We have a working washing machine again! 😀 This is the new panel he put in. All of this is behind the touch screen in front. At the far end is the power button, then where the knob pops on, the start/pause button, and then the controls for temperature, spin and soil. There is no … Continue reading Fixed!
This afternoon, with the help of a daughter, we hung the replacement door back up onto the newly painted frame. We lined the hinges up with where they were before, except further in as far as we could go. Just to be on the safe side, my daughter held the door in place while I … Continue reading Progress: the sun room door is don… AAAAAAaaahhh!!!
With the chillier temperatures, it's really not a good time to be painting outdoors, so I made a point of starting right after doing my morning rounds. This way, it could have the whole day to cure, and I could decide on whether I wanted to do a second coat or not. The top is … Continue reading Sun room progress: door frame painted
It has been a rather productive afternoon! The first order of business was to test out my new tool on the sun room door frame. I had gone into town to look at mini planers, but while perusing my options, I chose this tool, instead. It's a shaver. The shaving plate looks rather like a … Continue reading Progress: sun room door frame, and bird feeder support post
The replacement door to the sun room is back up again! Of course, things went wonky in the process. At this point, I expect nothing else! I don't know if you can tell, but we ended up adding yet another piece of wood under the bottom hinge. The gap there was still massive. And yet, … Continue reading Replacement door: hung
You know, when the outer door on the sun room finally broke, we thought replacing it would just be a simple matter of switching out one door for another that we salvaged from a shed. How wrong we were! There were a lot of things we discovered along the way that complicated things. For those … Continue reading Replacement door: sun room door frame progress, and washer surprise
"Only" 10 yard cats showed up for breakfast. 🙂 This morning, after doing my rounds and feeding the felines, I headed into town to run a few errands. This included stopping at the post office in our little hamlet. Which is also a liquor store. I bought a whole lot of wine. Or, should I … Continue reading Got a new toy, and dealing with unexpected issues
A whole bunch of little things happening today. The kitties were happy to see me this morning! 😀 I did find the missing food container that had been in the entry to the cat house. It is, indeed, still in the cat house, but somehow got dragged well into the main space, in an area … Continue reading This and that
Last night, I finally had a chance to clean up and move out the temporary fire pit I'd set up to burn things that wouldn't fit in the burn barrel. It was too dark for photos at the time, so I went back this morning. This is where it had been sitting, and you can … Continue reading Temporary fire pit, finally moved!
With yesterday's rain, it wasn't until today that the rain barrel set up by the squash beds was dry enough to try patching again. The silicon sealant is white, and so is the Plasti Dip spray, so it's hard to see! Especially after I spread the sealant into the cracks. Hopefully, this will do the … Continue reading Garden rain barrel; redux
