Started removing the plaster from the brick wall. I started by hand using a hammer and a stiff wall scrapper but that wasn’t ideal. Ended up buying a oscillating multi tool and it works much better. Still an absolute pain but I’m getting there. I still need to clean up a few more bricks here and there, replace a few others and do the repointing.
No good photos of the lunar eclipse (super blood moon or something ) but seeing it was pretty cool. Froze my butt for two hours at the top of a parking lot near Colfax Ave & York. Good views from up there.
Did manage to take a photo of the moon in the evening but I still need to get used to my new mirror lens…
I love my house (most of it is perfectly livable) but there’s no way around it; the basement is a complete disaster (see photos…). Since I’m not big on sitting around during vacation I thought I’d get started on that. I tore down the shelves, removed the concrete & plaster from the brick walls, got rid of crumbling ceiling and remove all the junk that’s been lying around for decades. Pretty much filling up a 15 yard dumpster roll-off with 4 tons of crap. I also clean up my backyard. Most importantly I have a plan and I’ve completed all the research. I know everything there is to know about code. I might even use some of it as “guideline”. Just kidding.
This song always makes me think of an old – former – friend of mine. In all fairness she’d probably tell me to look in the mirror. Oh well, I’m an idiot. Anyway, the sound on this particular recording (Live From the Village) is absolutely amazing. Great talent all around from the musicians to the producer & sound engineers.
