Thursday Notes

    Save for a few minor storms, I sail upon steady waters.  My last post was about 4 months ago, and since then, the skies have remained clear, weather balmy, and water crystal blue. 
    One nice bit of progress for us is our basement!  It's been close to a month, and the framing is almost complete.  Mike is so clever; what work he isn't familiar with he trades with a friend for work is does know about... building motorcycles.  So Mike has built a motorcycle in trade for a friend's framing skills, and now the basement is almost ready for electrical work.   I will take a few snapshots to show the progress. 
    My contribution?  Hmmmm..... so far not too much.  I am the window cleaner and general tidy-upper and I will eventually be promoted to painter.  Which is OK, since it will be nice to add color to my walls!

Its Easter, its Spring, its when I am more ambitious about my goals.  I can't remember ever setting a goal at New Year's.  Its cold, and I am not so interested in bettering myself.  But today is 63 degrees and it gets my hopes up.  So here goes....
Goal #1 - Use my treadmill for at least 30 minutes a day
Goal #2 - Write more short stories (my mind races, yet my pen does not)
Goal #3 - Teach Arthur I am not a jungle gym (bad kitten)

I think this is good for now, baby steps!

Happy Easter!
