Doesn’t look like much right now
But this is my vision
My vision is being built
No. MY VISION. Who knew I’d see such things.

After weeks of pleading, Mr CM finally relented and let me unpack my most FAVOURITE closet ever! This also means we must be near to finish on inside projects. It’s not yr typical office ex-bedroom closet is it? Maybe in my glut of old age both ledgers will be filled w beautiful lenses?
Ahhh I dream of it

Temp risers on permanent stringers! I think by lunch time ladders for the guys to get on the deck will be a thing of the PAST!

this is how a Note To Self looks in my world:

Designing stringer risers based on what tools are avail to install. The drill head is the pivot point

um what?

i know exactly whats going on here. and i find it kinda amazing that in this day and age of cutting edge space travel, medicine, and electronics, building things still is kinda old school. our ideas for these stairs are AWESOME. no really. but we keep coming up against a lack of tools able to be used to install the risers as we see them.
AND i’m really enjoying the thought process that happens when we talk about ‘this is the tool we have’ Vs ‘this is the design’ and without giving up an idea we GET CREATIVE and push ourselves to still have the design using the limited tools.

and guess what? WE WORKED IT OUT. the risers might even be more beautiful then *I* had designed. my metal guy and Mr CM have taken my design and (in my eyes) made it even better!

one day i’ll show you pictures. the steel has been ordered today and if all goes well i’ll have stringers in 2 weeks. temp risers immediately after that. and towards the end of this whole thing i’ll have beautiful solid 3″ pieces wood risers seemingly floating in air.

LOVE THIS LIFE! so grateful.


Resolute.

making resolutions for me means carrying over a few of last years resolutions. my most favourite, and often easiest to accomplish is when eating out to avoid chains. basically support local, where ever i am.
i try to do this in my shopping too, but i fail. miserably. i do kinda absolutely shine when it comes to keeping strong about eating at local small places. BUT! last night i found out some interesting things about Claim Jumpers, one of my fav out-to-eat places. we all know CJ is a chain. a chain that serves humongous plates of citrus salad! it has been on my list of Places To Avoid. and i’ll admit i failed sometimes when faced with a choice of some local unknown untested strip mall foods or CJ. i’ve been known to go to CJ. it’s true. i lose my resolution in the face of Claim Jumpers.
Well now i’ve got some background info that may serve us all to treat CJ as a local joint. or at least get warm fuzzies when we think of CJ. Claim Jumpers used to be owned by the Nickoloffs, Carl (dad) & Craig (son) they sold it in the late 70’s but it started in Los Alamitos. prior to that Carl ran Niks’ Coffee Shop in LB. see where i’m going…?
now some more (4th gen?) Nickoloffs run 2 local places here in San Clemente. my most fav sammich shop, Humphrys and Nicks in SC. there’s also Nicks in Laguna. whenever i wanted a good enuf deli sammich i had to drive up to Tudors in Dana Point. now a mere 1.5 miles away i have SAMMICHES at Humphrys.
i’ve never been to Nicks here on Del Mar and thats not because i didn’t know about it. i do. i’ve been told plenty how good it is. but that often comes with how crowded it ALWAYS is. i’ve been waiting to hear reports of the furor dying down, don’t suppose it will any time soon… Guess i’ll just have to bite my aversion of crowds and go check it out.

so what do you think? Claim Jumpers is back on the ‘support local’ resolution? it feels like a stretch but a logical one.

last i heard Nicks in SC doesn’t do reservations so lets queue up and go check it out for dinner tonight. i want you to be our guest so come over, k?
