COVID-19 Hunker-down Log. Stardate 43974.25

Combating boredom. Work continues on refinishing the deck, well, sorta. I’m able to get about 3-4 hours of honest work in each day, but it’s quite a job stripping old finish from the wood. I took most of the day off yesterday to allow the body to recover. My butt, knees and back were complaining. It’s all good though, I’m not really in a rush and want to have a nice result. The big consideration at the moment is the weather. It’s been nice and warm, but windy, these past several days and I’ve taken good advantage of that situation. The weather report is predicting rain on Sunday but next week is looking like it’s going to return to warm and sunny. So, I’ll get my time in today and then wait until next week to finish the prep work and start laying down some stain. Need a couple of dry days for that stain to properly dry, so that’s the ticket. Start painting by Tuesday.

Happy thought inventory. Trudy is heading to the cabin next week to open it for the summer. Once we have it powered up and running, I see more cabin time coming, which means I can get outdoors in the wilderness to start my annual moose hunts for photography. The real fun doesn’t start until July, but there are always moose hanging out near the village this time of year, so that’s a good way to get my mind right and start the new photography season. No major projects slated for the cabin this year, as the pandemic is probably going to require we not bring a bunch of strangers and contractors to the place. It’s in pretty good shape as it is, but I know something will come up. It always does.
