Above is a picture a friend took of me goofing off with a cuppa coffee. The rest of this post has nothing to do with that, just your standard weekend report.
It was what I call a pretty good weekend. It had a lot of clouds, quite a bit of rain off and on, and was somewhat productive.
I am done with that horrible contractor. The apartment is livable, there’s still work to do, but I can handle it.
I started spreading some leftover sand and gravel. There’s a low spot in the yard where I back my car in to park. I’m filling it in. It’ll take about 6 or 8 inches in some places. With good rain, it creates quite a lake. My only worry is compacting the sand and gravel before I put dirt on top. There was some steel mesh left over, I thought it was a sheet and a half, but it’s more. I cut into managable pieces and stowed it away. I plan on using it on the floor of my future shed. And I mowed the yard.
I’m reading a book called Hyperion. It has good parts and bad. The first chapter, which I call the Catholic chapter, was interesing, I give it a 3 out of 5. The poet’s story, I thought was inimportant and boring, 1 out of 5. Sol’s story about Rachel was excellent, 5 out of 5. Mixed feelngs, good parts and bad, not an easy read. There’s other books in the series, and at this point, I don’t think I’ll bother with them. Maybe that’ll change, but I doubt it.
It was an alright weekend, we had diving plang, that were needlessly cancelled because of potential storm Gonzalo, which disappated. Like I said, a lot of rain, but it didn’t seem to interfere with anything, so it was a pretty good weekend!
