Labour Day Weekend 2021

My weekend was a bit of a rollercoaster. I had a blast watching my friend perform on Friday night at SAW Gallery. Her band, Chautauqua, is fantastic. A small group of us followed the concert up with drinks at Avant Garde, which was great because we couldn't socialize much during the concert. 

I felt a little rough the next day, so I took it easy. At one point, I felt like writing, but I couldn't find my notes for the part of the project I'm on right now. Frustrated, I spent time cleaning in my office and eventually remembered where they were. Unfortunately, I was not as far ahead as I thought I was. My notes were more of a list of guidelines and I still have to figure out how to rewrite the section they apply to. At least I know where they are now and I can plug away at it.

On Sunday, I did some errands, laundry, and relaxed with TV and video games. Actually, I got a lot of gaming in all weekend and it's been good for my morale. I've been feeling burned out lately.

Monday was spent gaming, putting shelves up, and relaxing. I'm a little sore today from installing the shelves, but at least they are done.

I did mean to get a little more done this weekend, like go skating, but the weather hasn't been good for it, so indoor activities were my focus instead.

This week, I plan to get some locking tuning knobs for my guitar. A friend offered to help get me set up and we're supposed to jam soon. 

Another friend got Minecraft for her son and I'm looking forward to teaching him what I can.

I'm excited to see what this month has in store!

I swear I had posted this on Monday, but it turns out I didn't finish it. 

Such is life sometimes...

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an
