Same can be said now for making the odd mistake. It seems I err regularly.
For example, I may have been hoaxed by a Facebook thingy this week, and if that's the case, it's the second time this month I've been duped. All I can say is, I'll try to be more careful, and at least my new rooster ($18 on kijiji) is laying eggs.
I also said - while assembling a new birdhouse recently - that I would 'add a slat roof of barn board or cedar'. But after applying a roof of old pine I felt I should have been in less of a hurry to get done and taken the time to use matching gray barn board. Someone I talked too the same day also said the same thing.
Now, it's not like I won't make another dozen or so now that I've got the hang of it, but I have to resist the urge to use up bits and pieces that I have on hand 'right away' all the time. I mean, I could have used up the bits and pieces later this week or next, because I'm pretty sure I'll be in the shop happily playing with power tools just about every week for the next 30 years.
And that's no mistake.
