I did. Got a couple of good arm stretches in on my right shoulder, over my head. Listened to some music as well.

My friend's dad came over late in the afternoon yesterday and we got the last of the jambs up before casing both doors and one of the windows. At this point I could do the rest on my own but I'm happy that he's coming back on Thursday because doing trim is much easier with 4 hands instead of 2.

We were going to be short one painted casing because one of the ones that I had painted was warped and we used that for the tops of the doors. That's okay. I did an inventory of what I had unpainted in my basement and it turns out I have 5 extra pieces for what I need to finish in the porch and on the 1st floor, leaving me some extra if I decide I want to put the wide trim on the inside of the bathroom door even though I can't put the wide trim on the window in there because it's so close to the shower.


Rather than just paint one casing, I brought out 9 more of the 7'6" casings, all three of the 10' casings I have plans for on the 1st floor, the last 12' piece of baseboard and 3 pieces of quarter round trim and painted the 1st coat on all of them. In about an hour or two I'll put the finish coat on them. That's a huge head start on the 1st floor work I want to get done this winter. That's exactly the amount I need right now, but I had no more space to paint any more casings. I do have the 5 backups that I'd need to paint if any mistakes are made, but that's fine.



I just spray foam insulated the final window now. I'll cut out the excess and insulate what I couldn't with the foam tomorrow and probably install all of the baseboard. I have a particular way that I do it that is rather time consuming and my friend's dad wouldn't have the patience for it. But with proper coping saw cuts and 22.5 degree scarf joints it's going to look like all of those pieces of wood grew like that when I'm done.

My brain got a little mixed up this afternoon. Looked at an appointment slip and thought the person who wrote did it wrong. Then when I turned on my computer and looked at the date suddenly realized that the appointment is right. Just my brain had a glitch in it. *sigh* I hate that.

Got the final coat on everything I had out there and I'm calling it a day.

Tomorrow I'm just going to throw the remaining 5 casings into the mix and get all of my inventory painted to be done with it.

I'd like the baseboard installed in between as well as finish the insulation on the small window.

I might also paint the inside of the porch door we installed last fall. I don't have any exterior paint though, so because I don't have a car that's probably going to have to wait another winter. It held up just fine last year. No big deal.

That happens to me all the time. I tell everyone I'm a scheduling dyslexic. I try, I really do, to stay organized. I make lists, and I have a diary and we have a family calendar AND a white board where people put up whatever they think we're running short of, whether it's meds or supplies or food.

And I STILL manage to double up appointments on some days, and forget to get what I'm supposed to get

Sigh

Bad memory and bad scheduling. I'm also really bad at visualizing

No. At least not yet.

It went to the mechanic that gets around to working on your car whenever he feels like getting to it. Add to that he's going to have to fabricate some stuff and do a custom job here, I don't imagine this is going to be a quick fix. As long as it took him last time to do the brake lines, he didn't charge me his normal shop rates. We ended the last thing on good terms and maybe if I'm not an asshole to him this time around I might get a good deal on this... assuming he is able to fix it.

I'm relatively stocked up this time now, and with my neighbor asking me for favors I'll be able to cash in on some rides when I need them after their remodel is finished and they're not living like gypsies out of other people's houses. Depending on how tomorrow goes I might see if he can run me up to the store to get some external paint since he's already carting me a couple of places on Thursday morning, but with the clock ticking on the nice weather we've been blessed with, I don't know if I'd have time to get to it anyhow.

I was hoping to put this off until January when absolutely nothing is going on. Because right now if my friend wants help on the weekend he has to come and pick me up again. And I'm not going to be able to finish the work my aunt wanted done by the end of November unless she comes out and picks me up.

I'm usually pretty good at scheduling myself for appointments. I get an appointment slip written for me and then I put that on the fridge in good sight range, then sometimes I will write it down as well in a note book I keep in my back pack.

But still my brain can look at something that if very straight forward and decide it is wrong. Takes a bit to get it back on track. Now, I just hope it stays on track. *L*

My memory was wonderful when I was younger anything my mom needed to know and I could usually recall it. Though that was before the brain tumour and surgery to remove said. It was a while after that that I started noticing differences. Then when looking after my mom through cancer surgery and chemo treatments the first time, I developed a system. I would stack all appointments on the kitchen table then as they were covered, I would remove them and put the paper into recycling. So in a lot of ways I have just continued on with it.

