If anyone's looking for another way to cheer oneself up, I'd propose pounding t-posts. Or at least, pounding posts can bring you completely into the here and now, which for me is something like cheering.
|So many t-posts! And just enough time.|
The t-post pounder is one of those tools that is amazing in its simplicty. How many thumbs got pounded along with the t-posts before someone thought this thing up?

Once all the posts were in, all I had to do was start the weave: passing the twine back and forth at each plant. On the return trip, I switched sides. A final tug, and the plants suddenly stood upright.
