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.

Life is good, unfortunately its those things that make life enjoyable that get in the way of what we really want to do. Man, priorities can suck sometimes but then thats life. LOL

There is no mandate about being on LJs or submitting posts on a regular basis, remember you are not at work for “the man” here, you are free to do as you please.
We all have our ups and downs, we are all a bunch of friends here and we don’t expect any more than that of you.
Whenever you post, we all appreciate it. Until then, do what you need to take care of things in your life. :-)
