I spent much of today rewiring the house (with my dad’s assistance, or, more accurately, I was assisting him). Lots of drilling, crawling in the basement, getting dusty, trying not to inhale fiberglass insulation. I found it quite fun, but it’s not a usual thing for me, which I suppose makes a difference. But there was something exciting and satisfying to that kind of work—a nice combination of manual work, and basic network set up of a sort familiar to me. Satisfying work is satisfying.
