« Part 69: More shop cleanup. Making progress. I forgot I had some of this stuff! Part 70 of Workshop Development series Part 71: The drywall is up! »

I have been an idiot and did not secure the shuttered vents for the AC, and it appears I am now paying the price. I appear to have small furry not so welcome guests in my shop. A quick trip to HD and I now have a couple of bait stations out there. Dog resistant so my shop dog won’t cause himself problems. I mostly pray that the critters go back OUT the vents before they die. Ick…

I have sized up the next panel, and have it installed. I have one panel left to trim and install, then it is time for mud and tape, then the split wall…

The progress is good, although It looks like the first of the year is going to be missed. I will be very close though.

The fun (yeah right) part is coming with the mud and tape. Yuck!

D-Con said my PA, and you will never even see a dead mouse, or a live one any more. Indeed, the Warfarin laced pellets work well, and solved our mice in the garage problem. They come in with the cars and any cracks near the doors, usually in the winter. But haven’t seen one for years now.

Just did shop org yesterday. I got an Incra Miter 1000HD for Christmas for each shop, (seems to me that you have one of these), and I will finish installing that today, and then finish the second pedestal for the torsion box bench. I revamped the pegboard tool arrangement to get all my measurement tools in one place, adding a few things from Veritas and Leigh Valley, also Christmas presents.

We had another great day yesterday. We ate at Olive Garden, shopped at the local food Co-op for dinner, and I made barbecued chicken breasts on the grill, baked yams in the toaster oven, and Sherie made cauliflower. There are great grocery stores around here, with the co-op in Mt. Vernon, and a big organic store in Anacortes. In the summer the road side stands and markets sell absolutely fresh produce. Sherie got a bunch of stuff for her quilting – fiber arts hobby at a fabulous sale at a store here in La Conner. Just a fun day for both of us. While we drove through the farmland to get to Mt Vernon, we gawked at the swans that are wintering here, and eating in the fields. Beautiful Trumpeters right up close to the road in places. Soon the snow geese will be here also.
