Will you be making any changes in the coming year?

I’m hoping I wake up on the top side of the dirt every day!!
We will be going to take that train ride in Canada through the Rockies in the summer.
I want to clean out my barn by building a lean- to on the back side to house all the logs I’m tripping over now inside.
I want to build a solar tracking system that I never got to this year.

And my Great granddaughter will be 1 yr old next year and the toys will be steadily coming out of the shop!!

Cheers, Jim

It’s the same every year…lose some stubborn weight, but there is a bright spot because I FINALLY started to lose some the past 2 weeks. Just need to accelerate it and keep it going into 2019. Oh, and my shop will be in an “optimal” state of organization. I want to start building stuff I want to make instead of shop projects. lol. How about you Cricket?

All fine goals. We are a bunch of “experienced” models here. No sense being above the dirt if you are not still sentient and mobile too. So I am adding those 2 to that list.

All my LJ Buddies might have noticed that I haven’t posted anything in almost 24 months. The reason is that my time has been taken up with designing and now building an addition to my basement so that I’ll have more shop space. Above the addition will be a sunroom to keep the rain off my shop.

I’ve been thinking about adding a blog to document this project. Don’t know if there would be any interest in it.

In 2019 I hope to finish the sunroom above my basement addition and then finish getting my basement addition set up for my additional shop space.

When that’s done we’ll probably take a road trip and spend more time making stuff in the shop Maybe acquire more tools.

Of course staying on the right side of the grass is a must.

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish every LJ a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Well the current plans are to go to Disney in Florida. Wife and kids want that and I’ll probably do a hog hunt while I’m down there. Then this spring I need to build a lean to on the garage and put new siding on it. Then have a contractor put a new metal roof on the house with a wrap around porch. Then I’m hoping to build a big chicken coop this summer and get some chickens again….... if I get all that done I’ll just kick back and play guitar

Better shot at world peace than this happening? At least for my shop anyway.

Stay alive.

Not get ban form LJ’s.

Pray for good health, the economy, the stock market and politicians. Politicians need it the most.

Up my activity in the shop. Since I retired (2years now) I’ve slowed down considerably but I have been on the upswing the last couple months.

I also hope there are no natural disasters or forest fire that damage the Alder forest.


This is a partial list.

I have been missing everyone here for over a year now. I’m hoping to get back in the shop and make some dust.

Get packed up and moving. Havn’t found the right house to move to but we’re looking. Sold my boat and all our friends have moved away save one, so it is time to get out of the Keys while the getting is good. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all you Lumber Jocks out there.

Last Monday morning, I woke up knowing it wasn’t going to be a good day. I had been putting off what needed to be done, knowing it would be beyond painful for me.

10 years ago I rescued this amazing cat, Lemur. The truth is, I didn’t rescue him. He rescued me. Yes, I realize he was “just a cat” but I had come through some really tough times and he became my buddy. He became family. He gave me 10 years of unconditional love. When I knew it was time to give in and allow him to be put to sleep, it devastated me. When his pain was finally over, it left me broken.

That night, the phone call came that my pain was just beginning. I lost the strongest man I ever knew. The man that made me who I am today. My daddy.

I was no longer broken. I was shattered.

Today, I woke up thinking about 2019. I am not usually big on changes, let alone resolutions, but heartbreak makes you take a second look at things. It helps you realize what is and isn’t important. You discover what really matters.

I do have some changes I will be working on in 2019. I tend to be a bit of a workaholic. That isn’t going to change but I am going focus on working smarter without letting my work time consume me, not allowing it to define who I am.

I am going to find ways to spend more time outdoors, doing the things I love most, those things that bring me peace. I am going to focus on LIVING every day.
