Had a major success at work right before leaving today. It's a great way to start a weekend.

Changed the tire back to the freshly repaired one. Took all of 15 minutes; the actual jacking up of the car took something like 20 seconds with the hydraulic jack, swapping the wheels took less than a minute, and the lowering of the vehicle was nearly instantaneous. The rest was prep and cleanup.

Mowed the lawn, too. With the crap Canadian mower. 5 horsepower my ass. Grilled turkey breasts, roasted peppers and carrots on the grill, and make a garlic-leek-soy sauce, all healthy and smack.

Things with the Sasha seem to be working themselves out nicely. Not in the I'm-getting-some sense, but in the having a comfortable friendship sense. In the long term it is definitely better. In the short term, still not getting any. :)

Outside today setting up forms for pouring concrete to repair the footings for the front porch. And it's hot and sunny, and I'm a sweat-pig, so I've come in for a bit to replenish fluids and cool down afore I go to mix and pour the concrete bits.
And I have to cut away some brick so that I can fit the actual concrete block in place in a couple of spots. That should be extremely noisy and fun.
