I'm currently employing one of my favorite tactics to fix something... do something else and hope it fixes itself. Since I don't expect that will work, I'll tell you what it is near the end of this post.
The weather has been cold this weekend, so I've been trying to finish inside projects preparing for next weekend when I'll start some outside projects. I'm going to have 5 yards of dirt delivered during the week - the weather will be great next weekend, and I'll have the perfect chance to fill the raised beds. I'm looking forward to it already. Really.
Then I installed the innards of a $9.72 fluorescent light fixture from Lowe's into the second old metal thing, and now I have two working grow lights. I put the tools away like any neat person would, and took a picture to prove that it looks better now than the other day.
I started to wash the butter churn to get ready for another try at making butter and ... realized that the kitchen sink is stopped up. I tried Drano. I tried my little drain cleaner snake thingy. Neither worked. I think I'm going to have to get down there, disassemble some things and try the real peoples' snake. It's gonna be dirty and not-fun. Which is why I'm sitting here writing a blog post and hoping it fixes itself!
I have a project planned for April/May timeframe, to replace the kitchen sink, counter, stove, cabinets and shelves, pretty much everything except the floor. I'll get a chance to get back to the walls, fill mouse holes and put up some insulation, as well as make storage areas that are actually usable. I expect to be without a functioning kitchen sink then, for up to a few weeks. Looks like I can practice living without a sink early! If I don't get the drain cleaned out, that is.
Edit: Wishin' and hopin' worked! The sink is usable without snaking - for now.
