Just got done booking a couple shows for our upcoming trip. Vegas, baby! We'll be there following a niece's graduation in Utah. I've never been there. Got tickets to Absynthe (a sort of Cirque du Soleil circus burlesque) and to Penn and Teller. I wanted to wait until we got there, as deals would be found, but DH was insistant that I book ahead of time.

I am also up early because my cough is back and I don't want to keep TB awake. I coughed so bad yesterday I aggravated my sciatica so am dealing with that too. It was sure nice having a few weeks pain free. But at least I know I can do it!

I took TB to the doctor (he has the flu, but needed a doctor's note because 11 drivers called in sick today). After dropping him off I went to Costco and got the rest of my shopping done.

Now I am unpacked and taking a break before I start working on my project of the day - finding one form I need to complete Dad's last income tax. I am combining it with tidying up my craft room.

Sitting down to a cup of hot chocolate before I start moving furniture and cleaning. The baseboards went down early in the house finishing phase. The flooring went down late in the process. Due to the nature of laying engineered wood flooring on top of poured concrete; there are uneven crevices between the floor and baseboards. The flooring person is coming tomorrow morning to caulk those joints. Unfortunately a lot of furniture is obscuring those crevices. Fortunately Fedex delivered a bottle of hard to find Navan today. Things always seem to work out, don't they?

You nailed it. It's very tedious. There are times you need to take a break, but when you do you end up changing the angle you've been trying to maintain when you start back up. Breaking the angle is one step, but trying to maintain a flat surface is another. It probably took me 3 hours/side. But it's close. Like sharpening a chef's knife
Of course if I had a "cheap" $1200 mill I could have had it done in 30 minutes and not have had to deal with file marks, but that's all part of the project

Anyway... I'm kicking around if I want to move 2 ft drifts of heavy snow out of my driveway tonight and have a smaller amount to deal with tomorrow, which would be like doing it twice in a way... plus it's 23 now. It will be single digits tomorrow morning... hmmm... plus it's windier than heck... from the wrong direction... I may need to deliberate this over a few beers...

I am watching Monkey play with her new toy. Quite simply it is a battery operated (safe) laser beam that moves around at various speeds and directions and she chases after it. It's on a timer and when it stops she continues to search for it. I am going to have to get a video of this.

It sure helps tire her out which is a relief to TB, Violet and I.

I have one of those for the cats, too. They look at it and then wander off. It's rare I can get them to chase the red dot.
