Hi Jim:

Been doing a lot of little things to get ready to move the cooking apparatus from the cabin over to the house. It seems there's always just one more thing to do...

I think I have the wood all cut for the ceiling now, and each of the little octagons needs to be hand sanded on sixteen edges to round them over just a touch. Only 40 done so far, more than another 100 to go!

A big blow and heavy rain overnight, which brought down more leaves. And here I thought there wasn't any left. Got them all raked up and on the compost this afternoon.

Might get back later with a couple of pics.

Brrrr, that just made me shiver, I can just feel the cold damp air now, but that wood heat is soooo nice, I like it much better than electric, what am I talking about we still don't have heat in the house yet, just a couple of chill chasers. Hard to believe, down to freezing several times and it says about 68 with the chill chasers, so far.

I bet you don't like doing the same thing over and over, I sure don't, just dream of fishing, hmmm you don't like fishing, OK just think of working on your car and it will go much faster. Stay warm my friend.

It's nice and warm inside Jim, no problem there at all. Just jeep the wood stove stoked up and it's lovely.

This guy arrived in the bay late last night, well after dark. His mooring is only about 25 yards away from mine. When he arrived his dinghy was full of water and he obviously could not see well enough to get it bailed out. So he stayed on his boat all night and didn't even bother to try to get ashore until nearly 10 this morning. You can see how his dinghy is still riding half submerged as he drove in to shore this morning.

Sorry about that...the dinghy is the brown thing just aft of the bow and it is sitting on its' side half under water. The pic doesn't show it that well.

The kitchen drawers will be painted ASAP, but I don't like the end grain of the plywood showing. So I have cut some cedar strips I guess just a little over 1/16" thick to cover that.

I went and made the deep drawers about 1/4" too deep for my 12" clamps. I think I should have thought about that earlier...oh well, these will do the job.

Just noticed something else. I see I will have to set the small nails in at the sides of the drawers and then fill the holes. One more thing to do. It's always something.

Wouldn't it be neat if you could really do that!

These are the little squares going on the ceiling. Just put the first coat of Varathane on. It's not all of them, just the first batch.
