    Here's my workspace in the TT. A couple hours of sewing later and the purple tote was finished. I'll work on the quilt during other times in the trailer.

    I finally got my some lights wired onto our BIG boss to help with plowing operations. Started on these long ago and never got them done until now. The bottom one will give you an idea what a BIG boss is. P1040229.jpg P1040231.jpg P1040235.jpg P1040241.jpg on

    Since the wife brought her office to the house 2.5 weeks ago, I've been tads to the wall trying to make up for shamming the last 4 yrs of retirement ...I glow at night from all the cleaning chems I've been exposed to as she sits back & says "you missed a spot"...dang virus has turned my happy solitary lifestyle into a living breathing hell & I can't wait til her office reopens [LOL][CB][CB][CB]

    I have the opposite problem: I was the one who brought my office home. I spend too much time working one-handed with a baby or toddler in my lap.

    I've been contemplating cleaning/organizing my shed. Lord knows it needs it. I've been busy with troubleshooting the brakes on my camper.

    I took a break from tote bags and quilts yesterday to make face masks for us. I had not gotten on the bandwagon of sewing them for hospitals, etc. because all the use this/use that, we can use them/we can't use them, made my brain sore. However, it's allergy season here, and both Courtenay and I have asthma, so we decided having masks might prevent panic if one of us has a sneezing or coughing fit while at the grocery store. Guess it's a good thing, the state (NM) has now come out with the recommendation for people to wear masks when they have to go out.[ Not N95 ones, those are supposed to be for medical use, and I'm not sure where those who don't have a supply of masks at home or can sew them up are supposed to get them.]
    My hat is off to those who have been churning out masks for others. I worked all day and managed to finish 10, so we can change between stores, and have some extra while the used ones are washed. I have 6 more almost done, I quit sewing at 8 p.m. when my back and neck were screaming too loudly to continue.

    Started cleaning the garage. Found out i never cleaned out the cooler from disney in october. Good new is it was cold the whole time so no mold etc. Better news is i now have an extra case of beer and soda[:D] Bad news is that i just realized i cant go to the dumps as its closed. So i may just straighten up a bit rather then the clean out job i wanted to do. They will only take the garbage cans , no bulky stuff.

    Since working from home I have no commute! So as soon as I finish we do yard work! Got a lot done! Saving money not having to fill up every week and less stress not having to drive to work and back!!! I do miss the social interaction with some of the folks I work with though! Also, got the garage cleaned! It really needed it. As soon as it gets a little warmer I can start working on my project car!!!

    The dump is still open here. I'm glad, I made that trip 3 times last week.

    I go Fishing, also when you own a farm with animals you always have things to do so I will never get bored, I still miss camping but would rather wait and be safe ass this virus is a killer and @ 77 I do not need to rush my expiration date. I do miss church and our preacher does his sermon on Facebook, and also will send cd's if wanted /needed, I also miss my Lodge meetings and seeing my Brother Masons as well as going to a restaurant so we are cooking at home every night for the time being.
    Good Luck and Stay safe as "this too shall pass"
