Cool and damp, but maybe not raining today. That would be nice. It stayed damp and misty all day yesterday.
So I only did a little bit outdoors. I did break two more slabs of concrete from the front walk and move them to the pile of free concrete rubble. Don’t know for sure, but I think some of the pile might have gone away.
Spent some time chatting with a neighbor 2 houses down, who I don’t see often. And chatted for a bit with my fisherman friend. I even got a few minutes to practice fishing between little jobs. But mostly I was scraping ceilings. [that should be enough sentence fragments for a while… maybe I’ll do a run-on for balance]
My wife found the telescope last night as we were putting away the movie night stuff, unfortunately it’s been cloudy so I didn’t reveal it to her on purpose, since there was nothing to see, but she was surprised. “Now THAT’S a big telescope!” Maybe we’ll get a break tonight and it will clear up. It would be nice to at least look through it this weekend.
There were a few more boats on the lake yesterday and the level is up, so they could use the community launch ramp next door. Otherwise I might not have noticed. I expected more people to come up for the holiday weekend, but it’s anything but “busy”. I’m happy enough with that, we weren’t looking for a busy lake or a lot of people. So far none of the holidays have been particularly busy that I could see. Maybe on the other side of the lake the experience was different. In any case, I’m pleased.
Turkey and leftovers were tasty. Today D2 declared it was the best turkey every, although she prefers the “normal” way I make ribs. Hooray for that. Now to learn about smoking as a preservation technique and not just for flavor.
Maybe I’ll try salting some pork too. Hmm. Always good to learn new skills. Most of my chat with my fisherman friend was about making sausage. Time to start stacking up some more skills…
And in case those skills don’t work out, stack some more food. It’s pretty cheap now, and will likely be very dear later.
