Yes, I'm aware there was a break in progress. Meet the fall semester in a household of two people who work at universities -- one of whom is actively teaching 3 different courses plus a slew of NIH DMP presentations and the other of whom is in a law program. Our priorities involve getting the cats fed and snuggled, bookshelves will eventually get sorted.
So shelving staining was completed, the piles of shelves came inside and tuckpointing on our 1920s brick building did indeed commence. The men were diligent in their labor and also in managing to make very heavy loud noises directly over my head during meetings frequently.
