Winter projects


Adventures of Old Nebraska Dave 

Gardening is over for this year, Christmas cards have been sent, shopping for gifts has been completed, and decorations have been carefully put in place with care. Now begins the winter projects.  The ones that have been literally piling up over the summer.  Those things that I was always going to get around to doing but just never quite had the time to do.

Clothes 2017a

Like all those clothes from the laundry room that need sorting. It's just not one of those tasks that I love to do. It's a necessary responsibility, but even the low priority to-do things get to a point where they can not be put off any longer.  Well, I guess this is at that point.

Ceiling Drain

Yeah, like that hole in the ceiling from emergency plumbing repair. This time, yes there have been other times, I am going to come up with a removable cover for easier access to the plumbing instead of just covering the ceiling with drywall.

FaithfulHomesteader, yeees, have I started with Winter projects? I thought about it. Does that count? Well, I have accomplished a couple plumbing things which are not my favorite things. One turned out to be easy the other not so much. I did get the pile of clothes washed but now I have to get them folded and put away. I did get a desktop cleared off and that looks nice. So I guess I did get some things done. ***** Have a great day and only 130 days left until the last frost day for my area. Not that I'm counting or anything. ***** Nebraska Dave

I hope you had a good holiday season. When we were dripping our faucets because of several days of freezing weather, we discovered a leak with my shower. I don't look forward to dealing with that. I have a room that I always just shove things into, but I would like to do something nice with it. I hope you have a productive time with your projects.

Mel, yes, there's always tomorrow. You made me smile. Some times I just have to grit (no pun intended) my teeth and start a project. I some times trick myself by saying, "I'll just do this one little thing. Then I can quit." What happens is when I get started I just keep going and to my surprise much more gets done than expected. I too always have good intentions but some how can be easily distracted until, "Oh, well, just not enough time for that today." ***** Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. ***** Nebraska Dave
