Nearly there

After several years, the hubbinator and I finally decided on a tile for our kitchen backsplash. As much as I wanted color, we just couldn’t find one that worked.

So we decided to play it safe and go with white. Just didn’t want the ubiquitous subway tile that he hates.

So we narrowed it down to two choices and opted for a plain one as the design in the other might be too busy.

Now, all we have to do is removed the protective covering from the hood and change out the receptacles and cover plates

Until next time, stay healthy.

Superstition

I’ll admit I have a few that I carry with me. Some that continue to surprise me with the lack of logic but they dogmatically return.

I have started and abandoned 5 books in the last few years. I think I only stopped writing 1 book for the entire 20 years before.

So at the risk of jinxing myself, I will let you know that I am nearly 1/4 of the way through my current project. It’s part scifi novel, part ghost story. And I am enjoying it.

Now, I have to do the hard work and finish it.

Until next time, stay healthy.

Sounds like rain

But it isn’t. I got excited for a moment until I realized that that sounds was the pitter-patter of tiny beads raining down on the floor.

You see the necklace I had worked on for days had given way. I tied the threads off and, well, it wasn’t pretty.

Or a nice way to end my vacation.

Ah well, I will finish it up this coming weekend, making the length a little longer, stronger and maybe bionic.

Until next time, stay healthy.

Easter Greetings

This last weekend I was able to sit down and get some cards made. Mistakes happened but I learned a few new things and am happy with how the cards turned out.

Alas, not all the cards arrived in time, but I hope they will get there soon.

Until next time, stay healthy.

To do list

I took a week off work and made a list of things I should do while I was off.

It took a few days to tear up the list.

The whole purpose of time off is to relax and not be consumed by the need to produce something.

Instead, I need to relax and reset, recharge as it were and enjoy the company of the hubbinator. Everything will be there tomorrow, and if it isn’t maybe it wasn’t important.

Until next time, stay healthy.

One thing leads to another

I am currently reading 6 Degrees. The culmination of climate modeling from early in this century. Not all the predictions have occurred. Modeling does have it’s limits, usually based on information and the fact that the planet is extremely complex.

The apocalyptic author in me loves everything about the book. (no judgment please).

But what I find really fascinating is the evidence from paleoclimatology. Imagine the Great Plains as a giant sand box. Imagine the Sahara as a forest and savannah. Imagine a 600 year drought. Fascinating. And despite the dangers of going down a rabbit hole, I am now looking for books on the topic.

Any suggestions?

Until next time, stay healthy.
