So much for that schedule...

The blog-updating one, not the house-working-on one. Apparently I didn't make a single post while on vacation (surprise, surprise), so I'll have to catch up ... some other time. Meanwhile, let's get the typing started again with, if nothing else, a not-very-elucidating list of things I did around the house today.

- husked the last of the walnuts

- plugged the couple of carpenter bee holes from last summer with that savior of old houses, Abatron
- created more tool hooks in the back room

More stuff later, as always.
