I am now posting this using our new internet connection! The top speed is supposed to be 10mbps, but the guy says average is 6-8mbps. My husband has a speed tested on his phone. He was getting 14. Yay! We still need to be careful, as our plan maxes out at 100g of data per … Continue reading We have Internet!
During the drive over, our poor jade plant suffered from the cold. Most of the leaves shriveled and before long, entire branches started falling off. But, there is hope for it yet. The Re-farmer
Today will be our third attempt to get internet. The installer should be here within the next hour or so. With the living room carpet done, we have started to put things where we intend them to stay. The tv still needs to be set up again, though that will be changed when our console … Continue reading Try Again
I remembered to get the mail before the post office closed at noon (but only on Wednesdays). A dear friend sent me a package that arrived today. Sweetheart that she is, she included treats for the cats. Mama loves her honeysuckle wood! Lol Definitely the good stuff. Lol There was also some high end cat … Continue reading Care Package
After our failure to get Internet, we decided to head into the next town for some WiFi. Which, for the time of day, meant going to a chicken place for dinner for an hour or so. Which also just happens to be next to a Pokestop. So after we got all our updates, emails and … Continue reading Nowhere to Pokemon Go
So the guy came out and did a site survey. He couldn't get a signal. That spruce grove that protects our home from severe winds and snow build up, also prevents us from getting any signal at all. We would need to get at least a 60 ft tower. Since all our money is going … Continue reading No Internet… yet
Today's big job; we were able to clear half the living room and start shampooing the green shag carpet. When I was a teen, after several hot hours throwing bales, I would come into the cool of the house and lie on the rug. It was like lying on grass. Except not in the sun … Continue reading Looks almost like new…
Traditionally, today is our first day of the Christmas season. We would start decorating the house and put up the tree. All of which are in storage right now. Theoretically, we could harvest a live tree from around the property, but there are enough fire hazards here, already. Since we don't expect our stuff to … Continue reading Happy St. Catherine’s Day
My brother has once again saved the day for us. It's been a day full of activity. The younger of my brothers, who lives by us, came by this morning and took his freezer out of the Old Kitchen (the original kitchen; where the old wood cook stove still sits) to his place. This means, … Continue reading I Love my Brother.
Well, the hot water saga continues. It's gone again. And I don't know why. We had plenty of hot water this morning, as usual, but by this afternoon, it was gone. It's almost 6pm as I write this, and all I've been getting is barely tepid water from the hot water tap. Today was a … Continue reading Then again, maybe not
