Hump Day



It was cold with a sharp north wind on Wednesday. It even felt cold inside at work (and I’m usually too warm). Before I left, I took out the last container of my meat pasta sauce I made last September to thaw.

I took in my blank Christmas cards, stamps, address labels and return labels. I can’t seem to find the time to do them at home. So, I grabbed a quick cheeseburger and a bowl of soup for lunch and then came back and started filling them out. I got about half done before I stopped and went back to work.

I left the truck outside in the cold when I got home. I changed clothes and started the Wednesday night wash.

Then I carried the computer table out into the garage. I got out the palm sander and sandpaper and proceed to sand it three times, using first 60 grit, then 150 grit and finally 220 grit paper.

I measured a 45 degree angle on each corner (three inches in) and a 1/8-inch mark down at the corner. Then I sanded the corners on an angle down to that mark. Again, I wanted to make it look more like furniture and give it some character.

I finished up, opened the garage door and blew the table (and myself) off with the air compressor. I carried the table back inside, pulled the truck back in and buttoned everything back up for the night.

It was after 8:00 p.m. by then, so I cooked a box of spaghetti while I warmed up the pasta sauce. I put the two together and had a nice homemade meal for a change!

I joined the Red Wings/Maple Leaf game in progress. Good game, but we lost 2-1 in overtime.

I shut off the TV and went to bed.
