Finally got in the workshop this weekend, did some cleanup work, and laid out some of the projects I want to get started on. Also picked a gallon of wild berries, mostly raspberries -- a friend's wife is going to make jam/jelly, and we're splitting it 50/50.

The two projects I laid out were for the kitchen knife and the Celtic sword. Both shouldn't take too long, but I've got a lot of cleanup and reorganizing to do in the workshop. Still, if I can just spend a little time each day in there, it shouldn't take too long to get to the point that I'm feeling productive again.

Otherwise, not a whole lot going on. Work is stressful, but that's just an excuse. Finally mowed the lawn at least. I'm expecting new batteries for the welding helmet soon, that should let me at least finish up a couple of repair jobs that have been kicking around for a while.

Other things I want to do: Fix up the old heat-treat oven, convert to propane and venturi burners; set up the chain hoist so I can unload heavy stuff from the truck, and set up a molding workbench so we're not working on the floor all the time.
