Jo-Ann gave me a hand " for an hour " yesterday. Well that's what I told her it would be. By the time we got all the piano hinges on the two new peg board storage systems and put the trim on and attached wall cleats and moved stuff around and hung them on the walls it was more like six hours later. My project estimating wetware was totally off on this one. Mind you we did stop for a refreshing tea break to admire our handiwork. The shop cat, Boose, needed some scrootches of course. And Xena needed a few chase the blue ball ( actually a pink ball now) sessions. A few more sub-projects and I will be able to finish organizing, putting up the tools, and get on with the overhead door installation. The only problem with doing it now is that (a) the parts are under four feet of snow, and (b) it was -26c(-14.8f) this morning. Taking the double tarps off of the door opening will probably be a little chilly. I just might wait a bit 'till it warms up. The impetus to getting it done is that I want to rewire the skidsteer and it would be nice to do it in a heated shop. The cold just makes equipment repairs a miserable proposition.
Today is clear and crisp. After a breakfast of fresh scrambled eggs and home made bread we're off to town to get some fuse holders for a 12 volt project on the Toyota. And bring in another weeks wood supply. And cut some kindling. And maybe, get a little tool fondling, -er, organizing done.
