Well, I was hoping to visit my mother for Christmas on the 24, 25, and 26.
But due to Winter Storm Elliot, otherwise known as a bomb cyclone, moving in on Thurs. and Fri., I most likely won't visit her till the 25 and 26.

Kobuk. Been watching reports on this cyclone as well. We're only supposed to get snow on Thursday. They've down grated the amount. However they are rarely right. We could get non or a foot when they call for 1 to 3 inches. My mom and brother are supposed to be here Christmas day. Depending on the weather. I may end up packing the entire meal and going to their place.

cooking a turkey , i forgot the name of the method, it is a hot water bath for hours.  The turkey will be in a boiling bag, only its juices will be in there with some seasoning.
So the turkey will not be water logged or mushy, it will be buttery, seasoned with herbs, and pepper and salt, and in its own turkey fat juices!

down side is it takes like 12-16 hours... but it is LOW heat just 200F.  The meat falls off the bone completely.  I serve it as sections.
I am weird.

Sounds delicious! :)

Anyway........no Christmas for me. :( At least, not on Sat. and Sun. anyway. If I have Christmas with my mom, it will be later like on Mon. and Tues. or some other days. This winter bomb cyclone has made a mess of holiday travel plans.  >:(

Christmas! Lasagna, polenta marinara, garlic bread made with home made ciabatta bread and all the rest of the trimmings. We're not exchanging gifts this year. Got everyone a can of three flavors popcorn. Because I know everyone will show up with these to give anyway.

My CAP squadron is building model rockets on Saturday and ordering out for lunch. If the weather doesn't go sour, then I may join them.

I will probably be cleaning house this weekend.  Maybe I can do something fun despite that.

Building a set of wood shelves in the basement. I've run out of room and need more. Or I need to stop buying so much stuff. :) And I'm finally taking the time to get back into painting. Doing studies first. Four different ones. Cast studies, with paint, not a pencil. I'm using white material and controlled lighting. Proportion studies. Again with a brush and paint. Continuing the value studies. And Master studies. Master studies are copying a full or portion of a painting done by someone you like. I'll be mainly copying painting by Antoine Bouvard and the Barbazon school of art movement. Just for reference the Barbazon school was the first major movement away from realism. The painters who inspired Monet.

I re anchored a shelving unit in garage.  It was connected to one stud with one screw.  Other screws were in dry wall.  Idiots!! It was ready to fall.

I then erected another heavy duty plastic shelving unit. 

I then fixed up my jeeps seat covers and put new elastic on them.
Washed the covers.  Man they were dirty.
Washed jeep.  Then vacuumed inside and washed windows.  They were covered with dog goooo

Walked dog 10 miles. 
Shoveled driveway.
Cooked dinner
Did laundry
Sealed hard wood floor.
Grocery shopping
Furtopia, bragging I did a lot on the weekend.

I have days where I can do a lot.
But they are rare,  so I do as much as I can, when I can.
Thank you God for this productive weekend.

Nothing much. Another arctic cold front on the way plus more snow.
Probably just stay home, stay warm, relax, watch movies, build a model, and drink hot chocolate.

Hoping they get more decent people to rent the house next to me again. Glad they finally got their house built. Hate to see them go. Making more bread, learning more and relaxing from a ruff week at work.

I'm listening to ham radio.  Nothing much happening here.
Staying in,  pneumonia getting worse despite meds.

I either need to become more active in ham radio or just bail on it.
I have too many interests to be good at any of them. Sucks.

Hopefully get taxes done and forget about it.

I do not want to go to work.  But I will because they think I'm faking illness.   I love work... not.

Cleaning up the basement after a minor flooding. Working on FPS videos.

Reading, doing painting exercises, watching anime. Rinse and repeat.

Not doing much. Might walk the dogs, might play Five Night's at Freddy's on the switch, might start a new litter in wolfquest, it's all up in the air!

Fixing the pipes under my bathroom sink. Clogged and sprang a leak. Making a 'proofing box'. Because I keep my house on the cool side threw winter I need a warm spot to proof bread dough. Nothing fancy. Be a cardboard box with space enough for a lamp and a bowl for the bread dough.

Looks like I'm getting a plumber for this job. No idea how my father in  law got this to work. I can't. Tighten two threaded ends together without a flange. Perhaps the plumber will have a fix for my 1950's always clogging inside the wall drain pipes as well.

When all else fails go to youtube. I had no idea there was a thing called a 'trap adapter'. And had no idea there was supposed to be a 1/4 inch slope to all drain pipes. The entire under the sink system is about to be replaced. It's not going to help the in wall drainage problem. That's a 1950's till now issue. Will help the leaking that happens when it does clog.

Edit a few videos for Funday Pawpet Show. Bike ride on the rail trail. Draw another episode of my "lame" comic.

Looks like my weekend project is going on. Told the guy at Lowe's what I needed. Gave me the wrong size pipe adapter. Now I'm going to have to make another 50 mile round trip to a different store to get the right one. When it's all done it will drain better. And be up to code as well. My father in law did what he could with the parts he was able to get here in town.  Lasted for over twenty years.