Well I've been telling people since it came out that they need to watch Utopia. Glad you finally found it because as far as I know nobody else watched it.

Unfortunately, it did not get a 2nd season. It kind of blows my mind that they even released the 1st season when they did, right at the beginning of the Plandemic.

It's still worth watching to the end even though you're going to be left as empty as you were when watching Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

There is a UK version of the show that came out first. I've never looked into it to see if they actually finished that show or not.


You're right about the gore though. My old man told me I should watch it and after maybe just the first or second episode I told him that I might not finish it. He told me that he thought the same thing, but that he stuck with it and that I should too. He was right. But that was all before the lockdowns started happening and I knew that there was no chance they were going to tell any more of that particular story.

They blame the cancellation on low viewership, but if you watch it all you'll know why that's bullshit.

That was the one with the multiple time loops, wasn't it? That one left me mostly confused. I lost track of who was from what time loop.

But that was all before the lockdowns started happening and I knew that there was no chance they were going to tell any more of that particular story.

There were two (three, actually) predictive points to the story. Four, depending on how conspiracy-minded you are.

The first is the nature of the virus itself. The virus that's in the drop of rain in the frame with the little girl with the T-shaped rash on her face? The spherical virus with the spikes sticking out of it? That's a corona virus. A lot of viruses have distinctive shapes, and that's one of them. (Ebola is another one. It's rod-shaped with a curl, crook, or loop on one end, kind of like a shepherd's crook.)

The second is the bat as the ostensible source of the virus.

The third is that the virus was deliberately manufactured.

The fourth is the evil pharma genius who spreads a virus in order to promote a vaccine, sidestepping the FDA in order to get an EUA. (I don't know what's with the vaccine yet, but it's not looking good.)

A fifth, I suppose, is more descriptive thn predictive, but it's USA's (and China's) continuation of biowarfare research.

I was just as surprised watching it as I was re-watching "The Lone Gunmen" (an X-Files spinoff.) Their VERY FIRST episode was about a USA government plot to get terrorists to fly a commercial passenger jet into one of the twin towers. Aired BEFORE 9-11.

Anyway, all of this got me to thinking how "Contagion" primed people to accept lockdowns.

We got some early rain last night. It was unpredicted so I didn't set out my "rain gage" and don't know how much it was. When I start weeding I'll be able to see how far it penetrated the soil.

Seems like we both made it thru the fire season in one piece.

Suppose to rain in my area tomorrow and through Friday and the weekend. Have to see.

We did. But areas of my province are still dry. There was a brush fire in a little place called Oliver in the Interior on Halloween. Stupid people setting off fireworks. The fire department there got it out before it got out of hand, thank goodness.

My mom's hometown of Cranbrook and other areas close to the Rockies are seeing some snow today. That snow will probably cross the Rockies into Southern Alberta to places like Lethbridge, Calgary.

2 coats of paint on all trim, casings and baseboard. 2 coats of paint on the interior of the new metal porch door we installed last fall.

Small window insulated.

Everything else needed for porch staged in garage, the rest is staged in the basement.

I also installed all of the baseboard in the porch before wrapping up for the night.

Now all I need help with from my friend's dad tomorrow is casing out the 3 remaining windows.



Gotta get to bed at a reasonable hour today. I've obligated myself to help my neighbor move furniture again but didn't know until a few hours ago that it starts at 8AM. I didn't even wake up today until 9AM.

It's probably more manic than motivated. You know that I'm prone to falling into a state where I'm getting nothing done for weeks or even months on end.

The warm weather surely helps. I don't function well when it's colder than 60 degrees, so I've got to take the gift that I've been given. It gets cold next week, probably until March or April. Two winters ago I managed to work nearly every day on my kitchen despite the terrible cold weather that year, but then last year was a lot more mild and there were about 3 months there I didn't do anything but watch YouTube and play video games.

Getting a huge backlog of to-do on the DONE list is a great motivator though too. When I first started working on my house again it all seemed so insurmountable. But now that I'm a few years into it and I've been able to cash in some of my favors to get things done I couldn't on my own it's really all coming together.

