At Home

Pictures taken in the places we’ve called ‘home’ over the years.

Ginger’s Glasses – I find them everywhere. I scoop them up from their hiding places and put them somewhere they can be found. She must have 10-20 pairs.

I received a request for a profile pic for my voluntary work, and I don’t like the goofy picture I’m using for my profile at work, so I got out the tripod, set up the camera, and asked Ginger to take some pictures and got both fixed.

Kitchen Table Still Life – I was eating dinner when I noticed the light on these pots that Ginger threw at a pottery class she’s been taking. One-minute read, +1

Milwaukee Fastback 48-22-1990 – I’ve finally got around to replacing the pocket knife I gave to Katie. One-minute read, +1

Sunday cleaning & oiling. Sig Sauer P938 – I’ve been trying to get my hands on a P938 for a long time (over a year). Everywhere I’ve checked they have been out of stock. This is the 9mm version of Katie’s 380 Caliber Sig Sauer P238 handgun. One-minute read, +1

March Hibiscus – we moved our hibiscus plants inside for the winter and they have rewarded us by flowering every now and then.

Bedroom Plants – Same old story, I liked the light.

Utility room shelving unit finally fitted in place – It’s taken a long time to get this shelving unit made and finished, mainly because of problems with the paint. I’m glad it is now installed. However, there’s still more to do in this room before it is finished.

Painting – Time to paint the utility room shelving.

Pantry shelves ready for finishing. With a lot of snow forecast, I needed to get the shelves out of the garage to make room for the car. +2

Well, that didn’t go as planned… As usual, things took a lot longer to do than I anticipated, and I made two annoying mistakes. Two-minute read.

My task for tomorrow … Is to turn this pile of wood into a ‘pantry’ and shelving unit.

Impelling – The view inside the new washer is bright, shiny, and rather sci-fi looking.

And that’s the cabinets fitted – I’ve still got to make a pantry to fill the open space on the left, and another set of shelves on the opposite side of the room too. +1

Cabinets fitted on one side. Now for the cabinets on the opposite wall.

Ginger fitting hinges – currently we are adding some high-level storage for ‘little used’ items.

Boxes – we have some work to do today. The utility room remodel is getting out of hand! We had already dealt with several boxes when I took this picture.

Final coat of stain – Made a lot of difference to the color. Now to varnish it all, add door handles, and it’s finished. +3

Making the gear closet doors – There have been a few upgrades in the workshop. Black Friday Grizzly had a drill press and bandsaw on sale at a price I couldn’t refuse. The pair cost less than the bandsaw normally retails at. The bandsaw came in particularly useful for all the joints I had to make for the gear closet doors. One-minute read, +1

Gary in the workshop – Hindsight being the gem that it is, I now know it was a huge mistake to make the doors and not get them ‘off the shelf.’ +3
