I saw this on Steve Taylor’s blog who borrowed the idea from Marko. I kind of liked it and thought it may make an interesting weekly feature here.
The weekend that was: We spent a four day weekend at the cabin. It was what I expected for fall in Saskatchewan. Overcast, cool, and rainy. Not great if you are harvesting but not a bad weekend at the lake. Ever since I was a kid, I loved being in a cabin when it was cool and rainy and that has been the weather here this week.
Not much was accomplished at the lake but I did hang some bookshelves and brought up some history to read when I forget to bring other stuff along. We are painting the inside of the cabin and the rule is that one wall has to be painted per trip and I did accomplish that.
Where I am at the moment: At the time of publication I am probably sleeping in Saskatoon. We came home early as Oliver wasn’t feeling very well at all.
On my to-do list this week: I am on vacation so I would like to say there is nothing on my to-do list but I am jack hammering out a concrete sidewalk and cleaning some gutters.
Procrastinating about: Hammering out a concrete sidewalk and cleaning some gutters.
Book I’m in the midst of: I just finished Wildfire in the Wilderness by Chris Czajkowski about her experience at Nuk Tessi (I posted about her earlier book, Diary of a Wilderness Dweller). I am also reading The Making of the Atomic Bomb by Richard Rhodes which I heard about from Kottke.org. There is a reason why the book won a Pulitzer, it is amazing.
Interesting photos that I took this week: Because I am at the lake and have to walk for a web connection (and I forgot my card reader), nothing this week. Wendy bought a new zoom lens for her SLR which she is pretty excited about so we did check out a bit of rural Saskatchewan.
Music that seemed to catch my attention this past week: The Best of Radiohead
How I’m feeling about this week: I am dreading the double election coverage of both a Canadian election and the American one. There should be an election law about this happening.
