Perhaps that’s a new one on you; storm windows. My house is old and still has the original windows with the ‘storms’. I’ve removed the storm windows to paint them and now forget which windows they came off of – dummy me. Last time I painted the house I labelled all the storms so I’d know where they belonged. I’m not getting any smarter. The best part about the old windows in my house? The old leaded glass is so distorted that I don’t need drapes or blinds! Okay, okay. I’m joking…a bit.
Got the wood stove in a few weeks ago. 6 cord of maple to churn through this winter…3 cord piled…another 3 waiting. I hope to not burn much oil at all. It’s just too expensive with the old house – I’m talking ‘thousands…and thousands’.
I’ve loaded a few tunes on the boys’ at www.myspace.com/cusackboys Note, I'm too lazy to add a proper link so you'll have to copy and paste to your browser. They recorded a week ago – straight off the floor – some of it in one take. It’s nothing fancy at all. Call it a springboard to help launch other things – gigs, etc. There’s seed money in form of grants, etc available that they can tap into to put a ‘real’ recording together. They’re working on it.
Jon will turn 11 next Saturday, the 30th. He will go to public school this year – Grade 6. Chris will be in Grade 8. It’s amazing how they grow up. Ben will be 6 in November. Sam’s 9th birthday is in February. Sam and Ben will homeschool again. I’m getting a little misty without them around. Can you tell? (Sort of...but not so bad).
Anyhow, I’m still busy as ever with my job. Our company is moving to a new location in a week or so - actually closer to home by about 1 K. There will be a shower in the new place so I hope to run to and from work.
I’ve been biking to work lately and my legs feel like crap. It’s punishing – all uphill to the office – oh, the pain. Of course, it’s downhill all the way home. I was running a little late this morning so I took off with my bagel in hand…pedalling up the road. It’s not easy to eat a bagel and ride a bike at the same time…uphill.
Enough for the moment. I’ll be back. Just so you know, I have a plan to start running again in a few weeks. I will make a comeback.
