    I finished building a bookshelf today. It still needs a finish, but it’s built. I really enjoyed this project and am looking forward to working on more larger pieces.

    I gave my students “toilet tokens” today. Last night, I printed off some miniature toilets on my 3D printer and each of my students in one of my classes one. I’ve had enough of them leaving class every single day.

    We moved furniture today. Of course, I woke up late so we were delayed getting started. The plan was to go over last night to get things ready but we never made it. I fell asleep after work. I was out. Cold. By the time I woke up it was too late to do much…

    I slept in the bed alone last night. I thought it was going to be glorious. I’d put my iPad on the bed with a show playing on it like I used to, I’d sleep on the lefthand side like I use to, and the girls would join me like they used to. It started…

    I bought HSS chisels and a bench grinder today. Using them scared the shit right out of me.

    I was up until 3 am this morning, taking photos of pens. I wanted to make sure to get some pictures before delivering them. This afternoon, we made our way over to Bill Miles for Men to deliver 18 pens.

    I woke up today with a lot on my mind. Well, a lot of ideas about what to do with the workshop. I’m having trouble keeping things straight so I had to start a list. I managed to write down two items before forgetting about it, as well. To help me move forward, I decided…

    Almost a month ago, we signed up with Aro Market, a shop that sells crafts. It’s like a street market in a store. It’s all right. Tomorrow, we’re going in to set up our shelf.

    A “hard launch,” I’m told, is when you post a picture of you and your partner on Instagram after having kept it a secret. A “soft launch” is when you post a picture of you and your partner on Instagram at the end of a gallery of related photos after having kept it a secret.…

    Some days are slower than others. Today, we took a pedal boat around the lagoon at Bowness Park. We were never moving too fast. For an hour, without any gusto, we pedalled.

    Despite growing up only a couple of hours away, I’ve never been to the tea house at the end of the hike around Lake Louise. Today we made the hike.

    In PEI, we went to the original Cows Creamery. We waited in line to get ice cream twice. It was good. I usually get a fruit flavour, which I did on the first occasion, but I branched out and got one maple flavoured scoop and one scoop of a caramel flavour the second time. That’s…
