I’ll keep it short, just to get a journal entry in…
Work has been insane busy. This is a good thing in the consulting business, especially following a slow stretch. Busy bidding work, designing projects, and dealing with staff changes. Fun times though. The work is interesting and challenging, and I have a great office downtown.
We have made a lot of progress on fixing the house; more so outside than inside, but we have to take advantage of the sunny days.
Kelly got the exterior painted, which was a two week project with lots of construction repairs and decisions to make.
Tate and I built the fence along with Stephen, a former co-worker. The fence was a lot of work. We had to map out all the post locations, auger most of them with a two-man gas auger, and manually dig a few, working around underground obstructions and such. Three full weekends, 10 am to dark, to the point where Tate had to ask for mercy and I could hardly walk on Mondays. Good, hard work.
Turned out better than we expected. Tate and I admire our craftsmanship every time we go outside. Well earned.
Next up, a locking bike shed in the back, then moving to the interior work.
Otherwise, great summer. We had a few days above 105. It was hot, but I sure do appreciate the sun and the heat after our long, cold, wet and icy winter. No complaints about the heat from me.
