Gave a spelling test.
Vacuumed downstairs.
Ran a load of laundry.
Put ships wheel on sloop. Made a bowsprit, fitted it and glued it in place. Tried to make an anchor windlass, but that was a disaster. Need to rethink that one.
Otherwise normal "daddy can haves?"

Some Laundry, Shopping, cleaned the Kitchen fridge and freezer after the Thanksgiving purge, worked out and now believe my oldest dog is dying before my eyes. He has had seizure issues that we have been dealing with for a while. He has been acting weird all day. Pacing around. He usually sleeps 18-20 hours a day. Rescued Beagle. he , for the first time in forever did not eat his dinner. Maybe it was the flu shot he got last week. Who knows. I just found him downstairs in the basement by himself. He never did that. Time will tell.

I've been letting this thread languish.

I got the humidifier up and running the other day. It's wired up to kick on when the heat does. So far there's no noticeable difference and the RH is still a tad low but any little bit helps.

Today I went to the Mazda dealer to have them work on the airbag igniter; we'd received notice of a recall. I still have some more Christmas shopping yet to do as well.

My biggest road block has been that I checked out Game of Thrones from the library. I'm really behind and am just about to finish up Season 1 so no spoilers please.

Enjoy he Game of Thrones porn fellas. I won't spoil it. Never saw it. Heard a lot about it.



Shopping, went on a 6-7 mile hilly power walk and put up outside Christmas decorations. Popped 2 Advils. Bushed!

Sick kid. I administered meds on a time chart. Wifey went to the Doc for the cold that won't go away. He said sinus infection.
Poppa goes tomorrow.
I'm not sick. I was. Not anymore. Being sick lowers the seizure threshold. With the implant, I'll go months seizure free and get sick and have a couple seizures. It could be the over the counters or antibiotics as well. I have a couple "highly recommended" OTCs, but still...

Vacuumed downstairs.
Found a DiY app and made a couple planispheres. One for Pippa. One for me. It's the most basic astronomy device. It's a must have.
I have a couple camera based ones in my phone and kindle but the motion will make you sea sick or give your eyes whiplash.
I found a recipe for ketogenic dinner rolls aka "fathead rolls" and made them to go with our Keto chili dinner. Rolls start to finish, 20 minutes!

I just finished season 1 last night. I immediately put season 2 on order to be picked up at my local library.

Later today though, Joey actually offered to help me set up the rest of the outdoor Xmas lights. He tells me he hates the twinklers that are on our indoor tree. I'm thinking I may need to run with this!

Put bilge pumps on the sloop. Photos at "bottledshipbuilder.com" forum :build logs, Jeff b's 3rd build.
Dealt with Pippas cold. She threw a fit at lunch, throwing stuff and then crying because she might miss the dance recital Friday.
Threw down some wood cleaner/polish in the floors and oushed it around in the hallway and the dining room. Now my back hurts.
Gonna make snickerdoodle freezer fatbombs and call it a day.
