I had plumbing troubles last week. Big ones that involved bringing in excavators and replacing big pipes. And smaller ones that stopped the shower from draining.
I had to hire help for the first kind but for the shower, I went to the hardware store and bought a new tool — a plumbing snake — and fixed the problem myself.
I love tools.
I have strong feelings about many of the tools I use. As a maker, these tools are almost as meaningful to me as the things I make. I created #toolsontuesday to keep up the practice of sharing stories about the tools we use and live with.
Every Tuesday, I share one of my favorite tools. I hope you'll share yours in the comments — it feels good to honor these everyday objects.
