Leaving the old week behind.

Sunday. The first day of a new week.

Hopefully, the beginning of a better week than the last 2.

You know what I did today? Have you ever heard of a "Three Hour Tour"? Yea?

How about a 3 hour snore? Lol...

Yea, I took a 3 hour nap today. Been sleeping and taking naps all week.

After my 3 hour snore, for the first time in 2 weeks, I didn't feel like that stuff on my undercarriage, that I use a bidet to wash off! Lol.

Wouldn't say I felt anywhere near normal, but a whole lot better than I have been all week. I think I'll actually get some work done this week. Wahoo!!


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Good judgement comes from experience.
A lot of experience, comes from bad judgement.

Wahoo! Finally got outside today! Feeling much better than I have for over 2 weeks.

I even stepped inside the motor home today for a minute. Did nothing, but I was there. Lol.

Looking better for getting some work done this week.

Hopefully, I'll get there tomorrow or Thursday. Can't wait!

So what's next on the agenda? Cabinets? Countertop?

Next? Health? Sure hope so!


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

I'm going to continue with counter tops. I've gotten the black walnut out and sitting there, and my next step is to start some planing of that, and get it down to size so it's usable for the counters.

Since it's going over top of 1/2" plywood, it won't need to be too thick, as I want to keep the weight down a little bit.

I love the looks of 2" thick live edge counters, but these won't be that thick.

On a good day, however, perhaps I can fool the eye and make it look like it is much thicker than it actually is.

For those with too much time on their hands, and/or too many colored pencils laying around, and an abundance of epoxy.....

Needed to go pick up a few groceries today. While we were out, I stopped in at the local Lowes store.

After hunting for a while, and finally asking for help ... (gasp, a man asking for help/directions)? Yes.

I eventually found the item I was looking for.

I was looking for some cedar wood. I found that Lowes had boards that they typically use for cedar fencing.

This stuff is 5/8" thick, 5 1/2" wide, and 6' long.

Brought a bunch home in the PT Cruiser. Yay, PT! Lol.

Stood a few of them up against the bath wall, just because I could. Not really planning on using them for the door. Just wanted to see what they would look like standing there.

Here is what they look like close up. As you can see, they are not planed, or as the correct term is - surfaced.
