Well, today was my first day of vacation!! And I basically pissed around all day, lol! Well, I had some errands to run in town and such and just took some time to go to a couple of stores and look around. Had to take care of some household chores too. But tomorrow, it's down to business! Now, ya'll are going to have to put the whip to my back if I start lolligagging any.
I spoke to our personnel director this morning and basically have no idea how long I'll be off. It could be two months or they could call me back next week. I have a feeling it will be awhile though. But, at any rate, I've got to make the most of this time and keep the attitude that it's not going to last long.
So, my to do list includes:
Finish the rock wall and steps
Grade parking area and apply gravel fill
Finish siding and exterior trim on house
Completely, absolutely finish painting house
Install porch light fixtures (yeah, I know, wth? that's not already done?)
Clean deck and rebar handrails and apply fresh sealer
Build garden/ tool shed
Plow garden under and till in fresh compost
Build decorative gates for garden
Build small shed for firewood
Fill bare spots in lawn and reseed
Build fire ring and benches
Install two sculptures I already have built
Build two more sculptures I have in my head
Oh, finish stained glass window for bath, duh!
Transplant native flowers and shrubs to area above new wall
Clean and organize basement after I lay block knee wall against dirt bank there
60 million other things
I was informed that Lika was getting too much web time and Grendal was getting left out and she agreed to pose for a few shots. She's gotten pretty good about that lately. She is doing well and I finally found a flea medicine that works and doesn't make all her hair fall out.
Don't ya'll worry, I intend to have some fun while I'm off work too! My spirits are up these days so I'm eager to work and cut loose a little too. Perhaps I'll go visit Cat Daddy if he can't come home. I'm sure we can find something to get into; I haven't been in a bar fight in some time now...
