A quick update from the outsiders world

What a long strange trip its been.  My life is nothing when it isn't weird, if I do not have some form a surreal activity going on I just fall into a general state of moroseness, however, when thing occur that make life at least moderately interesting, or unpredictable at a minimum, then everything seems to get better.

It has at least gotten to a state of moderate unpredictability, does any of it make any sense?  No, absolutely not.  But moderate unpredictability.  The squirrels are content for the moment. 

I am impatiently awaiting the arrival of spring.  We were supposed to get a snowstorm, but it went south of us, April Fools!  I guess just to the south they did get a foot of snow.  I am guessing that all of the near misses that we got this year will be followed up next year, or the year after with a series of hits.

There is a painting that has been staring at me waiting for me to finish it for a while.  It is cold and lousy today, and other than a trip to Menard's there is not a whole lot I need to accomplish today in the world.  It is too cold and windy to go out and do any work in the yard, there may be enough sunlight to make the greenhouse pleasant for a while, but I am really questionable on whether that is a reality or not.

I have, once again, ditched the Facebook.  I just got sick of it, it is such a negative influence on life, and such an absurd waste of time.  Get rid of Facebook, subscribe to a blog!

I have been trying to figure out how to free up some railings and what-not on the boat so I can re-seat them before summer arrives, or more accurately, enough ice goes away that I can chuck the boat in the water.  I am rally looking forward to the summer and being able to get working on things.  There are so many things that I wan to get cleaned up, situated, generally arranged.  I want to be able to finally spend a night on the boat and sleep with the gentle rocking, and lapping of waves on the hull.

This all falls under those life goal things that I have had for a long time, and have never been able to achieve.  The intentions include doing a lot more painting, and doing a lot more writing.  So there may be a burst of activity in the coming months as the boat gets put together and I have time to spend time finding out who I am, and who I want to be.  You would think that I would have figured out these aspects of my life years ago, but what can I say, I am a slow bloomer.

Oh well, I think it is about time to get moving and make my shopping run to Menards.  I want to get the stuff I need to get some more work done in the greenhouse, and possibly some goodies for working on the boat, painters tape, some brushes for spar varnish, maybe even some paint thinner which serves many purposes in my life!

Oh well, off to go get cleaned up and on my way, I shall return!
