Datsun Cover

I finished making a cover for my Datsun today. It's made out of the tarpaulin I bought that was part of a car port. The carport blew down in a month, so I'm glad I've been able to get some more use out of it. It's secured at the bottom with elastic. Not the prettiest, but it should do the trick. The guy who sold me the Datsun (Rob) has been given me automotive lessens, and from the info he gave me I was able to realise my Toyota needed Coolant (the water had gone brown), so I asked around, googled and YouTubed, and then flushed the old water out of the radiator and refilled with coolant. I'm really keen to learn more, but I realise there's so many things I'm trying to learn that in themselves take a lifetime:
Knitting and crochet, pattern drafting, web design, gardening, and now automechanics. In fact, I'm sure there's a few others I've forgotten. It's kind of ridiculous and probably a big waste of time, but I can't help get infatuated with different topics so I can't stop. I'm totally a "Mr Toad of Toad Hall" ie. one infatuation after another.
Lucky for me I've just learnt a valuable lesson which I hope will pay off in the end. Live your daily life, and just offer it up to God for Him to use. Washing the dishes. Doing the vaccuming. Making dinner. And for me... studying some random topic which I'll get bored with tomorrow.
