I belong to a cool nonprofit that is a community of makers. Last year, we bought an old elementary school as our new building. There was a lot of work to be done. We have some bumps in the road because of COVID-19 and cash flow, but we are making lots of progress.

So during the quarantine, my sister and my mom have been playing a game of spite and malice every day.
A couple of mo this ago we added a Sunday game of Rummikub. Rummikub is a family favorite. During a Rummikub game, one of my favorite family phrases was introduced.
When you are trying to make a move and need to move tiles, but ultimately you cannot, it is “Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic” or just “rearranging the deck chairs.”
But in any case, we each have a Rummikub app, and call each other on FaceTime.
It provides a good chance to catch up with each other and the rest of the family.
The 7 ½ deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. An interesting premise. Guy wakes up with no memory, and must solve a murder. Eight times. Each one the same day. Sort of a murder mystery plus Groundhog Day. Interesting premise, but it sort of falls apart at the end.
If you recall, we bought some lockers at MakeICT a few months ago. Many things came up and they sat unfinished by the Quonset Hut.
We have a few more to finish. We start with one like this.
Then the Husband grinds off the rust and paint.
Once the metal is cleaned up, we paint. The Husband’s first is blue for dangerous chemicals. Mine will be red and used for egg/honey sales materials.
Here is the final blue one.
In our messy, messy Quonset hut.
Also, how cute is our pupper?
