So this past week has been much less busy. I didn’t babysit as much as I have been. I got into the routine of babysitting, so I had to find other stuff to fill my time.
I have been watching a lot of videos lately on spirituality and “The law of attraction.” I find it pretty fascinating and it has been helping me ignore my negative thoughts and spin them in a more positive manner.
I also made a sheath for my bushcraft knife. I am going to have to make another one, but I need to get some decent leather before I can. I need more practice with my tools before I will get an end product I really want.
I may end up building a leather specific crafting area in my work shop. A small bench or table with areas for leather specific tools. We’ll see what happens.
I also need to process some of the stuff in the freezer down there. I have several deer hides that need tanning, a skunk that needs skinning (and skull cleaned), as well as a few other odds and ends from my friend’s pet store (snakes etc.)
I am not sure if I will stick to processing dead stuff in the future. I don’t know if it is something I am genuinely interested in, or something I tried to get into to share an interest with Christine. It is pretty gruesome. Haha.
But at the same time, being able to make my own leather and hides for leather working could be really cool.
I guess I will just play it by ear.
Winston is doing well. I caught him out exploring his cage last night. I may end up getting some suction cup ledges or something so he can utilize some of the vertical space he has. Or maybe add more climbing branches or something.
Anyway, that is about it for now. I have been a lazy bum and skipped the gym the past two weeks. That ends tonight. I am heading back to start up again. I was working through some mental stuff, and with the shift in temps and season, my morale has been low. I will overcome it and continue to move forward.
There is more to life than paying bills and dying.
