I am not sure if this is covid fog or pandemic burn out. I picked various hobbies throughout pandemic to keep myself crazy busy. First I was gardener extraordinaire and then I was extreme DIYer.

Any recommended hobbies I should pick up which forces me to challenge myself.

Anywho pictures from my bath Reno which I did myself last Jan.

This is F, fish (not sure if this matters)

Do you live somewhere cold? I’ve been learning to make leather/fur items. Have done moccasins and just finishing beaver fur mitts. All designed and stitched by hand.

Yep! A leather-specific needle and some good protection on the fingers (Even then you’ll stab yourself). We bought sinew for thread as well for durability. Bill worby furs in Manitoba does online ordering and we looked at a place in Quebec but haven’t bought any there yet. At least 1.5 large-super jumbo pelts are needed for one set of mitts.
Otherwise we just used YouTube and some online reading for patterns and tips.

All wood would be weird. Never said it needs to be all wood, but the white doesn’t contrast well. Consider changing the white for a warm color.

Caught covid and 1 week in. I'm very fortunate and my symptoms are relatively mild. I took the Regeneron antibodies and it does certainly seem to be an amazing treatment. As I have learned more, it seems that everyone I can find who took it has experienced fewer and less severe symptoms and a shorter duration overall. I have also been a strict and aggressive vitamin regimen from day 2.

If you catch covid, I encourage you to speak with you doctor about this quickly in the process.

Good luck!
