Things Are Looking Up

I can't explain the how or the why, but that grumpiness I whined about last week has resolved itself.

The cold and snow are still with us. Gardens sits waiting patiently for me. My workshop is still cold and in disarray. Christmas boxes have been, for the most part, mailed out. The lights and decorations have, mostly, been hung. And, the trip to Guatemala is further in the past. I'm glad to be home. Maybe listening to my six year-old granddaughter's stream-of-consciousness phone conversation helped...

Plans are in the offing for reorganizing the workshop, moving the wood storage racks to a more convenient spot in the barn, and figuring out how to get rid of cut-offs and scraps (I have some scraps that are several years old - if I haven't used them by now, I don't think I will). I'm counting on more storage and less horizontal surface will help de-clutter the shop. One can hope.

Closing in the Boat Cave is a bit trickier this year. With the gantry in place, the ceiling insulation is more piecemeal than it was last year. Still, making progress.

So, for whatever reason, I am in a much better frame of mind than I was last week and things are looking up.

Happy Holidays to everyone!


  1. Season's greetings Bob, may you and yours have a happy and safe time and a great 2017. I'm looking forward to seeing Gardens getting a wet bum in the new year.
    Cheers, Denis.

    1. Thank you Denis. I, too, am looking forward to seeing Gardens' launch in the new year!
