    It's The Weekend!

    Looking forward to a nice, quiet mid winter weekend here, after a busy week of travel and meetings.
    I'm making some progress in the shop and planning some minor upgrades and repairs there and in the house. Also, getting some paperwork caught up and off my mind. Then, some good food and movies.

    What's on your program?

    It's a 3 day weekend for me and I'll be starting the downstairs bathroom remodel since the grandson won't be home. The plan is the pull all the drywall and replace it with new and may put in a dropped ceiling to be able to access mechanical stuff easier. Also need to replace the main waterlines for the house while I've got it open. Never know how things will go until the walls are open though. Other than that I may get some time to get the LED lighting on the pinball machine. My wife and I already did a V-day dinner this week and stuff with the grandson and daughter last night, but I may come up with a surprise for her.

    Woodturner's meeting tomorrow afternoon with my dad, then out with some friends while the girl hangs with her cousins. Sunday will be shop time after more snow shoveling, 3-5" on the way Saturday night...looking forward to the higher temps predicted for next weekend.

    My machine is up to the height I want - so the legs are as done as they are gonna be for a long time.

    I am working on a modification to a humidor for a soon to be retired coworker.

    Home from my Arizona trip. Have really bad laryngitis and I have to preach this Sunday so am laying low and nursing the throat. Laundry will have to wait. Free shipping at Lee Valley so I have to get my order in for the t-slot tracks for the CNC table.

Maybe do some shop re arranging Since I don't do any wood working in there I need to re purpose some of the space. Make room for my new top secret project. I will do my food bank volunteering this afternoon and as usual church on Sunday morn.

    I've been down with a cold for the past few days, then on top of that I threw out my back this morning while coughing. Should make tonight's gig interesting, but as they say, the show must go on. We'll be celebrating Lincoln's birthday a bit early.

    Saturday will be a combination of working at a friend's dry cleaning shop and rehearsal with my other band.

    Sunday I'm hoping to just veg out and do as little as possible. It's been pretty hectic and stressful around here for the past month or so.

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

    It's supposed to be cold and rainy this weekend with snow coming in on Monday and Tuesday... If I can get the shop up to at least 50 degrees, need to work on my art project for the art guild's spring art show... working on building a couple of kaleidoscopes and maybe a teleidoscope.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
