And it only took me a month.
Big Brother sent me this lovely 12v undershelf LED back in mid-September, when I was by no means ready to hang up shelves. I carefully put it and all its plumbing in a plastic bag so it would be completely safe, and then hid the bag most cleverly.
I have searched for it for weeks. Believing it had to be in the powershed somewhere I moved another project forward which involved emptying the powershed almost entirely, firmly convinced that the plastic bag would surely be shaken loose at some point in the process. I was right about the first thing, wrong about the second. The bag was actually in plain sight on a shelf 180o from the direction of my attention while working on the powershed. I just this morning found it, quite accidentally, while looking for some small screws for another purpose entirely.
This LED, unlike the identical one that lights my kitchen corner, has a dimmer. So I can use it at night or first thing in the morning without being blinded more than I already am and/or committing to being fully awake. Actually I think it’ll spend most of its time cranked to its lowest setting, but time will of course tell.
This was really starting to bug me. I feel much better now.
