A little side project…unfinished.

I’m insulating my shed! Just half of it, and I’m doing a really bad job, but I don’t care! I had so much fun this weekend. I listened to the soundtrack of Hamilton while badly cutting foam board and bashing it between the studs. I made some big mistakes with the ceiling and had to stop until next weekend. (Let’s just say I wasted some materials and forgot to protect my face against the fiberglass that’s in mineral wool batts. My mouth and eyes, yes. My forehead and cheeks, no.)

It’s all good. Er, good enough.

    How exciting! It will be warm in winter, and cool in summer. Will you get a little window air conditioner for it?

Those photos I talked about.

On Friday evening, we got done with the basement work that absolutely had to be done. The workers come on Monday morning to begin whatever it is they are doing. I am quite proud of myself for not going in this weekend to work on anything else. (It kind of doesn’t matter since there’s nowhere […]

Fire Musings

Fire Musings

A while back, I jokingly said to someone that Council Fire was my mediation. It was an effort to make it seem more important than just the fact that I like to burn stuff up. But then I thought about it, and I might be onto something. I read an online discussion about mediation and […]

More of the same, without photos.

My photos won’t upload, so later I’ll do a big photo dump. Yesterday was more of the same. Lloyd and I hated out the ‘junk’ stuff from the art room, several tables, boxes and boxes and boxes of files (children/staff/records), and some shelves. Some of it was moved to the server room, some to the […]

Short update

We moved the art over last evening, and today it will be moving all the ‘extras’ in the room – the art supplies, boxes, containers of junk and maybe the center’s files that are in there. We’ll see how it goes.

Unexpected project

Unexpected project

It was a pretty normal day. I forgot my phone at home, which was a pain, but not a big deal. At noon, my director gave me two pieces of news. 1) I needed to turn in my insurance/housing paperwork by tomorrow or there would be problems with my paycheck, and 2) the room where […]
