The last few days have been busy and we’ve accomplished quite a bit. We decided to downsize with regard to the microwave. We’ve had a large Panasonic, 1,250 W since 2010 and we don’t really use it for cooking, mainly for reheating left-overs. It’s quite large and takes up a lot of room and weContinue reading “Hump Day”

I started the next colorway on the cowl and our electricians came out today and located the problem with the breaker box in the garage. It’s nothing that can’t be fixed fairly easily, basically connecting it to the main breaker box on the side of the house the way it should have been done whenContinue reading “Productive Day”
Where Did My Day Go?
Didn’t sleep well last night. Ended up falling asleep in my recliner after a late breakfast and slept until after 3 pm this afternoon. Wow. I’ve been one step behind all afternoon, it’s 9:45 pm and I’m not sleepy. Brad’s gone off to bed and I am done with TV for the day. I’ve readContinue reading “Where Did My Day Go?”
Storms Have Arrived
This was the view out of the living room window at 4:15 this afternoon. It’s 7 pm now, dark, and the second round of storms has arrived. We got some work done in the garage today, moved some things around, blowing the dirt and debris out. We were finishing when the worst of it hit.Continue reading “Storms Have Arrived”
After our chiropractic visit this afternoon…we’ve switched to afternoons instead of mornings…we stopped at our local Home Depot for a couple of things. We found what we need to replace the old line on the clothesline poles and we decided on a deep freeze for the garage. We found a 20 cu ft Frigidaire thatContinue reading “Productive Day”
The Last Pine Tree
We had a phone call bright and early this morning and Steve and the crew were headed our way. He felt that the ground would be firm enough to get the pine tree down. He was right! They are hauling the cut up sections down to a brush pile to get them out of theContinue reading “The Last Pine Tree”
Happy Roc Day!
Today is Roc Day, or St. Distaff’s Day. Time to get back to work after the Christmas holiday. I still have an ounce to spin to finish the first bobbin of BFL/Tussah Silk I’ve been working on. I’ll stick to that for the time being instead of ‘sampling’ a different fiber for the fun ofContinue reading “Happy Roc Day!”
Where Did My Day Go?
It’s closing in on 6 pm here and I can’t believe the day is nearly gone! Wow. We’ve both been busy all day, went for a walk after lunch and worked around the house this afternoon. Neil came back for one last thing that was in the ‘get rid of it’ pile near Brad’s ManContinue reading “Where Did My Day Go?”
11th Day of Christmas
Getting close to the end of the 12 Days of Christmas! Epiphany is January 6th and Roc Day will be January 7th and I’ll get back to spinning. In the meantime… B.J. is hard at work loading the huge pine logs into a trailer to be hauled off. Well, actually…he already sent one load offContinue reading “11th Day of Christmas”
6th Day of Christmas
The clouds have cleared, the sun is out, it’s 51° and looks to be a gorgeous day. We had a young man out yesterday to talk about getting rid of a pile of mulch and more than a dozen large sections of pine tree trunks that have been piled on the north side of ourContinue reading “6th Day of Christmas”