I'm not sure how far you've gotten into it, but if you haven't figured out why season 2 wasn't made, from what you've posted below I think you can probably guess.

I don't remember. All I remember was that I was warned by my brother ahead of time not to watch it and I didn't listen to him. It was the worst cliffhanger ending to a show I've ever seen. It was the one that was starring Summer Glau.

It's been a long time now since I've seen it. I forget most of what happened now except for most of the first episode, the overall vaccination story, "What have you done today to earn your place in this crowded world?*, and the River-esque character standing while taking a pee and pointing the gun at them.

*That was my signature here at one point, but Brenda asked me to change it because it made her feel lousy whenever she read it.

I watched all of The Lone Gunmen with my uncle back when I lived at my Grandmas. I'm very familiar with that 9/11 thing. There's been quite a few YouTube videos about it.

Yeah. But the first few episodes were a HARD watch. I gave that warning when I was recommending people here watch it. When the blonde girl was killed was when I told my Dad that I was probably done with the show. She was really the only person that I liked and cared about up to that point.

No time to debate with the two knuckleheads this morning. Got to get into furniture moving mode.

The insulation I needed for the attic went on sale yesterday. Something like $13.50 per bat after rebate.

It's still more than I intend to pay, but it's about $11 off per piece at Biden* prices. Since there is no limit on the time that you have to return it I'm going to buy them and just hold them for now. If they do go on sale at a steep discount on Black Friday again or at some point in the winter, I can just return them and go right back to the register and buy them at the cheaper price.

I finished the Utopia series, at least as far as it got.

Im gonna throw in my guess how the second season might go:

Enyo/Homeland Security/Home was taking Dr Christie's idea in a whole new direct: creating multiple viruses that would control people behavior, eliminating greed, anger etc

The marks on Jessica's back were from the various viruses that she is host to

Dr Michael has the mother egg for the sterilization virus. I think he wants to create a vaccine for THAT.

Dr Christie's character was saved from death for a role in season 2: There was a meeting if the minds between him and Mason, and he will become their ally in the fight against Enyo.

Given how the series tends to bump off major characters, not sure what's going to happen to Grant, but I think the major bloodletting is done so I think he'll survive.

Arby/John's role is ambiguous. I'd love to know what they would have done with it.

Back from mah jong and my walk in the rain. It arrived around lunch time. Got first place today with just over 3,000 points.

Stopped at my local library and put a hold on second season of "Miss Scarelet and the Duke", "The Northman" and the first 2 disks to season 1 of "The Brokenwood Mysteries". That is a series from New Zealand. Cop show and it looks interesting from what I can see. Started it last night. Took "Morbuis" back to the library and had no idea Matt Smith from Dr. Who was in it.

Also got some grocery shopping done meaning supper and some ice cream that was still on sale.

All the porch trim is up. I don't have the crown yet, but I'll either get it from somebody else or wait for a sale/clearance. Not paying Biden* prices for specialty wood like that right now.

My buddy came by and dropped off a big tub of spackle he used for his own bathroom DIY project, so there's another $12 saved there. I'm going to spackle tomorrow and maybe start trimming out stuff in my living room while that's drying.

Yeah... well my mom and my brother are both Bi-Polar. I had an uncle who was OCD really bad and it appears that my youngest brother, despite being "treated" for it at a much earlier age is also going to struggle with it really hard in adulthood.

I'm sure I'm somewhere in that mix myself. The hoarding. The ups and downs in productivity. The addiction tenancies. The ability to eat the same thing every day. The impossible standards I put on other people after I've put them on myself. The quickness to anger.

Fortunately the worst of my addictions are behind me, as well as the hoarding tenancies. I still have a hoard, but it's a digital hoard and for the most part it's extremely well organized and backed up. That is why I have to stay away from "modern" video games made after the early 2000's because I can play a game from the Fallout series and pick up every dented tin can I find and have a locker back home for all of them.

Part of the reason I've chosen the lifestyle that I have is to cope with my deficiencies and not burden anybody else with them. When I'm on point, I'm on point, but I can fall off that horse and have a real hard time getting back up on it.

I'm confident that whoever said "strike while the iron is hot" was Bi-Polar/OCD.

You'll get 'em. Just got to start with one and try to keep on it. Small things are good. They're quick to put on your DONE list and usually part of something larger on your list.

