I learned a better way to install the bow eye on TARDIS from Charlie Jones. This morning, this was my task. Getting to the stem from the inside is possible, but cramped. First, a pilot hole was drilled, then a 7/16 inch holes was drilled for a few inches from the outside. Then, a hole big enough for the nut was drilled from the inside, deep enough for the nut to fit onto the threads. Epoxy was then squirted in the hole from both ends. That bow eye is not coming out.
This afternoon, I had planned to go to the shop and work. But, I was on a roll with the packing and cleaning, I decided to take the day off. About 3 o'clock, I remember that I was going to pay my slip rent today and look more closely at Waterford Harbor. So, I threw on a sundress and headed to Waterford. My favorite place will be the pool, I can already tell! I sat with my feet in the water and talked on the phone with my son that moved to California. It was so peaceful...I needed that.
Now, I'm back home. When I walked through the front door, into the empty living room... I heard echos. So empty, can't wait to be out of here. Only two more nights here, and then I'm out of Pasadena.... forever! Don't get me wrong, Pasadena is not a bad place to live, but I got tired of the drive to work everyday, and all my friends live in the Clear Lake area. My time here, the past year has been a time of healing, reflection, learning who I really am, what I want out of life, what I need... it has been good. But it is time to move on. I feel I am coming out the other side of a tunnel, and starting a new life. Out with the old, and in with the new. I have found many wonderful friends, and I love them all. More content with who I am, more confident in myself, and happier than I have ever been. Life is good!
The other day, I got this in my fortune cookie. I think it was meant for me!
A bold and dashing adventure is in your future within the year.
