first, my post and my comments on other blogs will be without caps because i've been typing with only my right hand. caps take two hands.
the surgery went well. it was more like a minor procedure, but it was on my hand so i was a bit uneasy.
i had a little discomfort last night, but am quite ok today. a major inconvenience is that i was told to keep it elevated above the level of my heart for 48 hours. a bother, but not hard.
craig continues to work on his latest project. replacing the wood around some of the large windows. he decided they were too deteriorated to just patch and paint. progress is slow. what looks like it should take a few days, takes a few weeks.
when craig does something he is a perfectionist. it is usually far better than a professional builder would do, but also takes much longer to finish.
he is also replacing some interior doors and many of the baseboards inside. he bought all of the wood, (for several thousand dollars) but staining and installation will probably not be done soon because he has outside work to do.
we do not always agree on what really needs to be done.
