For New Year's Eve, we stayed home. The most adventurous thing I did was to go bowling after breakfast on Half Price Sunday Morning at the local lanes. Lisa and I did do some additional work on the carport roof, as Lisa has fashioned some brackets to try and cut down on vibration on windy days (of which we have quite a few here). Today was a relatively balmy 11°C with little wind, so we got out the ladder and she started attaching brackets. (I'll have more to say about this when I get back to the Building the Carport series of posts.) Because of the time spent on the carport, we have not yet started unloading the pallet of fire logs we bought from Big R yesterday after we got back from Reno. We're not out of usable firewood just yet, although I've nearly finished off the last of the cordwood that we bought last year and that is stored on the "dog run" out back.
When we went to the grocery store to pick up a few things, the clerk asked if we were going out for some sort of New Year's Eve celebration. We said we were not. Having spent the last week running back and forth to Reno nearly every day fussing with the washing machine has left us a bit worn out. An early draft of our plans for this long holiday weekend had us going on a mini-vacation somewhere in northern Nevada, but we called it off and stayed home instead. That's a vacation of a sort.
