Flame out

Posted on Wednesday, August 16th, 2017 at 12:03 am

Well, I’ve finished the first round of chores in getting the place livable in something resembling normalcy.

.

The truck parking spot is trimmed.  I can pull in without scraping limbs and I don’t have to dodge vines to get to the house.  I left a sizable pile.

.

The kitchen is functioning as a kitchen should, even though there is still more clean up and arranging to do on shelves and counters.  But it’s not a lot and it can wait until I feel inspired.  I am cooking again on home turf.

.

The office has the basics, three screens, four external drives, quick access to the rest of the periphery.

.

Washer works.  The drying rack is a little slow in the bathroom, would be faster in the fan generated breeze going through the house.  The bathroom is still usable.

.

And I am tired, and my body is telling me to slow own.  So I’m staying home tomorrow instead of heading to Bryan.  I’ve been at it since last Tuesday, and I need a day off.  I held up to the rigors better than I expected.  But when the body hits the wall, there is no arguing with it.
