A garage full of tools

Today I am grateful for a garage full of tools. Power tools, hand tools, glues, scrap lumber, hardware, paints, tapes etc., etc., etc. Normally, what you may hear me say sounds more like griping than saying thanks for all this stuff, but today reminds me why it is there. We are doing some minor home repairs and there is nothing like having the right tool for the job.

Often, as I'm working on beads, these same tools are what allows me to get the job done. Grinding high temp rods to points, drilling holes for bead holders, sawing bead supports, shaping cutters, building shelves, making drying racks etc., etc., etc....

What are you grateful for today?

I am grateful that we celebrate achievements of inspiring Americans, such as Martin Luther King.

And speaking of tools, I am grateful for the set of Lindstrom tools that my husband bought for me. They are so wonderful to work with!
