I have started adding trim downstairs. It's not brain surgery (or computer programming or any of those other things that requires a lot of brains and education) but there is a bit of a learning curve. Using the mitre box is taking a little practice, and I've hit the steel beams used to reinforce the basement walls a few times. But it's going up, and even doing just a few pieces at a time means the basement will be done pretty soon.|
Kiyan had his first session with the reading project. It probably resembled an alien abduction to him. "I was taken to an examination room, where I was bombarded with tests involving pictograms and the alphabet. They gave me gummy fruit candy before releasing me." He's going 3 times a week, we'll see if he gets into the groove sometime soon.
The smoked chicken got cooked a little higher than desired but came out pretty good. I need to work on my brine a touch, and watch the smoker temp more. But it's good and will supply dinner tonight and maybe tomorrow.
Now I'm going to add a few more bits of trim downstairs, and see about hanging the screen back up on the wall.
