It’s been 3 weeks since I’ve had opportunity to visit LJ. Some of you who took the time to welcome me and comment on my initial posts probably figured I was another of those folks who appear and disappear.
The first week, my 10-year-old had spring break. I took the week off and worked on flooring the attic of the shop – got it about 1/2 finished. I had thought that I could knock it out in 3 or 4 days, but I don’t have the stamina that I needed for that. In my usual life I sit in an office, and I’m not what anybody (in his right mind) would call “fit”. But, all the same, it was nice to get part of it done – and be that much closer to being able to move the “storage” stuff upstairs to free up floor space in the shop.
The second week, I was unexpectedly called out of town for work… then I got sick and then,...
... upon my return a lightening strike took out my cable modem, router and (most sadly) very nice network printer. So only yesterday I got the network back up and running at home here.
So I’m back (or will be back). I’ve still got to finish the taxes. :-( But I expect to get a fair sum back :-) And meanwhile, despite being repeated flooded with rain, the garden calls and things must be planted, so I don’t know when I’ll actually get back to anything like wookworking or even to spend time on LJ.
But, that’s life.
PS. I do have some photos of the shop, but haven’t yet taken the time to dig them out of the camera and post them.
