Had a rare day off yesterday. I have an ongoing list in my head of the things I need to do, and the things I want to do on my days off. Unfortunately, I decided that it was time to start on the “need to do” list, which usually means working on the ongoing renos to my house. Don’t get me wrong, part of me has really enjoyed doing the renovating of my basement into a liveable space. The slow collecting of tools and skills for the work was what got me interested in woodworking. Anyways, I spent the day fishing wire through the walls for some baseboard heaters instead of working on my router table. Maybe tomorrow….

I know the list well… I know that once the temperatures are lower than 80 degrees during the day I will be in the attic, changing out recessed lights, adding bathroom fans, and sealing all the little “air infiltration” holes that move conditioned air into the attic.

I did that yesterday; it was sposetobe 100 degrees, so it was easy enough to rationalize staying inside, even with my table pieces laid out in the driveway. -and since the house had OBVIOUSLY been completely neglected for the shop for…i won’t even say. -i knew i had to, because it will SURELY be less than the 90s soon, and return to neglect inside. -and i don’t mean all that extra nice stuff Dukegijoe is talking about…
