Seley\  If you haven’t checked the seal around all your windows and cleared out your gutters lately, go do that. Right now. We’ll wait!

We’ve had a real run of bad luck with our house lately, the worst and most recent being wood rot below our front door – which is right below where my art desk usually sits in my room! It’s stabilized for now, at least.

I’ve been meaning to rearrange my furniture anyway…

Fox\ Labor Day Weekend. I was supposed to be welding an exhaust back together. Instead I can’t even get the manifold bolts to let go (Yes, I’ve tried every possible recommendation that exists–you just have to keep repeating them after letting it soak in penetrant) and this is all after I find the worst damage I’ve ever seen in this house on the very last day of my two weeks of ‘vacation’.
