Friday I dropped off the last bit of paperwork for the wood stove loan. The loan should be finished up next week and then I can schedule the installation for next month. Mom and I went looking for another small Air conditioner at the local home improvement stores. Locally the Big box stores had sold out of the 5000 BTU units but the 6000 BTU was available. So we have a backup that can run via the generators. We have a couple of family members that have suffered heat injuries so even if the power goes out we got them covered for a little while. I would like to add one more of the 5000 BTU Frigidaire A/C for my house next year as a backup or to cool another bedroom.
While we were out we looked at some sink/bathroom vanities that were very reasonable and looked great! I can’t afford them right now but it did give me some ideas about the look I want and the costs. I want to go with a late 1930’s early 40’s look and also get everything setup in case my CIDP progresses. I think it will look great as most of the fixtures from that era are handle types that I can just push rather than twist/pull.
I got the front yard mowed and it went very fast for me. I put the clippings in my new compost pile along with straw, kitchen waste and some leftover rabbit poo from the original compost set up. I love using my little pressure wand for adding water to the pile. It pushes deep into the pile and gets the water down deep so the entire pile gets moisture without a lot of turning.
Dad stopped by and added a some more stacks of wood. I guesstimate we are about 2/3’s of the way done on moving all the wood under the carport. I have been using my little garden wagon to move the wood and it has worked out pretty well. I kind of wished the cart had a wider wheel base as it can tip over easily when full but I’m learning to anticipate that and load it more evenly.
I got all my solar motion detector lights installed. I’ll test them tonight and see if they pick up motion and shine where I want them to light up. I like using the solar lights in the yard as a decorative touch and for security. I save electricity, cut down on light pollution and it looks nice. I have read that cops say motion detector lights work better than always on security lights. Using the smaller solar lights is a win all the way around.
I just heard from SMB and the doc says the skin grafts are looking good and while painful she is doing much better than she expected. The prayers, thoughts and good wishes are working and I really appreciate all who have added my friends to your list of prayers and such.
