Thursday started out unseasonably warm (54 degrees at 5:30 a.m.) but windy. The wind was from the south, so that’s why it was so warm.

I went to Big Boy’s for lunch. I got the soup, half sandwich and some spring mix salad with raspberry vinaigrette. For the soup, I chose the broccoli and ham and the half sandwich was a philly cheese steak on ciabatta bread. It was all good!

The wind had shifted to the west, heralding the coming cold front. So, walking outside was unpleasant.

By the time I drove home, the wind was rocking the truck (23 mph sustained wind).

I treated the cat, changed clothes, watched the weekend weather forecast (not good) and then got to work.

Not counting the old cupboard doors (which still need to be stripped some more), all the cabinet door backs are painted. Now it’s time to start the fronts. But, how to do that without screwing up the backs?

I had run some screws halfway down in two 2x4’s. So, I got out some of those self-adhesive felt cabinet bumpers and put one on top of each screw head. That way I have a soft, minimal “footprint” on the painted surfaces.

Then I gave the fronts their first coat of paint. I put everything away and then washed up for dinner.

This time I made an open faced roast beef sandwich. I poured the au jus on top of it and heated it in the microwave. I also heated up the rest of the Brussel sprouts and had a filling supper.

 I watched a little TV and then went to bed around 9:00 p.m.
