I’m almost done painting the entrance of the house. It’s turned cold. The first snow of the 2020-21 winter happened a few days ago. I was expecting a warm day that never came. Instead, I put a couple of space heaters in the entrance way and brought it up to 12°C since the paint can said minimum 10°C. I still have a bit of trim to paint.
The garage is cold, too, of course, which will make working on any projects with the new CNC a bit slower. It’s so much nicer working in warm weather. I’ve got a ton of firewood cut up and more to be cut but no wood burning stove in the garage – only propane and electric. I have a few projects on the go but no new teardrops yet (teardrop trailers, that is).
Mom bought me a new shirt from Mark’s yesterday, but it was 60% polyester. I hate polyester. It’s like wearing plastic clothes. I smell like a race horse at the end of the day. I took it back and got another. As it turns out, the second one, which is 100% cotton, is actually 70% recycled cotton. This is my first time buying recycled textiles. I wonder how well it will wear.
The COVD-19 count in the city is as high as it’s ever been. I think this is partly due to the Thanksgiving weekend of October 12, 2020, with people insisting that they’re immune to it. “Can’t happen to me.” The latest act of carelessness is at a church in Coaldale, one of seven hot-spots in Alberta. “Not too pretty good,” as Glenn would say.
