Anticipation



The family is still waiting for my daughter to have her baby. It looked like she would have the baby early, but now the baby is late. Of course, babies have their own clocks. My lovely wife and I haven't gone too far in case we'd be needed. In fact, my lovely wife has been spending a lot of nights at my daughter's apartment. I've been going home at night to take care of the dog and to keep the home fires burning.

A sudden cold snap has put my outdoor projects on hold. Some nights are getting down into the single digits again.

With the cold snap my thoughts have turned to boats and warmer climes. I am moving forward with my little sailboat project. Epoxy resin is on order. Boat plans are spread out all over the kitchen table. The building supply store is some distance away, so that's being put off until after the baby arrives.

So right now I'm not doing a whole heck of a lot. Waiting is a bit of a chore. All things come in their own time.

    1. Of course, because her hospital is on the other side of the White Mountains. I already had an interesting drive through the ice and snow when she had a false start.

    1. The joke is that first babies can come much sooner. All the others take nine months.

  4. Babies come when they do. Having You and the wife available will help the new mom cope during the wait.
    On another tack, Whats your pref's for epoxy and glass cloth suppliers. There aren't that many around here. I gotta go with an online purchase.

    1. At least her husband will be in the US by May.

      I tried a new company for the epoxy:

      I'm working in cool damp conditions so I'm springing for a non blushing resin and a quick hardener.

      In the past I've used West System and had good results, but I'm trying to cut down on sanding.

      I've cloth, and fillers left over from other projects, so I'm not buying any of that new.
