AM or PM, it’s the magic hour…for painting murals. There’s light without glare, and the temperature is pleasant. You can get at least two or three hours in before it gets either too light or too dark to work…although I’m thinking about moving the spotlight out to work a bit later in the evening.


Current state of the mural

This morning:

This afternoon:

Yes, it’s less. I decided I didn’t like the central mountain, so I erased it. As soon as it cools off this evening, I’m going out to start rebuilding it.

Something weird is going on with WordPress again. It’s posting images just fine but claiming non-existent […]

I love my router!

Actually both of them. But this time, I’m talking wood, not computers.


I have been remiss…

Actually, I’ve been tired! Still am. But I owe you all, so I’m going to post something…mostly pictures with captions.

We’ve begun the mural. I thought Carolyn would have said something, but I guess she’s left it up to me.


Depression is…

Taking the plunge to rip into your laptop without anything resembling a manual, getting it back together with no extraneous parts… and discovering it didn’t change a thing.


This ‘n’ that…

The garage. We found a really pretty base tone. It’s called Pocahontas. Kind of a soft mauve, but a bit browned as well, so it’s not really pink or purple. I think it’ll make a nice base tone for our mural.

The spray painter was an absolute godsend (thank you Carolyn.) We were able to […]

Jury Duty: Day 1

Intrustin’, actually.

I had Carolyn just drop me off, since the courthouse is only a couple of miles from the house. I should have walked, but walking’s too dangerous. Oh, the neighborhood between us and the courthouse isn’t the best, but it’s the walking itself I worry about! The worst sports-related injuries I’ve ever sustained […]

Sometimes a problem is just an excuse…

…for new toys.

My USB woes actually took a fun turn. The usb failure on the mobo took out the USB ports on the front as well as the back. In order to operate, I really need front accessible ports, so I went hunting for options. Boy have USB hubs come a long way in […]

You know you’re getting old…

When you have to wait to decide what hurts most—your head, your joints, or your muscles—to decide what pain meds to take.


We got another load of dirt so we can actually finish the edge of the pond before guests arrive next month, but that means we have to move it. And moving the […]

Adventures in computing continue.

I lost it today. I don’t often do that on the phone, but I got seriously angry at the oh-so-polite, oh-so-lying through his teeth customer non-service guy at Toshiba.
