However, we are now under the threat of Tropical Storm Sandy . . .
I had a few important errands to get done - drag the generator on the porch, fill the gas cans, put in a sump pump (I was going to do it in November), put away any loose items by the creek (in case it floods), etc.. I got them done.
Still, I had time to enjoy the weekend. I raked some leaves to top off the compost bins. I noted the tamaracks are changing.
The pots are put away - waiting for next year.
I did find time to work on a few projects in the workshop . . .
I made a tool rest for the 'new' old Niagara bench grinder . . .

The new slides fit fine. It is easy to pull on the leather straps to get the slides out . . .
. . . and then you have two leaves for mounting vises.
I also cleaned up an old hand auger. Sharpened the bit and gave it a fine coat of oil.
I have a few fruit cakes in the oven. They will need to be dipped in liquor (I use Grand Marnier) and age for at least a month.
Yep, I has been a relaxing weekend!