A willingness to be able to bounce around from thing to thing will help you too. I haven't been as hyper focused on one issue this year and that resulted in getting a lot more done before winter than I would have if I refused to work on something else while I was already doing something.

Thanks for the pep talk, SIX.
Unlike you, I work better in cold weather. I was never a big fan of summer to begin with, since our bedrooms were stiflimg and too hot to sleep well.

The weather really changed around here. Some nights have gotten to the low 60s and we had early rain, so its been an unusually cool wet fall. Not turned on the heat, yet, but I put extra blankets/ comforters on the beds and am making soups and stews ... no more salad!

Anyway, like I said, thanks for the pep talk. Im gonna get going now!

Back from my walk and it was awful going out but better coming back.

I actually baked off the last six of the mini pre-made tart shells that were in the freezer and now an apple is cooking in a pot on the stove with some water and sugar. Home made apple sauce for the shells.

No worries.

Some solidarity here too... I got about 45 minutes into working on spackle after filing down a few miters and tapping a few brad nails that weren't sunk all the way in and I just didn't feel it. It's our last 70 degree day, but it's muggy and nothing but dark clouds as far as the eye could see. So I took a nap.

At least one of my friends stopped by. I've been holding on to a bunch of scrap metal and even though I couldn't hold on to the old shed door anymore he got the rest of it out of my garage for me.


I dunno. I might be done working on the porch this year. I'm happy with the progress. I might move on to putting up trim in the living room and kitchen while I've got all the tools out and my garage isn't filled up with my car while we still have about a week worth of nice days left.

Out for my walk in a bit in the sunshine. The rain has stopped for now. Lots of areas were worried about flooding last night. Hope it didn't happen.

The wind also hit and my building had a slight power outage. Good thing there is a generator in here as it never went completely out. Light in the kitchen flickered and the HD box on the tv went out for a minute but luckily nothing disasterous.

Sure is. I like it when something unexpected happens even when the expected doesn't.

I spent a few hours helping set up the neighbor's bedroom sets now that the remodel is done and they got the new rugs to go over the flooring. I was able to get the bulk of it done before I had to leave. My aunt and grandma came by finally for the first time since March and they got to see everything that's been done. They raved about the new porch. I told them I'd have a flooring in and some furniture and we'll be able to hang out in there next spring.



It's windy as hell today. The wind is still blowing the right direction so it's blowing everyone else's leaves away from my house instead of right on my doorstep like last year. It also blew off about 90% of my own leaves, so I guess I won't have to blow leaves tomorrow.

Pretty late to start anything right now. I think I'm relaxing the rest of the day.

I decided to primer that bamboo entryway table. Boy... That's a tricky paint job.

Primer is very forgiving. The high-gloss paint will not be. I may need to think about a smaller brush and doing both coats in stages.

I prolly would have gone with an oil based spray paint myself, but I know it's very expensive. If anyone can make it work, I know you can.

Yeah... I actually have some on hand. I didn't want to risk that it's not going to match all of my trim and the mirror that I painted that will be above it.


I actually hadn't finished primering it and didn't know if I would when I wrote the message, but I went back and after another hour it was finished. I'll probably be putting at least another 8 hours into that thing.

But it looks great so far. Got it cleaned up real good and now it's all one color.

I think there are some spots that I'm going to caulk before I paint though. Overall, whoever made it did a good job given the materials, but now that it's more or less a solid white, there are some things that aren't put together as well as I'd like them to be and a little caulk should make those black lines and shadows disappear.



I will show pictures of this when it's done. I still haven't forgotten about getting some other pictures together of some of the other projects I worked on this summer.

Yeah. I posted that it was the first time that the US government did anything that we can all agree on, but it looks like they screwed that up like they always screw everything up.

Your province should just go ahead and do it. This is just one of a million examples of how US has too much indirect control over the ebb and flow of the world. It's like when I argue with people here about how WE caused the world to be stuck in such a high inflationary recession right now with the policies that WE enacted. WE did that. But the other countries themselves are also to blame because where the US lead they all followed.

I don't mind forgetting about it. There have been times I've gone weeks without even realizing the clocks should have been changed.

What I hate is the darkness before 5PM. The days are already short enough as it is.
