I just returned from a lovely steampunk weekend at the Atlanta Steampunk Expo. It is the second year of this convention, and while it is small, it is certainly a lot of fun. I spent time with some good friends and saw some amazing creations. I just wish I had
 had more money to spend there!

Well, the past few days have been extraordinary. On Tuesday my father-in-law went to see a skin doctor about the cancer on his head. It's a long sordid tale of why the cancer has been sitting on his for more than a year and quite likely there will be legal action. But as a good friend says, "don't repaint the kitchen when the kitchen is on fire. Put the fire out first"! So happy to report that on Tuesday, every bit of cancer was removed from my father-in-law and he is CANCER FREE! Cancer has decimated my family over the past two decades so this is a big WIN.

Then Yesterday, after waiting for more than a year to receive zoning approval for converting our car port into enclosed addition we finally went before the county board and got unanimous approval to proceed. This again, has been a long sordid tale with many hiccups and false starts so finally getting the stamp of approval is a big WIN.

I am very very grateful for this week.

Went with a friend to a fabric and craft place and had a great time - the only time we stopped talking was to eat and while paying for the inordinately large amounts of material, trimmings and buttons we bought! (As if I do not have enough of these things already).  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

D'you think anyone told them those warning signs were there for a reason?

We have new tile floors! This makes me so happy because the carpet we had was old and gross, the tile is the type that looks like wood, ours is light grey. It's so much nicer than carpet!  I've been joking that I must be middle aged now because I find house renovation exciting...

I can understand this.
Bought my house 10 years ago.
Just 6 fuses.
(house is 160 m^2 plus 60 m^3 cellar).
We tore out every.single.wire. as they were too thin partly aluminum, bakelite junction boxes,....and of course nothing had been documented.
It is exciting to finish a job like this and then have everything up to date and documented.
Same for the water pipes. Copper, lead, plastic, extended and rebuilt countless times.
All pipes up to the entry point went out.
Before, the shower on the first floor did not have much pressure, now, even with a pressure-limiter installed at the entry point to the house there is plenty of pressure in this shower.
Renovation is exciting!
Sense of achievement.

Renovations in your own house is exciting! Not only does it improve your quality of life, but it also adds value to your principle asset - good all round!

I can hardly wait to be able to afford the next round, although solar power will be going up soon.

HOHOHO! I was asked to publish an article in a journal based on my report to the conference. And even pay money. A little.

After five and a half years working there, I resigned last Monday (07/01/19).  I start my new job (same general area but much more varied work and opportunities for career progression) in early February.
