There’s is nothing like a home repair done well to make you feel accomplished. Okay, there are lots of things that make you feel accomplished. However, since I am not a particularly handy man….or handy handyman…..whenever I get something done well and not half-assed duct tape MacGyver style well done, I feel really good.
Last night my parts from Amazon arrived and I could tackle the screen door. I really didn’t want to have to resort to Amazon. I wanted to visit my locally owned hardware store, but the truth of the matter is that they have all been forced to close. Also, I probably didn’t need to buy the whole set up, but that is what I could find online. Besides, the other one, while still functioning probably needed some TLC, rust removal and a new paint job.
The job itself was very easy, but I made sure to clean up and sand the area after filling in the old screw holes a few days ago. I really should have painted, but since the paint store is closed and the temperature is still not optimal, this will have to wait a month or more. I even read the instructions.
I got to break out my tools and apply some of my newly found patience. I feel good, and that’s what makes it Today’s Perfect Moment.
What DIY/home projects are you now tackling–assuming you have the time?
