New Years Resolutions

It’s that time, in fact it’s a little past when this blog usually posts new years resolutions.  Here’s a quick recap of last year and how I believe things went: 1.  Lower caffeine levels:  A, my goal was to go down to two cups of coffee per day and that is what I did.  The effect […]

The Rain Fall

Let it be known that 2018 has been an insufferably rainy fall.  It’s just kept on and on the last month and a half.  I’d like to get the leaves cleaned up, but it’s been so wet that finding a pocket of time to do so has been challenging.  Same goes for winterizing everything; difficult […]

Garage Insulation + End of Summer

Dog days of summer came, lay on the floor for a bit, and are slowly getting up and out the door. The cooler weather has begun to grace our presence, and it’s an excellent time of year.  With that cool weather comes the ability to do a few house projects, this year now that the […]

Long Time No Post

It’s been a long time since posting, which is pretty sad given that there’s been so much going on.  It’s also pretty understandable given that, so perhaps that balances out. As a brief run down–Juniper is three and hilarious.  She’s also really smart, and sweet, and terrible.  She has enjoyed planting her own flowers with […]

February Cold Snap

Winter of 2018 has been a pretty cold one.  It’s had ups and downs, but the last few weeks have been pretty frigid.  I just picked up a small cold and the flu has been making it’s rounds all over.  January is generally the toughest part of the year in Minny due to the cold […]

Gearing Up For Winter

It’s that time of year, the first snow has fallen.  This first part of winter is actually really enjoyable on multiple fronts.  The holidays are right around the corner, which usually means gathering with family members and taking a little time off from work.  I’m certainly planning on both as my workload has been on […]

The Big Short – Review and Thoughts

I don’t get out to movies often.  Growing up it is something to do in order to get out of the house, as an adult we become much more sensitive to mandated proximity to other humans, queue management, costs and the like, as such many of my adult friends and adults I’ve known for longer […]

Shed Rebuild

About a month back I started rebuilding my shed.  The main reason is that the door was right next to the house.  Over the years the door had become blocked by the cement next to the house, it still opened but not at a 90 degree angle, which makes for a pain to actually open. […]

Project Work Continues

Still keeping very busy on weekends, this week reorganizing the garage. First up was building a new work bench. The previous owners (probably the owners before the previous owners) took out old cabinetry from the kitchen and used it in the garage as shelving, which was clunky. I tore it all out last weekend and […]

Flooring Project Finished

Well, it was about 5 months in the making.  But we finally redid the flooring upstairs.  And by “we” I mean we paid for it. Unique Flooring here in Bloomington handled the project, who subcontracted Josh’s Hardwood Flooring.  If you’re looking for a great company to work with, I’d recommend both.  Winston at Unique is […]
