Even embarked on the completely ridiculous and overwhelming task of replacing the basement windows, something that has truly needed to be done since the day we moved in, and the condition of which hit critical when one of the water heaters, on the way out the window, took a chunk of window with it. No surprise. The surprise was that THIS time, when I went to the Home Depot, I was able to find a space on the shelf where a nearly correct-sized window was supposed to be. Scouted another HD not far away, and found precisely the windows I needed. Patched some masonry issues in one of them during a break in the rain on Sunday (a very short break, followed by a continuous downpour), framed the window and popped it in last night with a minimum of issues, and voila! -- it looks amazing. The stunning newness of the white vinyl window is so overwhelming that you hardly even notice the crumbling masonry! And, the masonry is next on the list. Going to ring the house with belgian pavers to cut down the water infiltration to the basement, and apply some sand mix to reface the block, and things should be like new, or at least like less than 74 years old.
No athletic activity of any kind all weekend, owing to the rain. Hannah had wanted to scout the Freihofer's course, but we didn't get to to do that. She'll be fine. Maybe we can do that at the packet pickup on Friday. I trained for my bike ride in no way whatsoever, unless lifting things beyond my physical capacity can be considered training.
