Snow, Slow and Trapped
I don't mind winter, as a matter-of-fact I rather enjoy winter. I could do with a few less sub-zero temp days, but I do enjoy it...the crisp air, that cozy feeling in the house, the snow... Okay. The snow. I do love the snow, but in the last two days we've had a total of 20". That doesn't bother me too much, except that we had a family situation this week and there was no way to make the trip. Thankfully, dad's improving so the stress factor sure has been reduced!
I did take the involuntary shut-in time to get some more work done in the basement. Thing is, I just couldn't get motivated to get started on the walls again. So I puttered around, started looking for ways to make more space so I wasn't crawling over everything all the time. One of the things that helped was this work bench. I have a home made one in the workshop, but the main part of the basement really needed one too.
This one came from Home Depot. It was $69 and was essentially pre-assembled. So that'll help with getting this place back in some kind of decent shape. I know it's a but early, there's a long way to go in the basement, but I wanted to show at least a little before and after. This was the basement a few weeks ago:
I know it still looks messy, but most of the next picture messiness is the cement mixing station I have set up. Outside of that, I think you can see how things are coming along!
Hopefully tomorrow I can get motivated enough to spend at least a little time on the walls. And just a thought - glad you're on the mend Dad! You'll be back at it in a wink!
