to..

    I'd actually prefer a lemon meringue pie ... not so much into lemonade.

    Just finished up another long week at work, start a new sprint tomorrow, but at least taking off early for the weekend. Mostly doing a lot of cleaning and still trying to get the back yard picked up. I did some of the supplies for stabilizing some wood, so will tinker with some of that this weekend.

    Brined a ham the other day and Friday night it goes on the smoker. Dries for 8 hours the smokes for 10 hours. Son and family here Sunday to destroy the evidence. To bad the the kids don't like ham. Good weekend for family.
    Love and grace to all.
