More Today Than Yesterday

Well, the second lift is completely done and I'm inching my way up this side. Since it's getting dark so quickly now I really need to get my butt in a higher gear and get to work earlier. However, some mornings lately it's been pretty cold and frosty on that ladder and pickboard so I've been a little lazy. I'm about out of siding also, so I think next week I'll have to buy another load.
I've worked on the stained glass window some more also. If it rains much this weekend I think I'll try to do even more. It won't take a huge amount of time to finish so I've got to get going on that too. Ugh! So much to do, I just don't need to think about it all. Just one thing at a time.

I know the blog hasn't been very interesting or exciting lately. I've just been kinda blah and not getting out much. I have had a kinda weird rash of calls lately from people I haven't heard of in a loooong time. Funny how stuff like that happens all at once sometimes. Cat Daddy stopped by out of the blue last Sunday morning. I was very surprised to see him; I didn't think he was coming home much. He wanted me to help him straighten out his 401K distribution. So we did that and talked a little. It was the first time I had seen him in a few months I guess.
One of my good work buddies called early one morning. He had heard I was back at work and felt bad when he realized he woke me up but I was glad to hear from him. I hadn't talked to him in about 6 months or so. Then, a girl I went to college with called one night. I hadn't talked to her in a couple of years and was kinda embarrassed that I didn't recognize here voice, but hey, it had been forever since we talked last. She seemed kinda miffed but I couldn't help it.

Oh, while I was working at our office, I found out that the Big House that I worked on a couple of years ago has recently won a construction award in the restoration category and the RR job I was on won for Heavy Industrial Construction. I was proud but I didn't think that job was that heavy of industrial work. But who cares! We won!

I wish I had something funny or exciting to write about but things are kinda ho-hum right now. Maybe that's a good thing. I do have some stuff to write about if I can get my thoughts together enough in the next little while.
I can't believe how fast this year is winding down. Sometimes I feel life is just slipping away and picking up speed every second. Well, hope to have some fun this weekend and hope you all have a good one too.

Life is slipping away and picking up speed. I kinda noticed the same thing myself, must be something to do with building a house on your own and trying to get things done.

Hey hermit! I think it has A LOT to do with that and it makes me kinda unhappy at times but I gotta get it done. But you know, you want to have a life at the same time too.

The awards get you bragging points for other jobs, so accept and be suitably humble (hah). If she's miffed, just tell her you have a man in the Live Trap and need to take care of "business", she'll understand you're distracted. (hah).
Enjoy the life you have and the work associated with it, how many people can say they built their own home now-a-days? Be proud!!

Looks good Annie.

Congrats on your team's awards!
The busier you are the faster time seems to fly, at least to me.

That's fine at work, but not when I'm out having fun.

Hey ER, that house is looking great! Some quiet time is good for the soul, allows us to recharge the batteries, smell the roses and contemplate:)
