Happy that August is here – which means sharing the good news we are officially moved out of our storage space and have all our equipment and tools here at the workshop – Blue Caboose Station. It is a huge relief and major stress reducer now that we can concentrate on setting up shop. This does not happen overnight, as with any short term goals, we find it useful to make a list of 3-5 things we want to accomplish in the week – and if we don’t do them all, they overflow to the next week. I have to say, I used my garmin the other day and in a day I walked 7 miles – just with moving items, going up and down stairs, bathroom breaks to the house, and then back again. Feels good to be doing exercise while doing other things I love all at the same time. Finding that happy medium – it’s great. End of the day, my feet are tired.
This past week we cleaned the front of the station – making several trips to the recycling landfill, we listed items on Market Place and got ahead with Ebay and Etsy listings. We found new homes for some of our unique items and researched others that will be for sale soon.
So our goals for the month, Bruce continues working on the Argosy, has sandblasting coming up for a friends pick up truck, he is designing some custom coffee tables and I have pulled three trunks I want to finish in the next two weeks. Landscaping and working on the rock walls is also slated for this month. We are getting there and it feels good – oh and baking chocolate chip cookies of course.
Have a safe and happy week everyone,
Kaye & Bruce @bluecaboosestation
