I'd like to get back to the point that I'm regularly using tools to accomplish something directly useful, rather than using tools to fix other tools. The handle on our ax recently broke, and eventually I replaced it. The new handle lasted about 20 strokes before it too broke. Now I'm back to sanding a second replacement handle to get it to fit. Meantime we replenish the wood pile with wedges and a sledgehammer. The wheel barrow was, in fact, successfully resurrected and put to useful purpose (hauling firewood) so there, at least, we've made progress.
I'm grateful for sharpening stones, oils in their various forms, and most of all today, a Day of Rest.
