      Sitting in my recliner enjoying the feeling of being warmer, all the while listening to my furnace not running to achieve it.

      If it stays warm tomorrow I get to play with outside mortar. That should be fun. I'll have my ladder ready, now I can get it past where the bags of rubble used to be.

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      Took a meal around to a couple of friends of ours. They just had a baby last week, so a few of us are taking turns to take them meals. It's not a big deal for us, and it's one less thing for the new parents to have to worry about.

      We used to do that for new parents at my previous church as well. It seems like a nice thing to do. The parents seem to really appreciate it.

      I'm on Chapter 14 of The Expanding Blaze, by Jonathan Israel. I'm completely jaded with what I've learned about the Revolutionary War and the motives of our Founding Fathers.

      Taking a total day of rest from the renovation. I didn't even take a thermal image this morning. I went to the church to fix an issue with the computer, then ran some errands with my wife, now sitting relaxing. Got a friend coming around this evening, so not relaxing too long as we need to tidy the place up a little.

      Wow. I can imagine that.

      Back to the renovation, at least for a small part. It warmed up enough to do outside mortar but sadly the rain means it's a complete waste of time to be doing it. So I took the opportunity presented by a break in the rain to play Fun With Angle Grinders. I'd never used an angle grinder before and was impressed at just how easily it cut through a concrete block. I need to cut the block into strips about an inch wide, so I can fill some of the larger gaps in the inner face of my wall. I have no idea why the builder of the house would have left such large gaps there, but they need to be filled in if I'm to have any chance of keeping the place warm without paying a fortune to do it.

      So now I've got a bunch of strips of concrete about eight inches long and between 1-3" wide. I also learned that I need to use the angle grinder somewhere the rain will wash away the dust.... wow, the dust....

      Finished my second week at my new job today. I have met about 16 clients so far in the three days.

      Got all the concrete dust off me, got cleaned up, and had dinner with a couple of friends. It's been a while since we caught up with them, and a good time was had by all. I particularly like talking with him - his attitude towards life is very much one of "how can I make this work?" which is a refreshing change from another guy I know whose standard approach is to think of a reason why he can't do stuff.

      Timber!!

      One tree is nearly felled. I put my back out when I started some days ago and had to recoup. An axe and large hard swings don't seem to agree with me very well. Anyhoo - the tree was a large type with multiple thick branches stemming from stump, and I'm managing to get most of it with a hand saw. Atm taking a breather and drinking a kale drink for the green energy. Two more large branches to go, then I have to cut them up into a few pieces each in order to fit them into a rent-a-bin.

      Do you have anyone nearby who burns wood for fuel? Some years ago I cut down a couple of trees in my back yard (big conifer-type trees). The greenery went through a garden shredder and off to the landfill in a mountain of plastic bags, the bigger branches and trunks went to a neighbor who dried them out and burned them for heat. It was a win-win - he got some free fuel and it saved me the headache of trying to cut them into pieces I could carry out to the car and haul them to the landfill.
