I'm a Craigslist junkie. Just picked this up. Played back in the day and wanted to try again.
It's practically new. New case and cool accessories (strap, tuner, pics, etc.)
Good sound for an entry level guitar.
Forgot it takes a bit to toughen up the olde fingertips
and dexterity not quite what it was. (lol)
Finally getting around to staining/painting the deck. (only been 3 years since I built it)
Anyway, been spending a little time (money) at the local Sherwin Williams store.
Super Deck - for the floors, stairs and landing (walked on surfaces)
Emerald - for the pickets and railings.
Between work, rain, pollen and leaves and life ... this will be one of my summer projects.
(Working 10 feet off the ground is really a P.I.A.)
Oh yeah, my gas pressure washer blew a release valve, bought this little elec. one. Nicked name it R2D2 Doesn't have all the juice of a gas (3200 p.s.i.) but it works great (2100 p.s.i.) and no more $5 gas (lol)
Oh Yeah, almost forgot the 4 gallons of RMR 86 mold remover (stuff works great though) spray it on and 10 seconds later mold is gone. And stays gone!
Some garden seeds came in the mail. Things to grow for our late summer - warm climate fall growing season.
A few varieties of micro tomatoes (cherry tomatoes on small enough plants to grow in a flower pot), lemongrass, Dragon Tongue beans (purple streaked pod beans that have a good flavor), a mini variety of sweet basil to grow in smaller pots, and White Currant tomatoes (huge sprawling plants that make thousands of tiny pea sized very pale yellow tomatoes that supposedly have a unique flavor).
A ring for my birthday. Raw citrine stone in a silver setting. The company is ana silver co on eBay. They've got silver and stone rings to a size 12, for reasonable prices. Sizing is true to size. All kinds of neat stones. Quality is hit and miss, but the listings show photos of the actual piece you're bidding on or buying, so you can see any flaws up front.
I love big stone rings, they don't have to be valuable, just interesting shapes and colors.
A new electric kettle. Our old one stopped working this morning, fortunately after it had boiled the water for our morning coffee! The new one has temperature settings and is glass walled so you can watch it boil, but unfortunately it beeps when you put it on its base, when you turn it on, when you change temperature settings .... I'll need to see if there is some way to turn that off, a lot of beeping first thing in the morning will be painful. I'm a bit worried that all the extra electronics will just make it fail faster, but we'll see in a few years I guess.
