What Joy! I have more writing gigs and more food coming in!

May 26th, 2014 at 12:02 pm

I have 5 writing gigs already this week and ebay may turn out to be a life saver for this week. My writing gigs are about family things which I love doing. We are selling a tiller someone gave my husband. It wasn't working when it came here, but in 5 minutes he had it fixed up. Then he started it up and tilled my garden beds.

That is the tiller. We put it up for $42 on ebay about 2 days ago. It is now at $98. My husband is really good at fixing things, but he never got certified. He just tinkers with things until they work. He likes it. It is like a puzzle that his mind enjoys solving. Anyway, he said this was an easier problem to solve. We told the person that gave it to us that is was fixed, but they said we could keep it anyway. They had bought a new tiller already. She also gave us another, larger tiller that my husband believes he can fix with a couple bucks.

My sun chokes are already bushing. I planted them by the house this year, but the old patch is still going strong. I must have missed a few! They are growing like weeds and thank heavens too! The ones that we replanted near the house have not grown at all. I have no idea why. Here is a pretty picture of them.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

    Wish you and your handy husband lived nearby...we could use some tinkering on a lawn mower!

    Glad you have some good stuff happening.

    rob62521 he loves to tinker with tools. I told him he should do it for a living! LOL.

    Nice turn around of cash for something you received for free!

    Several years ago we had a guy in our neighbourhood who earned a fair bit of money operating a small fix-it in his garage. It was such a jewel and we all understood when he explained some items are not fixable and others have no parts. DH could run an ad on CraigsList to see response.

    My Mom says you can never get rid of sunchokes if you want to. I've been thinking of setting some Jerusalem artichokes, as I call them, loose on the lots I lease from the city. Not this year, though.
