Well, I am sick and tired of working and gettin no where. I built a new picnic table for the family earlier this summer and we haven’t gotten to use it but once. Between working and the darn weather here in middle TN (our hottest/driest on record) we just haven’t been able to get into the yard. However, I can feel the change is coming. I know that shortly it will be fall and I will be able to get into the garage and start cutting wood, it won’t matter to me if all I do is just make sawdust, I just want to smell fresh cut wood. I have soooooo many projects running thru my mind, magazine racks for the bathrooms, fishing rod racks for the garage, more flower beds, the list seems endless. I hope to be able to get just a little bit ahead soon and will be able to buy just a little bit of wood (nice wood, not 2×4’s) and can make pretty things…lol. Maybe if I build something nice for my wife I can talk her into more wood to make her more pretty things….our bed is a cheap metal “THING” and I REALLLLLLY want to make a nice soild wood one, no particle board or plywood.

Well all…’s late here in the firehouse and I really need to go to bed so that I can be well rested (yea right) if I am needed in the middle of the night.

For now,

Yes it will end, but you might not be happy with the results.

Enjoy what you’ve got while you’ve got it. And try to make more time for sawdust. It’l make you feel happier.

I hope you get a chance to make some sawdust soon, Adrian! Living in Michigan, with a currently unheated shop, I’m sort of facing the opposite problem: soon it’ll be too cold to make sawdust here, unless I can figure something out for my barn.

Like Karson said, we have to enjoy what we have, while we have it. God bless!

and.. all we have is what we have… all we can do is what we are doing…in this moment which is life itself. Everything else is history or the mystery.

If it were not for insurance (provided by working)” I could retire today. Yeah we all know how it feels. Ya just got to make the time to do the things you want to do. Sleep is over rated anyway:)

Oh quit your whinning and grab that hose and put the wet stuff on the hot stuff. You’re the only guy I know who gets away with sleeping on the job.

As for making saw dust….just take care of tools.
