Last Week of January

Well, things have finally slowed down around here.  A little too much, maybe.  I’m feeling very bored and uncreative lately, as in I can’t think of anything good to post about.  S. paid us a visit this weekend and we had a great family dinner together.  The highlight of the last week was a bit of unplanned dumpster diving whilst walking through a new subdivision near our home where I found this cord discarded by the builders because one end was missing and the other was dangling by a wire.  Otherwise, a perfectly good commercial-grade 15 amp power cord.  I took it home and added brand new ends.  One can’t have too many commercial-grade extension cords!

Otherwise, just the usual overflowing stack of interesting, (or maybe useless, depending on your point of view) stuff I’ve stumbled across in my internet travels of late:
