Desert Cat's Paradise
"The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it." - Proverbs 27:12.

I completed the third and final cabinet, and took an object lesson from this endeavor: stuff always takes longer to do than I expect. I started these damn things back in November!
"It's full of stars!"
In the garden, I excavated the second hole, adjacent to the first one, down to soft soil.
...added shredded paper and fertilizer.
Wholly Moziss, is this brutal work!
For perspective, the lush area in the foreground contrasts hard with the barren area that I'm excavating.
Elsewhere, the vetch in last year's corn is superlative!
Two feet high where it is climbing the old corn stalks, and lush.
The rarely spotted Irene consented to stand still long enough for a portrait:
A replacement belt for Li'l Kitty arrived yesterday afternoon, and today it was installed.
The old one was shredded beyond belief.
I also reinstalled the fuel pump that I had borrowed for my Mitsubishi.
Tomorrow I will lay out the parts list for an electrical sub-panel for my workshop. This is step one in getting an outlet installed to run my welder. The welder needs 50 amps at 240 volts. The first welding project will be reconfiguring the rear grader blade on Li'l Kitty. I've got the steel I need in my shopping cart at MetalsDepot.com, but I'm not ordering until I've got the welder outlet installed.
Daisycat seems to think I need to come into the city early to do some minor work at the apartment. She is so funny. She does not understand how very important my time away from the city is, and how very short the time seems even with a full weekend. No, that will not be happening. There is nothing necessary that cannot happen Monday night or later.
Next weekend my sister and her family will be here. We are going to Old Tucson on Friday and then out to a very authentic south-of-the-border style Mexican restaurant in the evening.
Update: In addition to laying out the electric sub-panel components, I got a substantial amount of cleaning and reordering done in the house today (Sunday). Tools put away and floors vacuumed before time ran out.
