Welcome back everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend and accomplished a lot. Let's dive in. Friday: Since the wife was off work and had cleaned had most everything ready for guests, we drove into town for a few Holiday items as well as Menards. I had a bathroom faucet that needed attention as well as a few other house repairs to complete before our guests arrived. A quick trip to the small panel section of the store had me looking at some Baltic Birch that was reduced for quick sale due to damage. The wife really liked the grain and suggested I use this for the fascia of the shadowbox, so I picked up both panels. We found a new restaurant in on the way home and ended the evening with a nice meal from a new local establishment. Saturday: The day started with coffee and hopes to work on the shadowbox but that quickly went out the window with the bathroom faucet. There is an unwritten law that every plumbing repair is never easy and requires multiple trips to the hardware store. A simple replacement of the faucet handle took all afternoon and trips to two hardware stores. Once the drama of the faucet was completed, I turned my attention to other repairs and soon Angela' father and grandma arrived followed by Jared and his girlfriend. We had a very nice visit, enjoyed a great Italian dinner then went back home to enjoy a new homemade desert recipe Angela made. Her desert was a hit, and we had a pleasant time visiting. Sunday: Throughout the course of the previous night, Ang's dad had hinted on taking a break from the Falcon so we agreed that we would meet for breakfast and then look into a few possibilities for a house. After a meeting for breakfast, we looked at a few houses that are closer to Angela's work but only one was a possibility. We went to an open house and talked to a realtor. We'll keep looking but nothing yet with our expectations has come into the market and we may wait until spring. Angela's dad dropped me off and Angela went to Costco for Thanksgiving shopping. The weather was so warm, so I decided to hang Christmas lights then rake and burn leaves. By the time Ang got home I was about halfway through the front yard. We both tackled the front hard and parking area until 5:30 and now have a clean area to set up the rest of the Christmas decorations come Friday. We can tell the holidays are here now as my free time is impacted due to Holiday errands and projects as it was now time for dinner and the end of the weekend. So how about you? What did you get done this weekend. Are the Holidays impacting your train time? Speaking of Holidays, many of us in the United States will be celebrating Thanksgiving this week and as such, we'll not have the Weekend Modeling Plans posted Friday, but Wednesday. We'll gather around on Wednesday the 22nd for a special Thanksgiving long weekend and first weekend into December Weekend Modeling Plans. Until then, I hope you have a good, short week and until Wednesday... High Greens!
