wandering wacko

My mind wanders. Over the last few weeks I have built a workbench, two small robots that don't work that well, I have contemplated starting a lamp repair business, I tried to build a small japanese style lamp, worked on repairing some broken chairs, made some shelves for our small apartment kitchen, cleaned, thought about growing mushrooms, almost built a grow light apparatus, worked on some music, and now I'm going to make some small alcohol stoves for backpacking.

My mind never quits. It drives me crazy sometimes, and today I realized that I am happy that I found permaculture because otherwise I would be all over the place. Luckily, the permaculture principles and ideas ground my higher flights of fancy and give me a focus for my creativity and work.

Today I waited in a car jam for about an hour at the Mall of America to recycle an old TV for free.

I was wondering how busy it would be down there. At least it was free!

Looks like you posted this piece 3 times. Was that intentional?

I understand about getting swept up in a projects that your mind enjoys exploring. It is cool you are making use of your basement space too. Perhaps utilizing additional space in your home comes with the increasing feeling of confinement as the weather in Minnesota turns colder.

Know where I can find any scrap wood?
