February 4

Thursday, February 4 — In at 9:20, sunny, chilly, calm. Sorted things, took things upstairs and sorted in the Intake Rm., turned on the heater there because I’ll be back this afternoon. Met some nice people about to enter a meeting in the meeting room. They say they will be back so I’m here in the office with the door OPEN, wide awake and glancing up and out into the hall. I don’t expect anyone will walk into the WELCOME Room and steal anything while I’m here, but you never know. Yesterday I didn’t expect anyone to walk into this room and steal anything when I was outside 150 feet from here! Resumed 2015 blog revising. Worked four hours upstairs. Discovered that some visitors who breeze in and share excellent conversation but leave when their meeting is about to start and promise to return . . . . DON’T. I delayed lunch for 45 minutes until people started trooping into the lobby from the meeting room down the hall and no one bothered to return. I did have a nice conversation with a father and son from Marathon, Florida. They flew up to have their Cherokee Six prepared for sale through Horizon Aviation. They enjoyed seeing AKM’s 1/72 scale Six on the shelf here. Back upstairs and more filing, tweaking the arrangement, making it better and feeling good about that. Spent most of the afternoon FINISHING my re-formatted blog project. HUZZAH HUZZAH! FINISHED SOMETHING. I’m having unhappy thoughts about why I seem to be avoiding the model workshop. Most folks would think I’m nuts for NOT spending more time having fun building and finishing models. AAAAND I’m still way behind with the next Lincoln Flyer newsletter which I truly INTENDED to distribute before last Christmas. I’m chafing and chomping at the  bit over these things, smothering myself in regret and discontent . . . . and I don’t know why. Spent a lot of the evening on Facebook browsing a friend’s recently-posted series of 325 airplane pictures, including some excellent work. Finally headed for home at 9:15, satisfied with the day. Day rating: B+
