As a follow up from Saturday’s post, I had anticipated a deep cleaning of the bathroom. I am pleased to say, mostly because I needed to report back here, that did get done. In doing it, I ended up giving Mr. Ink a bunch more to do. First, the showerhead hasn’t been running particularly well. I asked him if it could be fixed. He tried. It could not. So, we need to get a new one. Then I asked him when the furnace filter had last been replaced. He told me “spring.” I said “It IS spring and I KNOW you didn’t just change it, do you mean LAST SPRING?!?!” He said, “let’s go down stairs and take a look at it.” We did so, and turns out it probably has actually been a year. In going downstairs to investigate the furnace filter, I noticed some leaking water. That turned out to be a leaky faucet on the hot water heater.
Funny part was, I’d just asked Mr. Ink if he needed to go to the hardware store, and he’d told me that he did not. But as it turns out, he did need to go, he just didn’t know it yet.
That leads me to this week’s list.
- Don’t work on off hours.
- Bake 2 loaves of banana bread to freeze and one loaf of regular bread.
- Go to the hardware store, get paint for interior.
- Start painting! (I took Tuesday off to get a solid head start on the project.)
- Make more dog treats.
- Find yarn and a pattern for a new knitting project.
- Finish spinning singles on current handspun project. Begin plying.
I feel like this is a fairly sufficient list. Since we are painting 3-4 rooms plus the hall, I don’t think loading up the list with a bunch of other busy work makes much sense. Should be a good week!
And why do I need to find another project? Because I finished the largest Lintilla shawl I’ve ever made.
I prolonged this project just as long as I possibly could. I just didn’t want to finish, it was such an enjoyable knit. And that’s why I chose it, I knew it would be! Plus, I didn’t feel like trying to figure out what to knit next, nor did I feel like trying to figure out how to knit whatever pattern I chose. I am hoping I can come up with something that is as enjoyable as this over the next week.
