2020 is just around the corner, and you can order your calendar today! These calendars are 8.5×11, and are filled with bird sketches and some of my favorite quotes! All pages are sturdy cardstock, with black wire binding and a hole for hanging.
I’ve also made a matching journal, 5.5×8.5. This has pages that are lined, dotted or filled with grids for you to personalize and use to doodle or write in. Carry it with you to have it handy for those moments of inspiration! The front and back covers are sturdy cardstock, with black wire binding.
Both come with a robust black wire binding and both are $12 each. Let me know how many you want!
We finished laying the 1/2” polyiso, after taping the edges with house wrap tape, and then fastening 3/4” plywood over it. Finding the existing bolt holes was a little tricky, but thanks to neighbor Jim, they are all in place. A couple of the holes do need to be re-threaded, that’s how they came from the factory, as the original bolts were shorter, so they worked okay. We’re using longer ones to attach the plywood and include the polyiso depth. You can barely see the polyiso in this shot, but it’s all there!

Flooring is down!
I also got Reflectix, some heavy grey fabric on sale, and fitted them to the door windows. Spray-glued them together, then finished off the edges with grey duct tape. They friction fit right into the openings, but I got several heavy duty small magnets that can be added if needed.
I tried a narrower black duck tape first, but changed it to a wider grey one after
Finished window covers!
We then brought the van to Elmira, where a relative with a large garage can take care of installing the Maxxfan, Mach 8 air conditioner with heat element, solar racks and panels and an opening window on the side. We hope to be able to help with it, and get some pics along the way. So the driveway will be empty for a while.
Hoping the next post will have lots of good updates to share!
Blues on the Bridge is a day of free outdoor concerts, with food trucks and vendors in downtown Binghamton. This was my first year going, and I brought my sketchbook to give the Skirmisher statue another try.
I wasn’t happy with the first attempt, here:
But after walking around a bit, and running into a few family and friends, I sat for another try. Pretty happy with this one, especially as I just put ink to paper, no pencil outline first. Calling it a day!
