It’s sort of been like Groundhog Day, the movie, here for me. Seems like I keep doing the same thing over and over again, with nothing much really changing.
Don’t get me wrong, I like the process of tiling, or even construction in general. It takes intellect and physical ability, plus nothing is even the same twice. At least in the construction I do.
This project is bigger than I had anticipated. I never get the time right when guessing how long it will take to do something related to construction. I’m not always guessing shorter, but usually.
I should be done with the shower today, not grouted, but all the tile set. I’ve never attached tile to a ceiling. At least big tile. This is big tile, 18 inch porcelain. Wish me luck.
This whole process makes me appreciate cycling more and more. I don’t mind the “Groundhog Day effect” when it comes to cycling. I think that is because cycling never is that repetitive, even though it seems like it is. I’ve written about this before. Cycling is attractive to me because it is always a little different, thus new.
It is super windy here in Colorado today. It started last night. Vincent lives up near the mountains, by Golden and for some reason, the wind get channeled down and just blows like crazy. It is so windy that the whole house nearly shakes. I like weather, but some much wind, at night, when I’m trying to sleep, is a little disconcerting. I remember riding Tour of Southland, on the South island of New Zealand, and the windy would be howling all night and I sort of dreaded the next day. And it really never stops there. Luckily, that isn’t the case here.
Looks like Jingle Cross was super successful again last weekend. John and the guys there do an amazing job. The race has been going on over a decade and only gets better. I’m not missing it again next year.
I went for a short hike, more like a walk with Vincent yesterday, up some singletrack, on the snow. There is no way I could be racing cyclocross, so at least I don’t have to worry about that decision.
Vincent was talking about riding fatbikes today. Not sure if that is going to happen, but I do need a little change of pace. My current pace seems to be slowing as the days go on.
