I tried. Be excellent. Don't be excellent. Do what makes you happy.

After two weekends of staining our new front door, I'm almost positive that I won't be turning away any offers to run my own home rehab TV shows...unless I'm going to be the "don't do this" example. It's not perfect, but I will admit to getting a hell of a rush of the i-made-dis variety when I see it.

I've also started cooking again now that it's turned a little colder and crock pots are back in season. It's so lovely to be able to run to the store for the meat/veg, toss that mess into the pot, seal the lid, and five hours later we have dinner. I've found some amazing damn recipes, too. Side note, when it comes to recipe maintenance, the Paprika app is the best I've found. Especially since it has the "send ingredients to grocery list" function, then you just take off what you already have and done. It's one of the few apps I've ever paid for, but worth every penny.

What else?

My family is about to get our second centurion. My great Aunt turns 100 later this month. She's the last of the siblings alive, and the second to hit triple digits after my grandma. I am sticking to my current plan in that regard - I'm going to start BASE jumping when I hit 85.

Not much else going on with me. Work continues to dance on my last nerve, but I'm ever hopeful that things will get better in that mythical some day.

...I am choosing this moment to be pedantic purely because the idea of your 100-year-old aunt as a Centurion all in Roman armour is AMAZING and I thought you would like it, rather than because it is actually a cardinal sin.

Crockpots are awesome. Hope the DIY goes well.
