Snow

Funny thing when we decided to stay home this winter everyone laughed and said “sure you are” lol
I simply replied” get your snow blower ready it will be a beast of a winter.
So time went by most of the people we know started to ask when was our departure date, I laughed and said I already pulled the boat out of the water and put it away for the winter. And then I would say “get ready it’s coming”
“What’s coming” They would say… “A cold, bitter, snow filled winter. We are staying home so it going to be a bad one.”

So my first thought as I get going this morning is I really know why we leave. It was a record I’m told for January snow fall and there is a winter weather advisory as we get ready to head out.

When the kids were younger and home we would go sledding, skiing and all the fun things one does in the snow.
My second thought is I really just don’t want to go outside and how the heck did we do all those things we used to do in the cold!
I have even found myself warming up the truck before I leave in the morning lol

Two Thoughts For Tuesday

The weather here has been incredible, one day it’s sixty five and now it’s 9 degrees and windy.
I woke up the other morning the fire had gone out, the pipes froze and it was 24 degrees in here!
My first thought is what about all the homeless we take food to. My God they must be cold!
I am going to start gathering jackets to give them.

I don’t think we would have made out ok without the electric blanket!

I know we haven’t had a Top Sites Tuesday the last couple weeks, Trina and I were in a car accident. We are ok, I spent some time in the hospital and was sent home.

My second though Is I’m loving the new windmill. It’s here put together and flying.

This beautiful windmill runs enough juice to keep the electric bill down to 3 dollars plus a 5 dollar read the meter fee and 5 dollars just to have service. Yes you guessed right, while I watch it go backwards I might as well read the meter and save the five bucks… lol

Have a great Tuesday

Two frozen thoughts

Not much to say here
1. It’s really cold
2. IT’S REALLY FRGGIN COLD

Sorry didn’t mean to yell that last one lol

So I get up and realize I have mail on my iPad.
Only certain mail goes there, yes I am going o get a windmill after all!
Lets recap… Ordered windmill, largest storm ever to hit the china sea, paperwork filed with customs ISF Late 10 ( whatever the —- that ment) the cargo arrived late, then allocated and trucked to Mongolia, cargo is no held hostage for correct cargo by other recipients for their cargo, negotiations accomplished, paid extra 500 or so split by everyone, should arrive to Baltimore Port tomorrow. My first thought (said out loud) was wow I am really going to pull this off.

So the morning goes along, you know getting ready, coffee… Trina says you talk about this as if you thought you weren’t going to get one. My second thought was do I really say what comes to mind!?
Yes dear you are correct, I took the chance and just figured I through the money away. Her reply “so that’s why you have been so calm about this?”
Yes to be truthful, thinking that I was paying in full to the supplier in china, the forwarder, the agent, customs and God only knows who else if it really got here it would have to be a miracle.
My lovely wife’s reply, only you…

Have a great Tuesday

Working in the cold

It has been a great summer of hard work and lot of cool projects.

20131105-064902.jpg
Last week we took out two twenty four foot wood beams held up by posts on 8′ centers and installed steel I beams.
The owner wanted the posts gone and the large room split in half.
Since we have been inside working for the most part the weather hasn’t effected us to much.

Before we started the beam we tore out all the rotten supports and some of the foundation

My first thought as I get ready to head out today is I am glad they are in and finished.

Well wouldn’t you know it it’s time to put the cedar siding back and fill it in with new on the outside ofthe house we’re working on.
My second thought is it is 36 degrees outside! What happened to the Indian summer… Really 36 degrees already?

So I am geared up as if I am off to the snow it’s going to be a cold day for sure.

Have a great Tuesday

Fall Is Here!

As we drove off to work today headed down the lane. I noticed something different, it usually looks so, well, just happy!
See what I mean 🙂

My first thought was… Crap Fall is here!

20131022-174130.jpg
It’s almost hard to fathom we are going to stay, the cruisers are already at anchor in our area already heading South.   The big schooners will be in Cambridge for a rendezvous on Sunday.

Oh hell it’s a good thing they pulled the boat out of the water already!

As I started my work this morning I remembered why I like to tear up old houses. Some would say I’m crazy, ah heck, maybe they are right lol

But it’s a good feeling when you take a house that looks like this

And turn into this, the house is over a hundred years old.
The electrician trenched pathways through the old plaster everywhere, the trim was all messed up, paneling in many rooms and falling down plaster… What a mess to say the least

Front of Old Farm House Front of Old Farm House

It came out pretty good, nice and clean.  The house even already has a contract for purchase on it 🙂

And Loving It

We are on our way to work this crisp fall morning, about an hour drive.
Trina and I joke around finding funny songs on Pandora.
Some would say yuck what a drive, we just seem to make it fun.

My first thought as we travel this morning is… Because of what we do we are together all the time and enjoy every minute. Working, traveling or just hanging out.

I don’t know to many other couples that are together as much as we are. Some have asked “don’t you need a break?” We always laugh and say at the same time he/she wouldn’t be gone two minutes!
It seems as though we have done so much together, but those are the memories that make a wealthy soul. The memories we share as we go through life.

I don’t know why but whatever we are doing it always seems like we are on another adventure.

My second thought before I go paint today. It doesn’t take money to be happy.
Having a best friend, soulmate and perfect wife, well need I say more?

Life is good and I’m loving it!

Have a great Tuesday
