A symbolic beginning, but a beginning.

That’s the four corners of my new permanent woodshed, which I need to finish so I can move the big pile of firewood that didn’t get burned on schedule this winter, which I need to move so I can begin work on the cabin addition. I need to let the cement cure, and then the rest will go up quickly. Never got the blocks I wanted for flooring, but I think I’m going to use native slate instead. That way I can keep moving.

I have found that when I’m lying in bed in the morning thinking through a procedure about two steps ahead of where I am, the project is going well. When I lay there and wonder how I’m ever going to accomplish the next thing I need to do, it’s going badly. By that standard, things are going well. But the season will get away from me if I don’t establish some momentum. I want the bedroom enclosed and painted before Monsoon.

    That’s something I run into frequently, dealing with a causal chain and there are times when I gotta say it drives me nuts. Not sure where I read it but, as the saying goes… it’s amateurs who talk strategy and tactics while it’s the professionals who talk logistics. Good luck Joel.

    Can you expand on the term “native slate”? Does that mean “free floor”?

    Yes. That’s exactly what it means.

To the stake with the heretic!
