I actually wish I had another project I could do. Health hasn't been good lately, so I'm resting the body up and getting better finally.
But yeah...from mid September until early December I worked every single day getting ready for winter because I had 2 machines that desperately needed a lot of love, and a shed that badly needed organization and repair. The repairs took time, patience and frugality but I got them finished. My body unfortunately again broke down after this work - I apparently was worn down even though I took my time to not overdo things.
Sucks getting old...
I'm "melancholy" at the moment really. Bored out my mind, but really unable to do much of anything. No storms have hit my city yet either - which has killed action on the blower I have for sale. 3 weeks listed now, 1 call on it, didn't bite. The hard part is I know it isn't over-priced compared to my area. Ariens 910965, all original, rust free, runs perfect, completely serviced, $150.
So, yet again - deprived of some sort of payoff to all my work. It's frustrating. I think a good snowstorm would help my mood tremendously.
