With only a couple of days left before Christmas, I've got the gifts wrapped and already eaten a big handful of cookies the Missus baked, so other than helping out with some housecleaning chores, I'm set.
The weather has been bitter cold but like always, after I spend a couple hours shoveling a big thaw is coming. That should help with the county roads around here. They're still pretty rough but that's all part of living in the country. So take that as an observation as opposed to a bitch. Likewise with shoveling around the shack. I enjoy being outside in the winter even if it's on the business end of a shovel. With the warm-up I'll get back out in the shop. "I shall use my time."
