    What day is it?!

    Dave started the weekend off early, but he ended up in the ditch. I'm sure glad that turned out okay.

    We can't even come close to last weekend's great time, but here it is anyway.

    My wife's away to a weaving seminar in Cape Breton Island and I'm catching up on a big list of big jobs around home. Just keep checking them off, quick breaks for food and beverage and keep rolling.
    What's on your list?

    Went to therapy yesterday for my left knee and had a bit of a scare. The leg was slightly swollen with some discoloration near the ankle. And of course I never noticed any of this. The therapist sent me back to the doctor and had an ultrasound to check for blood clots in the leg. There were none so back working in the shop today. But going a tad bit slower. And, I guess I'll have to keep going a bit slower. Having to keep a closer eye on things cuz they said there are other possibilities but need more observation first. So, me observing me. Weird sounding. But, I'm still plugging and that's good enough for me. Supposed to be going into another monsoon here starting later this afternoon, so that will slow me down even more. But, the lakes and rivers are full and staying full. I like that.

    Continuing work on re-arranging the upstairs and cleaning up/out the stuff that just isn't needed there anymore. Have some yard work that needs catching up on. I picked up an i7 cpu & motherboard with 8 gb of ram for $100 off a co-worker, so the pinball cabinet is getting an upgrade if I have time. I also have a couple of signs to do for a co-worker.

    Making a plaque for my brother in law.

    I also have some landscaping in the works.

    I have a shed in the works, and two more after that. I also have house siding, windows, bay window, shop cabinets and a kitchen remodel and a sign for the church. I think I will be busy for awhile

    This weekend is a big letdown after last weekend. Defiantly not as much fun

    But still busy. Worked most of the day at the church cutting the grass and field. Some light maintenance to the building too. Saturday I'll be repairing my grand daughters bed (again) and getting over to her house. Also starting the repairs the chairs that Dave showed me how to do. Should be a busy woodworking weekend
    I finished the cabinet for the bathroom and got that installed. I'd say that I'll post a pic in the build section but I will totally forget to do it so I'll stick it here.

    Had lunch out that busted my diet, which I planned. Hope I won't regret it.

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