Work always.

Though, it's a little misleading to just flatly call it work. It is work, sure but it's also relaxation and investment and creation and recreation... So much more than merely work. I know you know...

It's fucking snowing.

*Not* the Polar Vortex--not a competition.

Still my dexterity with the hand tools is dropping faster than the temperature.

:cold:

Too easy to get hurt when it's cold.

When I was wiring the barn in the cold/dark, I bled a fair amount and didn't know it until I came inside...

People who haven't done wiring have no idea how much it tears up your fingers. Thick snipped wire is sharp.

That's true, I think cold stiff muscles contribute to that because they are less bouncy.

So is that little ground wire, and I was surprised how sharp the leading edge of that cold plastic insulation can be. It won't stab you through the heart like copper but don't use any Purell.

Stained the deck today.

I didn't want to change the color of the wood, it's so beautiful just natural. But, I defer to Twil on the aesthetic decision. She wanted gray, the color the untreated cedar would become after years of unprotected exposure to the sun and elements. We found a color she liked in a product I liked and I applied it today. We'll give it at least 24 hours, then I'll take another panorama for you. And posterity.
