Today I finally managed to do something creative.
I have actually been doing lots of creative things in bits and pieces, all the time… but I finally managed to do something and finish it all in one go. It feels good.
A long time ago I found these old wooden crate/trays in a tip shop. I grabbed them cause I knew I could use them. One day. Like everything else.
I had plans for them, but they just took up space, got moved from here to there and then to further over for quite a few months.
Over the last few months I’ve found, and collected, a couple of old shears (the ones on either side). When cleaning out some of Wayne’s old horse gear I found these very old, rusty scissors. Perfect.
I now knew exactly what to do with one of the crates.
I drilled holes in the sides, threaded wire through to hold the shears in place. I had to use wire through the back to tie the scissors in place.
I love it. I’m thinking I might use old tools in the other two and make a set to hang on a wall outside somewhere…
Things I did today:
I groomed a dog. I went to a garage sale and bought a ton of printing paper and two printers – one to replace Wayne’s busted one and one for a backup. And a matt cutter. And some almost antique thick cotton sheets. I bought fuel and I whippersnipped the entire yard.
An observation… no matter how much care you take to pooperscoop the yard before whippersnipping, there will always be some mines for you to find, which you will hit and scatter. At least the horse pooh is bigger and easier to spot. Though I think I now know what the inside of a horse tastes like. Yeech.
I’ve started a whole heap of projects. I started and finished one (above). I washed dishes.
Things I didn’t do:
I didn’t fold the washing. I didn’t cook dinner. We went out instead.
Not a bad day overall.
