Gavin had a friend sleep over last night so I asked Dominic if he wanted to join me in the workshop for a while. I’m glad that he did!
While I was working on a bandsaw box that I hadn’t picked up on over 9 months Dominic started working on his sword. It was pretty awesome, as I set the safety on the bandsaw he told me exactly how to set it. Turns out he was paying very close attention in shop class. He went right to town and even showed me a couple of things! I’ve been pretty much self taught on using a bandsaw so it was great to learn a little new stuff from Dominic. After he’d finished cutting it out i showed him how to use a handheld router and he picked it up quick.
In a very cool way I was spending time with him and my dad at the same time, and I was thankful for every minute of it.
This evening we’re out with some friends having a lot of fun. We started the event with getting locked up in an escape room. I’m happy to say that team Technical Difficulties set the record for the fastest escape time in the room we were in. More importantly, we had a blast hanging out and figuring it out together. Now that we’ve been crowned champions we’re celebrating with nachos and drinks downtown in what will be another night of awesomeness. Speaking of which, I’ve got to get back to hanging out with my friends so I’d better wrap this up…
Another great day, another day with so much to be thankful for.
