Take today, for instance. I had planned on completing assignments due Tuesday. I know it's just Saturday, but I'm a non-traditional student so I try to be ahead of schedule. I have the wisdom of experience that reminds me its always better to be ahead than behind.
But on Friday, JB decided--since he had a bit of a break in the action-- he'd put that maple flooring down in the bedroom we've had stacked up in the the front room for a couple of years.
I always get very excited whenever he wants to do something like this because he is so meticulous about his work and because there are so many things left to do to complete this house. We have done a lot in our time together--it just needs more.
But after two days at it--shifting furniture and running outside to cut flooring--he really didn't want to finish it today. And he deserved a break.
He worked on the man cave instead and installed more boxes with knobs. He seems delighted.
I can't complain, really. After all, he cooked me dinner.
And that shot I have been wanting to get for so very long--the shot of Haji escorting me to the cattleguard--I finally attempted.
It's a difficult one, because I am driving and trying to shoot the picture at the same time. And if I slow down, my escort slows down. This is just my first attempt. But I suspect by summer's end, I may have what I want.
