386. E-Mail Clean-out

I have 2,400 emails dating back to 2013 in one of my frequently used accounts and 3,700 emails dating back to 2008 in my other account. Most of the more recent items are junk mail of one sort or another.

As part of trying to resurrect my “online life,” I think I shall try to clean up and catch up with my email accounts.

While going through my earlier emails, I found a “note to self” about a blog that looked interesting to me… back in 2013: The Light and Wheels Blog. It’s kind of like my blog here, in that it’s about cycling and other things. Of course, cycling is pretty much only a title that I haven’t bothered to change here at my blog, but, yeah.

398. Last Day of Summer

Tomorrow is the astronomical midpoint between the Northern Hemisphere Summer Solstice and the Northern Hemisphere Autumn Equinox.

400. What Happened With the “100 Days of Awesome” Thing?

I wrapped up the “100 Days of Awesome” timeline back in April. What I didn’t wrap up were any of the projects I had intended to complete in that time. It took until mid-June to get the “Gallery Yurt” ready to rent.

Actually, it’s not done yet. There are several more things I need to complete: awnings over the windows; a loft area that includes a railing, flooring, carpeting, wiring, and a ladder; weather-resistant outdoor electrical outlets; and a few more tweaks to the drain system. But for the moment, it is “rentable” in a minimalistic sort of way.

You can see it at: Bryce Canyon Deluxe Private Yurt

As for the other things on that list, I didn’t finish any of them.

401. Four Hundred Days

Four-hundred one days remaining in my “1000 Days” Project.

My, how the first six-hundred days have flown!

My, how little I have accomplished!

My, how many times I have forgotten about this blog, which was intended to be a productivity tool.

I guess the only tool here is me.

Anyway, I did the math. Four-hundred one days remaining.

Unknown Number: Quick Update

Oh yeah, this blog!

Paid off an outstanding loan balance yesterday! Woo hoo!

I’ll get my “count” up to date and write more here later. Gotta get some vacay rental cleaning out of the way first. That’s what pays the bills these days.
