Need more time off

Even though I just came off a couple extended holiday weekends I feel like I wish I had a few more of them to do stuff.  I just received a laser engraver and a 3D printer kit from GearBest that I would like to assemble and test out.  The items are my first free spiffs from them which are given in exchange for video reviews of the products which include linking the product on the GearBest website.  I am looking forward to digging into both and wish I could take a few days off to tinker with them.

I always have my my constant overhead of other projects circling overhead.  I also ordered a set of front brake pads for the Prius which are due for replacement.  I have done pads on a number of Toyotas but never a Prius so it should be a good learning experience and video opportunity.  If I could just find a way to swing a permanent four day work week I’d be set.

The weather this week is going to be pretty frigid by Florida standards with a forecast low possibly dipping into the upper 30’s at some point.  This isn’t a one day and done cold snap, it is forecast to be quite chilly all week long.  Hell there is even a chance for snow in northern Florida.  In the past I would put a lot of effort into trying to protect potentially cold sensitive plants in the landscape.  However in my experience, typically the effort is not worth the end result as I still had stuff die or get badly damaged after wind blew apart the insulation that was attached.

The heat was on last night and will continue to be that way as long as the forecast lows are in the 40’s or less.
