Today is the day my new roto-tiller arrives, and the Stucco-man gets to work finishing the outside of our home. My new workshop and my new lawn are taking shape, too. If only the little woman would stop giving me ToDo lists of errands, I might actually accomplish something in the near future.
My last accomplishment was fabricating a custom-built steel channel to reinforce a loose Newell post. Being a welder really helps when you have to make something strong and compact. Having the drill-press finally installed helped, too. I have yet to repair an old watering hose for the yard and she wants me to do errands fixing the old homestead as well… Yesterday, I was spraying dandelions on both properties. I also repaired the old mower to mow the old property. Then there’s fertilizer for both properties. The list keeps growing.
I look forward to the day when things are actually as they should be and I can get on with my life instead of doing things elsewhere. Isn’t that what retirement is supposed to be about?
