Cold this morning. 40F or less. It stayed cold all day yesterday and the sun only poked through for a short time in the afternoon. Whatever today ends up being, if it doesn’t rain, I’ll be happy.
Got some small stuff done. Finished weed-wacking my property and the HOA lot. Picked up trash along the shore and the community dock. I hate litter and it doesn’t take long. Put up another flag pole holder. Lot of visible patriotism up here. It’s nice to see.
Helped stand up a 50ft antenna tower and learned a few new things.
Our guests had headed home while I was out, but they had a good time. It was nice to have people here to share with, and nice to see D2 having fun with a friend. If it was just a bit warmer, it would have been even better. Can’t control the weather, I’m not a Bildeburg after all… 😉
Today will be wrapping up everything, getting ready to head home. If I can cut the grass again, I will. Some of it was so long it basically got flattened rather than cut. I don’t want to leave it long for next visit. There are a couple more smaller projects I can get knocked out too if I’m motivated.
I will say that cold HURTS. My fingers, knees, nose, ears, and lower back are always sore in the cold. Still as Kurt Cobain said, the pain lets us know we’re alive. This weekend I was ALIVE.
Stack up some meatspace people and skills. Build relationships while people are still open to them. They won’t be if things get bad, and who you know, and who knows YOU will be very important.
