09-19-2015 Journal–Random Unimportant Acts!   Leave a comment

Today’s posting is just a little of this and a little of that, nothing earth shattering by any means.  With Fall and the holidays in my immediate future I’m just taking a few deep breaths and resting up for the on-slot to come.  I’ll need all of my energy to deal with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and everything that entails.

Topic one is the ongoing Dish Network table project.  I was able to complete the first two coats of red paint, the staining of the base, and the creation of the coax cable pieces needed to make it a little more interesting. It’s coming together fairly well with only a few minor problems that were easily dealt with.

The hard part is coming.  I finally have the finished version of the mosaic for the table top laid out but getting it installed perfectly will be a challenge. 

Topic Two is the garden cleanup.  Yesterday I removed many of the plants that have been producing for most of the Summer.  The cucumbers, zucchini’s, beans, and kohlrabi’s made their way to the compost pile.  I left the tomatoes and peppers alone for now.  In another two weeks they too will be gone.  All in all 2015 was a very productive year for us.

Topic three; After working in the garden for a while my better-half and I made a quick trip to Federal Jacks restaurant and micro-brewery in Kennebunkport. I was in dire need of seafood and a large cold glass of Goat Island Light beer. Here’s the view from the second floor dining room overlooking the harbor.

And last but not least here’s a cold glass of Goat Island Light. As I’ve stated many times before, I’m not a beer drinker.  After all these years I finally found a decent beer I can occasionally drink and enjoy.  I never thought it could happen but I’m glad it did.
