Sometimes I use the screwdriver, the ruler, the scissors and the knife to do handmade things.
I use the broom instead of the rake and the spade to collect the leaves and clean the yard.

We have always used many of the tools in our work. Those are pliers, rulers, utility knives, drills, screws, and drivers. The spanner was mostly used and the rake, spade nail, and hummer were rarely used..

When we moved into our apartment, it was partially furnished so we had to buy some new furniture. My husband and me assembled it using a variety of tools such as spanners, screwdrivers, nails, screws, hammers and pliers. My parents have a farm and I used to go there each time that I wanted to get away from the city's noise and stress. To enjoy the days there and make the most of it, sometimes, I and my mother did or at least tried to do a bit of gardening using a rake, a shovel, a hose, and other tools which I can't remember right now.
