It will be a mix of trying to clean up my shop after phase 1 of a cabinet job, getting ready for a tool sale, trying to find a place for my new tools, and checking out LJs.
How about you Cricket? More camping with buttered coffee ? :))

Mixture of family time and a few small projects and trying to set up my new shop area. I got all week off so I’m pretty excited but it’s to hot to do much outside other then play in the pool with the kids

I don’t tend to camp during the summer months because the Texas temps are insane.

I am thinking about just curling up on my couch for the day.

Going to spend a little time with family in the evening, maybe clean the mess in the shop and work on some orders I got behind on.
