The list of "honey-dos" and chores which must be completed is nearly complete. After all the moving and renovating we did, a couple of months back, there are still a few things left to do ... but not many.
This morning, I'll be installing new light fixtures in both bathrooms, upgrading from the "entry-level 1960s" style to modern glass-and-chrome. After that, we're mostly down to a few artwork/decor choices for the guestroom, but not much else in terms of working with tools.
My wife and Younger Daughter are participating in a five-mile "Run for Women" (about breast cancer) this morning, and are a little bit nervous about it - it's the first actual competition for either of them.
In other news: last night I installed sling swivels on my Marlin Model 60 (wood stock), and added a cotton web sling which I'd borrowed from Older Daughter. It had been on the M1 Garand, but that location didn't sit well with me.
So the Garand received a brand spankin' 1907-style leather sling, and Daughter was kind enough to play the "how to position the frogs and keepers" video on her phone while I followed the instructions.
There was something a bit poignant about outfitting an M1 with a leather sling on D-Day ... just seemed appropriate, ya know?
Why the slings? I suspect I've forgotten to mention it, but I signed up for an Appleseed weekend in Tok, Alaska (310 miles northeast of Anchorage) at the end of the month. Since she's an instructor, we'll be riding together, and camping in the truck-bed tent we gave to her last Christmas. We'll make a four-day sojourn out of it, including two days of travel.
It's gonna be fun.
And now I'm off to think about breakfast, and then sticking my hands into someone else's wiring job. I suspect it'll go smoothly enough.
Y'all take care out there, and enjoy your weekend. Thanks for stopping by, friends.
