Day 3 Sabbatical, Part Deux

A relaxed start to day 3. I had some errands to do, volleyball practice, and still find time to accomplish something. First though, homemade hash browns for my daughter. I was hoping for eggs, but there weren’t any.


I decided to do some lessons first. I’d left the easy song lesson up on my computer, so I did the Linkin Park-esque song. If you’re interested, it’s a rock-y, Em, G, C, D progression. Very common, but working with some rhythm, I can hear a bit of Linkin Park in there.

Next, I started the beginner course. It’s below me, I’m more of a hack, advanced beginner, but I decided to see if I missed anything over the years. This basic, Em, Asus2 chords, adding in a D and working strumming, which is good to practice. I did two of these.

Slow, but as I listened to basic chord structure, I practiced some “I Walk the Line” by myself.

I also jumped around, starting a blues series.

Not very organized, but I’m trying to just work through different things.


I’ve been building a loafing shed for the horses. I actually did this last summer, and I covered the roof, but with some cash flow struggles, I didn’t get the sides done. I ordered metal last week and it’s done today, so I had to go pick it up. The sheets are 5-10ft long, so I took the horse trailer.

Two and a half hours to get the metal back to the house. Not a lot of fun, but I needed to get this done.

I was hoping to actually start to put some up, but it was too windy outside. Handling 3×8 sheets of metal isn’t a good idea in the wind. Since wind is supposed to go until Saturday, this project is on hold.


Wednesdays are practice days for volleyball, so my normal routine takes over here. I got on the stationary bike for a bit of exercise and thought about practice a bit. After 30 minutes, I then sat down and wrote out a practice plan. These plans don’t always survive, but they give some focus to what I’m trying to do.

Today is the early practice, so I left with my wife and went to coach. The 12s coach was sick, so I spent half the practice working with them while my wife worked our team. Then a scrimmage, which didn’t go great, but it’s a learning experience.

Afterwards, my wife and I decided on dinner at a local brew house. We don’t really need the coaching pay, so we’re using it to enjoy some nights out, and Wednesday usually is one.

Not a lot accomplished, but setting the base for a few things.
