Truthful Tuesday — DIY

Di, of Pensitivity101, is our host for Truthful Tuesday. This week, Di asks us:

Are you a keen DIY-er or do you prefer to get the professionals in?

I know my limitations and skill sets. So it depends upon the nature, size, and scope of the project. I enjoy DIY projects, but I also don’t want to get in over my head or end up with a crappy result. So if I feel it’s something I can do, I will do it.

That said, after what happened to me a week ago Saturday, I will get the professionals for any project requiring the use of a ladder!

Truthful Tuesday — Mission Accomplished

Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts. This week Frank wants to know…

When it comes to working on a project, what gives you the most satisfaction? Starting something new, putting time into a pet project, or finally being able to push a completed project into the “done” pile?

As a retiree, my only projects consist of doing things around the house. There’s my wife’s “honey do” list of tasks and there are my own projects that require my attention, from cleaning the gutters to washing the windows and fixing things that worked yesterday but don’t seem to be working today.

I get the most satisfaction when I can put my tools away, stand back, and admire my handiwork. Mission accomplished.
