praying for myself. It’s a self-centric sort of week. Praying that my surgery goes well and that whatever is found is merely an inconvenience.
::The Project I picked out the range for the kitchen, and am still searching for a drawer type microwave. I’ve nailed down the arrangement of the cabinets and have started a list of details I want include, like the self-closing drawer stops, a lazy susan gizmo in the corner cabinet and wide, deep drawers. I still haven’t picked out the actual cabinet style. That task needs to be completed this week, so that I can get a conference meeting with the installation designer for measurements. Um yeah. Then I’ll need to start rethinking everything because I’m sure that what I want either won’t actually fit in the space, or will mean lots of custom builds.

Yes, this is a real mailbox, spotted in a neighboring town. It has a bear on top of it. I don’t know why. It’s as random as local high schools who have elk and kangaroos as mascots, neither of which are indigenous to Texas.
Biology project that involves spray paint, glitter and a bit of concrete mix. Candy Corn, because it’s Halloween. Workday for mountain bike trail building. A day or two of rest.
