I spent a few minutes today making a list of all the projects I have to do, both short term and long-term, and all the little things I need to get done specifically this weekend. I filled five sheets of paper on eight sides total. I don’t think I wrote everything down. Where does all of this work come from any way? I’ll admit that one whole page of it is house projects and such, and one whole page is repair to weapons and armor which is pretty much a never-ending task, but much of it is new ideas, new projects, new things I have to write about.
I have about six anecdotes from my travels and such that need to be put in writing, but I also have to finish writing the first set of “Ten” chapters and work on catching up all the project pictures and posts. Cian the Elder came by last weekend and helped my inch the basement closer to completion, but I wrote down the things I have left to do, just to finish the spa bath, and it fills a page and a half. Sigh. I’m going to a fighting demonstration (Cian and I are fighting) tomorrow, but I hope to get more work down in the afternoon. Then, once things have settled down, and I can’t lift my arms anymore to swing a sword or a hammer, I’ll get back on here and try to catch up. Why do I think that catching up will be a never-ending task as well?
I figure it would be pretty boring to you to hear the entire list of things I plan to do this weekend and in the near term, but I thought it might be interesting to list those things (taken verbatim off my list, really) that are likely not on your average honey-do list:
Call George and check on status of ten matching helms I ordered
Finish the neck facing in Cian the Younger’s new tunic.
Finish the joinery on the medieval chest and attach the iron hinges
Find quillons appropriate for a new Bastard
Cut out the see-thru section of the basement steps
Design the Old World Bar room and check on gas lines for torches
Check all installed firestopping and finish the remainder
Run wire for in-floor heaters
Buy a chipper. Chip. A lot. Spread Chips.
Locate a lower trailer that will actually fit into the garage. Sell old trailer
Cut out the next playset leaf panel and paint it
Cut out next set of roof leaves and paint
Cut branches for the Crooked Man tower
Carve golden spires for fairy tower rooves
Check tightness of chains on Fairy Bridge
Plan Pergola Waterfall
Price parts for a conservatory for the addition
Draw the Dog Skull Cartoon
Do something Normal. Yeah right.
