like busy is a virtue

Toronto, 2017.07.25

The job's already gotten busy enough that I'm already pining for the days this Spring when I wasn't working. I'm not one of those people who thinks that being busy is a virtue, but as the family's sole earner, the show must eternally go on.

And on and on it does go. The bike's showing its age. I'm assembling a new drive train for my bike in fits and starts. I have the cassette, I've ordered the chain, and I'll visit a shop to place an order on the chain rings this evening. All in, about $200.

Three reasons to be thankful:

  1. I've got a decent job, if only on a contract basis.
  2. Busy is certainly better than the alternative, job or not.
  3. The job will pay for the drive train, and the contract nature of the gig means I can claim such things as "vehicle repairs" since I'm using the bike daily to get to the client site.

I'm pleased and happy to repeat the news that we have, in fact, caught and killed a large predator that supposedly injured some bathers. But, as you see, it's a beautiful day, the beaches are open and people are having a wonderful time.
