Cool, clear, some wind… I hope. Yesterday was, with a gorgeous sky. I could use more nice days, without the freezing howling wind.
Did some stuff during the day, but mostly auction shopping for the <s>new house</s> BOL. Then ran a couple of errands, swung by the storage unit, and got ready for today.
Pickup and drop off today, with a visit to my secondary. Then daddy and D2 will do some projects or play chess… and dinner, etc.
I feel more sense of accomplishment when I don’t list all the things I am not going to get done. Funny that.
Getting to be time for some planting. Officially, we could still get a frost, but it doesn’t feel like it this year. I need a plan for home and for the BOL. We’re still a week or more from signing, but there’s a lot to do and I’d hate to miss a planting because I didn’t do the planning. I’m bidding on another of the seed displays too. Isn’t it Alas Babylon that the lady decides to store seed packets as light and cheap trade goods?
Needles and thread might be a good choice too. The old treadle powered sewing machines are going for crazy money in the estate auctions. Hundreds of dollars if they are in good shape and running. Electric ones, unless they are brand new and feature rich, are going for $20-50 for the most part. Older Kenmores are solid machines and can be had cheaply. If you don’t have a sewing machine, I’d recommend getting a used one, and a basic book on sewing, and use it. Since the crowd here is mostly men, use it to do some masculine stuff, like making your own web gear, or covering some old furniture… or make a shop apron. Or doll clothes for the kid. Think of it as just another power tool to learn and use.
Stack some tools and the knowledge to use them. Stack the stuff needed too.
(and get something nice for your spouse. you need the support and help.)
