I was cool and fixed the drip on the kitchen faucet. First, the hex screw on the level was super-stiff. Next, I the cap was stuck, so I had to dissolve the minerals with vinegar. Finally got that off. Next, the repair kit was missing a washer. Dang it. To hardware store and back. Next, I reassembled. Everything worked find except for that danged hex screw. Get that screw back on took me more time than fixing the faucet.
Anyhow, faucet now fixed.
I also picked up a new circular saw blade. This was a matter of safety. The stock blade sucked and stuck. The new blade, with carbide tips, sliced through hickory like butter. Great stuff. I used it to create some hickory boards. That was a well spent $15. Now all I need to do is figure a better way of cutting boards.
The grandparents (Jen's mom and step-dad) came down over the weekend.
Carved a pumpkin today. Hers Truly drew the face and I carved it out. Great fun. And I made some great pumpkin seeds as well.
I did much baking. In addition to pancakes, I made a run of muffins and a run of scones. Good stuff.
