Hope to finish our pantry today, removing some small shelves to make room for the microwave, + disinfecting where a mouse apparently was trying to homestead.

Also will finish shopping today, and ready for Friday.

Finishing up restoring a cast iron waffle iron. I hate doing waffle irons. So many crevices!

I am trying to learn the guitar solo for Thunderstruck. It's only 15 seconds, but only the first 5 seconds of tabs are correct and I have been having to fill in the gaps.
I got a Digitech Whammy for the sole purpose of playing the solo from Invincible by Muse. Alas, I cannot move my left hand fingers that fast and do all the other necessary switching.

Fortunately the pedal also serves as a pretty nice chorus pedal. I like a deep chorus with little to no rotation.

Some railing on a doll house that has to be ready by Christmas.

We had central air and heat installed a few weeks back. The heating unit was placed in the hallway in front of a closet. It's just been sitting out there like an eyesore. So, I finally got the wall framed up and the fake shiplap stuff my wife wanted installed. All of it still needs to be painted, but I'm leaving that to my wife. Now, apparently, I have to shiplap the entire hallway to match. Eventually I will wall off the original hallway closet and then cut a door out for it on the other side in my my daughter's bedroom as she and her middle sister share a room with one small closet.

After:

Finally finished my retaining wall...

*By "finished" I mean that the main/essential part is done. I still need to finish back-filling and I'd like to add one more 9' length section to the short end at some point.

Nicely done!

Do yourself a favor (sometime before hot weather) and install a small trap in the drain line from your air conditioning coil.

That's the heat unit. Are you talking about the outside AC condenser?

Nope. The PVC drain just above the furnace, and just below the copper lines on the left side.
It comes from the indoor half of the air conditioning system.
Unless it is already trapped underneath the floor. In which case, disregard.

Either way, nice job on the new door and ship lap. I bet it will look really cool with the whole wall done to match.

Traded out a day at work for my wife’s birthday.
Changed out the 10+ year old battery in my BMW motorcycle. Image
It finally died.
The 25 year old rubber hold down broke as well. None of this was COVID related.

Strangely enough, she’s happy about all the minor repairs around the house and vehicles since our travel is reduced by pandemic.

Finishing up cleaning out the shed. The ground is finally hard enough to get in the yard so I got the last piles of debris cleaned up from the last couple trees I took down. I tried to pull some cinder blocks out of a flower bed. I managed to get four. The other eight are frozen in pretty firm. Need a digging iron...

The Gravely is torn down. It'll be a couple months before it is pressed into service so I figured I might as well paint it up nice. In the downtime. Pressure washing on a 30 degree day isn't fun. The data plate seems to be gone so the date of manufacturer will be tough to determine. It is the 8 HP Super Convertible. That much I know. Image

Only took me a few years, but I finally got the transition between the kitchen and living room finished.
