The weather has turned in my area of the US and my landlord has not prepped the property for the deluge we usually get. I spent an hour this afternoon figuring out an alternative water flow for runoff that was coming into our garage and threatening to flood us out.
But that wasn’t the first of it. When I initially went into the garage it turned out that the power is busted too. I ended up running an extension from my apartment in order to power the garage door and all my tools. This is fine by me, considering I should be paying for the power usage anyway. Wrangling extension cords is not my idea of a fun time.
All kinds of little things transpired to make this a pretty miserable and grumpy experience in general… so, I’m giving up for the day.
And here are my sad sad little offerings for all that effort.
The shroom wood is reclaimed from a dead flowering tree in my backyard (don’t know what it is). The bobbin looking thing is a Wraps Per Inch gauge. WPI gauges are used to size yarn thickness by people who hand spin their own yarns.
All unfinished because I am irritable and give up for the day.
