The Mayan calendar may have been a tad off over all, but it would have been right on if it had predicted the end of my woodworking year. Yesterday, after clearing my driveway of 10 inches of fresh snow and delivering the snowblower to my neighbor, I slipped coming back across the street and broke my right ankle. So, daily forays to the shop/garage will be on hold for a bit. Getting around on crutches is about all I can handle right now. Too bad I don’t have some little projects to sand and polish….things I can do sitting at a table.
I suppose another 6 weeks or so will find me ready to stand by my tools, having missed them for so long. I will have to spend some time planning those first projects after I get back in harness.
Merry Christmas and Happy 2013 to all the LJ’ers….you will know I am back making sawdust when that first project of the new year gets posted.

Wow..JB…what a bit of bad luck. I hope your ankle gets better really soon so you can get back in the shop. Nothing worse than that shop calling you and not being able to go out and play.

Sorry to hear about your mishap. Now is the time to learn how to use Sketchup and if you already know how, it is time to draw all those projects that you are planning for 2013. Hope recover with no bad after effects.
