Another trip to Ohio

I went to Ohio for work again today. Just another delivery, nothing out of the ordinary. I found a Chipotle in Richmond so at least I have a good reason to get done early so I can stop there on my way back now. Man I’d missed those carnitas bowls. $1.80 for guac is a bit much though.

After I got back to work, I didn’t have much going on so I went home to mow the yard. Man that was a mess, I haven’t mowed in like 10 days, it was half way up my calf in a few places!

Erin and I are working on finding ways to replace wheat flour in our eating lately. She’s been a little funny with wheat lately, not a gluten weirdo yet, but not “normal” either. Tonight we tried rice flour and corn meal on some fried cubed steak. I think the rice flour was pretty tasteless honestly, the corn meal though left a nice crust. I think we’ll do both again sometime.

We got some groceries tonight and now we’re just chilling in front of the TV. Life is good today.

I rebuilt the shed today

Rebuilt the shed today So there it is, the rebuilt shed. It started yesterday, got off work a bit early and starting tearing off the sides. Essentially we took both ends off, cut part of the sides off and then put it all back on with new wood.

It took another 9 hours to finish the trim and stuff today but it’s done now. It’s painted now, just simple white, and it still needs one more coat though, new wood just keeps soaking it up.

I’m happy with it, it definitely made the yard look better than it did a few days ago.

Big day tomorrow with friends, food, and fireworks.

Work is done, relaxing has begun!

Got off work early enough today to get a ton of stuff done outside The Green. The gutters are cleaned, the yard is free of leaves and all is well with the world I think.

We had chili and I tried livening it up a bit with some beef chuck roast instead of just the usual hamburger, I think it came out pretty good really.

Tonight we’re just chillin’ and watching some movies, tomorrow its off to the Fort Wayne Komets game and who knows what else.

Peace, it makes life worth living again.

Sanding…

I sanded at work today. All day. Nothing but running a palm sander to catch up on a big project that’s gotta be ready for Monday. Some window sill thing that’s going into a school. I think from time to time about the stuff that I do and how long it will last.

When I make a kitchen I think that it could be around for 10 years or so, most people probably change their countertops more than that. Things that we do for institutions though probably last a lot longer, maybe 20 years. So when I think that when I’m nearly 50 some of this stuff could still be around I’m totally amazed by it. Think of all the children that will pass by my work every day and for all those years, most won’t notice anything about it probably, but still I find it amazing how long it will be there and how many could see it.

I think tomorrow I’m going to be outta work early enough to get some work done around The Green, maybe the leaves in the yard and the gutters, borrowing a ladder and leaf blower in hopes of getting it all taken care of, chili night tomorrow too, kinda excited.
