It’s freaking HOT, 95 degrees. I met Raven in town at the Safeway Bucky’s for coffee this morning. We quickly cruised the farmers market, no gherkins yet, no purchases. We jumped in my car and headed for Home Depot for 26 more pieces of dog eared redwood fencing as I’m building a gate for Elliot’s driveway, just fit in the trunk back seat folded down. Raven bought a 2 foot wire fence for her yard while I went looking for tie plates. I didn’t get the Tee plates as these looked better, much thinner so I won’t have to inlay them, cheaper each but as I’m doubling them each side they cost more. I just need screws.
Getting home and hungry I made a potato salad, steamed green beans, those Porter beer crackers I got for Christmas, cheese, pickled herring Raven bought on a Swedish whim, why we made the rest. The potato salad was great, the herring odd, not bad.
While I was cooking Raven painted more details on the vardo. After lunch it was hot, she moved in to the computer room to research registering the vardo at the DMV. We built a travel trailer, not a coach trailer as it’s small enough.
I moved the saw to the driveway and ripped boards, 28 at 2 1/2 inches and 10 at 3 inches. Raven helped me by holding the ruler as I drew an arc on 5 boards. Here is a 3D sketch I made at work with the good tools.
It’s too hot to be in the sun, I moved the boards into the garage to reduce warping as they are green wet. More tomorrow earlier.
Raven wants to learn how to wrap things in wire for sale. We sat in front of the fan as I showed her a simple three wire twist net, then I showed her my crystal wrap. Here is her first fair attempt.
Dang, it’s getting hard to see without a microscope any more even with my glasses. Time to see the optometrist again.
Raven headed home to see opening night of a dance she choreographed. Laden with green beans, eggs, cheese, a bottle of bubbly water and the rest of the pickled herring. 🙂
A good day.
