K. second last day of ... not being at work.
It was kind of a vacation... but the shoulder, and client work...
Gets in the way of calling it a vacay. :)

The job jar zone included:
~ repairing a leak in our awesome shower.
~ fixing my computer (been DOA for two weeks)
~ "finish" the pot light wiring in the theater room (a "comply with the codes" thing).

Yeah... and so, I ground out "grout" between wall and floor tiles for hours...
Ripped out all kinds of caulking...
Re-grouted, re-caulked.
... that was the easy part.
See... the grout leaked into the wall... :(
So I'm digging out a big section of wall (including a framing 2x4 that's waterlogged-soft)
Messy and a big drywalling-repair-land thing to finish.

The computer?
When Suzanne's computer died... we got her a laptop.
She and I had duplicate computers... so I figured... spare parts.
So out of nowhere... my computer stops booting.

I've tried everything.
I cant get a single working computer out of all the...spare parts. :(
I think "drive enclosures" and a terabyte USB drive is in my future.

The lighting?
Well the step ladder is downstairs...
(it's a start!)

The secret to good choco chip cookies.
Two things:
~ use equal parts crisco (lard) and butter.
~ take the time to cream the eggs, sugar and butter and only add the dry stuff... a wee bit at a time.

K... time to go make cookie dough.
