There are lots of bits and pieces to finish off - and they all take time! It's been really cold and snowy around here; I have a 300W radiant heater that helps with my hands and body, but my feet freeze! Standing on the concrete floor sucks the heat out of my feet and it's been so cold, snowy, and windy that the snow actually blows in under the barn roof ridge cap, falls inside, and sticks to the cars, van, and floor inside the barn! I have to be careful because it makes the floor super slippery.
Calvin here - after spending almost 33 years in education as a high school teacher, elementary teacher, and elementary administrator, it was time to retire! I did so happily and with no regrets; it was a terrific and fulfilling career. I do enjoy building projects as the design and building process is very therapeutic and you see a completed functional product in the end. Now to combine the build with another of Angela's and my passions - travel - is something we're really looking forward to.
