I turned down a weekend trip to Escalante with friends because I felt like I really needed to get stuff done around the house. So I made my not-in-Escalante time count: My garage is now organized, clean, and insulated (I also washed the car, cleaned the house, cat-sitted for the friends in the desert, and made dinner both nights). Whew!

Of course, I didn’t do all this hard work alone:



I even ventured outside once. It was just a quick drive up Millcreek (not a hike) but I thought I’d better see what the mountains were doing this week:

And now, I can go to work and finally sit down.
