I’ve been motivated. We have a lot of projects on this property. Some are started, some almost done, a few waiting parts, and many are just parts waiting for the right project. In short, a lot of stuff. So, I’ve been looking at the stuff and assessing, slowly, if it needs to stay, or needs to go. Most I just pass over, but we’ve had success.
A box of AD&D stuff has left, via ebay, to more welcoming hands. Don’t know why I held on to it for these 30 years, and don’t care to find out. Computer parts are hitting the ether too, slowly, but the big win is the stuff I’ve been making in the shop. First, let’s talk about the shop. In fact, it is the garage, which is attached to the house. It’s the only place in the house for loose storage. We have no attic. No basement. We have the garage.
So, working in the shop has always been a test of patience. The work spaces are the tops of the two chest freezers, which really should be kept clear for easy access to food. Even I agree with that. So it’s a constant ebb and flow of work, with projects gaining and losing importance, they flow from freezer top to floor pile and back again. Occasionally, something succeeds and manages to emerge, complete, from the garage.
Without being crass, those things, if I feel like I enjoyed the process, appear in our Etsy shop. So far it has been surprisingly successful. Not independently rich successful, but that isn’t really the goal. I’ve not yet figured out the goal, but at this point I’m happy having some outlet for my artistic talent.
All that said, I’m off to my shop, well past Urgent Care hours, to clean up in preparation for some project. Whether it is starting one, working on one, or finishing one, it will be satisfying.
The title? Well, any blogger worth their salt has a post history littered with draft posts which were started but never finished. I bet you can guess if I have a similar pattern.
