It is still winter here, and it will be cold for another month, I deliberately kept things low key for the last two challenges, and as much as I want to explode and do awesome things I know me and winter do not play nicely together. So I am going to keep my head down for the next challenge and do small things.

 

I am not going to do a normal challenge, but are going to concentrate on time management and bookending my day properly. Playing around online before work like now is not a good thing.

What do you mean by boundaries on your checklist?

 

Part of my daily routine is to walk along the boundaries of the workshop's premises to see if the security is fine and everything looks ok. It doesn't take long and it gives some peace of mind. If I don't do it there are spots I do not see in weeks.

 

Very busy day today, I didn't get time for knives. (True, but bugger)

 

Things to add to my list. Exercise, Reaching out.

 

Suddenly I've got plans for Saturday.

 

1+1 is verrry, verrrry difficult.

but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

Subbed!  Also, writing down what you want to do online before you open the browser is BRILLIANT.  I may definitely need to steal that.

Speaking of stealing, I misinterpreted your explanation of the perimeter check and think it's an awesome idea to deal with invisible clutter.  Go around the space and specifically "see" what's there so it doesn't turn invisible.

 

I could not even imagine sitting down and just reading one webpage.  You're a trooper for managing it at all.

I have conditions that affect my social awareness.  If I am rude, tell me what I could do better.

It is a fabulous idea. I really should start doing it myself.

 

Took lots of walkies with the black dog today. Spend most of the afternoon trying not to cry and not always managing it. This evening ended up with much too much time playing freecell, which explains why I am sitting here in my work clothes at 10 o'clock at night.

 

Feel crap and tired.

 

Note: Add gratitude to my list.

Started the grinding process. There are lots of debate under knifemakers if the hardening should be first and then the grinding or the other way around. I am doing the grinding first. I've got exactly one spare belt, and I do not want to use it on hardened steel.

 

So I started, tried a bit, got out the book , read a bit and restarted. Still a long way to go, hollow grinding is not part of my skills yet.

 

Time for today 1:30, total time 10:45

And since we were busy taking pictures. That jersey was comfortable when I weighed 120kg. It is very oversized now, and 20 years old.

You look good. Your smiling practice is paying off.

Hear hear!

 

 

Hear Hear, Too! Mooi so Jakkals! I love those knives in the making. Hubby has a little kit that you have to set the angles for the cutting edges to sharpen, but of course he doesn't make knives like you do. The boys are asking for toy metal swords :nightmare: ... Sometime in the future, when they won't accidentally hurt each other I will have to come knocking on your door for hand-crafted weapons.

I just devoured your old thread and am looking forward to seeing where this one here is going. 

 

Is your checklist something you plan on doing every day, or is it more of a guideline?

THIS.  This is fantastic!  As everyone has said, the smiling practice is really paying off.  And everyone needs a few comfy oversized sweaters!  Great to see the Wizard Blacksmith in his natural habitat...

Will do a proper update tomorrow.  I woke up this morning at 3 feeling awful, and spend most of the day in bed. A slight headache but mostly fever. I did manage to have a decent sleep this afternoon, after taking Vonk for a walk. He was very patient today but half past two he came and sit on my chest and licked my face.

 

I've got the idea that yesterday's depression was a starter for today's illness.

Hope you have a speedy recovery!

 

Stopped by to let you know - oh Wizardly, Warrior Blacksmith - that the Renaissance Rebels are back! Spread the word...

 

And I agree with everyone else. You have a great smile!

Child-proof swords. That will be some challenge.

I am already doing most of it every day, I am just trying to get some more stuff squeezed in. But ideally I want to do all of it every day. No rest for the wicked.

I just need a good voice over narrator and we could make a documentary.

And I spend the whole day at work wishing I wasn't there. 

 

There are no pills for stupidity, this was because I had to. Things have to change, I just do not know how to change/implement things. It is on days like this that the loneliness is killing me.

 

I once watched a TED talk on business development, and the guy said that at workshops they had people count the words "I"  and "we" in the first few pages of Richard Branson's autobiography. And he never use the word "I".

Some grinding late afternoon today. Things went really well, I was worried when I started, but I put on a new grinding belt. "Use abrasives as if someone else is paying for it."

 

This is a preliminary hollow grind on a 200mm wheel, 60# belt.

 

Ready now to start heat treatment.

 

Time today 30 minutes, total time 11:15

And my mother had this cheap fish knife she picked up on the beach on holiday 10 years ago, and it's plastic handle finally broke, so I made a new handle. Rosewood with stainless and mosaic pins. Rough and quick on the machines, no fancy finishing.

Beautiful knives.

The only thing I know about owning a business is that I don't want the headaches. My previous X-ray job was with a small company and sometimes when I was on call boss would let sleep in his basement/office. He or his wife would have to sneak in in the middle of the night to restart the main server and all kinds of other stuff. How many people can say they saw their boss in his undies at 2 am? (in a non sexual way, thank you.) On the fun side, I scared the be-jeebers out of Mrs. boss one night when he hadn't told her I was there. The two of them got very little sleep.

Hope you get this figured out. Best of luck to you.
