    Tonight after work, I went by the Toyota dealership on Alameda because the part to fix my inner door handle came in.

    In Work Day (now updated with photos), I described starting the process of fixing the busted outer handle on my truck’s driver side door. I had the new handle installed and the door almost reassembled when I broke a piece connecting the inside door handle to its actuating rod. Never fails.

    The incipience of the Handle Crisis- the broken handle exposed!

    Tonight seemed like a good night to finish projects, so I took the driver’s side door panel off, joined the inside handle to the rod with the $4 clip, carefully threaded the handle through the door panel, and reattached the panel to the door.

    And it worked.

    Outer door handle: fixed.

    On a roll, I saw the legs to the wood table I acquired from the office sitting in a wedge of space waiting to be oiled. Sure- why not. I wiped the dirt and dust off of them and oiled them up.

    They look great cleaned up, like the table top.

    The table will replace the nice one I already have in the entry dining area, largely because it is larger and ideal for spreading large board game boards upon.

    I’ve been edgy a lot this last month. I made a list a few weeks ago of items in my life I needed to deal with, most of which will cost me money. They are home-related items, or health related, but the list contains bigger things that I don’t know how most people handle one at a time. They make me nervous, and I guess they have encouraged me to not sit and watch TV as much as I usually do.

    I am finding being productive at home lately both gratifying and motivating, and I’ll try to keep it going and remain more hands on in dealing with items in my life.

    I am also grateful I had the energy and the drive tonight to finish these two projects.

    A web programmer by day, I somehow still spend a lot of time thinking about relationships, God, and the significance of grace and love in daily events. I am old school in the sense that I believe in the reality of sin, and in the need of each human heart for deliverance to the Divine. I am one of those who believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that you can find most answers to life's pressing issues in Him and His Word, the Bible. I ain't perfect, and a lot of the time I ain't good, but by God's grace and kindness, I am forgiven and free.
