I know it is July and winter, but it is hard to refer to July as anything but summer after a lifetime of conditioning. What with the fields of sunflowers and shimmering heat of the Tour de France, I am feeling a bit summery. It is also the nicest (warmest) winter in a long time, feels like summer in NS to me.
I note with interest that real athletes take whole blocks of time of for recovery. Today I decided to save my energy for some chores, and take a second (!) day off the bike. I hung out with a best mate,
and he seemed to enjoy a day spent in one spot with me in sight as I got stuck into 'the holiday project'. Here you see a half day of effort, scraping paint off of the french doors with the wee tool in the photo. It is hard work, but once you get a bit of practice and a leading edge it goes along.
When I finish these doors there are more, as well as casements and sills. *sigh* I am riding tomorrow, surely I can do this when I am sleepy....
