OK, so Sunday had a fair bit of the Monday nature; started out with a worse-than-usual morning sinus headache, plus queasiness (seems to be something going around) that stuck around all day.
This morning, feeling moderately better, but not enough to drive to morning walkies (and besides, it's a mite blustersome out there, and supposed to rain significantly again soon). Go for a little stroll around the neighborhood, then back home.
Time to test a concept. This involves soldering a SOT-23 into a SOD-323 footprint. Need to put a solder blob on the drain pin in preparation for this. Need to hold the SOT-23 while I apply the solder blob. Having insufficient appendages for the task at hand, I head out to the garage in search of a hæmostat.
And speaking of drains....
Drip. Drip. Drip.
Uh-oh. Yup, the drip is indoors. Fortunately, it seems to be mostly landing on a box of junk destined for recycling (by way of a light fixture, so I'll need to beware of electrical residue when the water dries up; see also Friday's remark regarding newt noses).
Put shoes back on. Grab ladder. Look at garage roof: yup, it's a lake. (This is California. Garage roofs are flat. I grew up in an Eichler; the roof over the bedrooms was flat.)
Grab pushbroom. Clamber up to roof. Find downspout: totally clogged. Remove cloggage. Sweep much water over the edge. Find the leak, so I can patch it next time there's a break in the rain. Meanwhile, rain has resumed, so time to go indoors. (I think there's some wet roof patch in the bicycle shed, so maybe I can do preliminary patching this afternoon.)
That's the day so far, and it's not even lunchtime yet.
Update: Afternoon break in rain. Find can of wet-or-dry roof cement. It's rusted, and the solvent has evaporated, and there's a puddle of very thick goo in the bottom, with a putty knife immobilized in it. (Not too surprising, given that I last used it before I had the roof replaced, long enough ago for the warranty on the garage roof to have expired, though the house roof should have another couple of decades on it.) Put rusty can in household-HAZMAT pile, for laters.
Off to Home Despot. Find roofing stuff. It comes in tubes now! I don't have to buy a gallon can ($$$)! Grab a tube of "extreme wet roof patch" or whatever. Ask someone where to find caulk guns, since I don't remember for sure where mine is. Also pick up a few disposable plastic putty knives.
Up on roof. Figure out how caulk thing works (messily; I didn't realize at first that, behind the spout that gets clipped, there's quite a sturdy seal). Get as much as practical into the gap, then goober a bunch over it, and along the seam in that vicinity. Smoosh down with putty knife. Then use up the rest of the tube on the remainder of the seam, Just Because.
Make a note to get a gallon of aluminized roof coating, next dry (and preferably warm) spell, and paint over all the seams up there.
