Okay, I am not a happy camper right now. My daughter and I had started to do the evening watering, and she was at the tomatoes when she saw something on the concrete steps outside our dining room door. We currently have our umbrella tree sitting there, and she saw something go behind the pot. … Continue reading Nooo!!! These critters have got to go!
You see this? This is why I'm paranoid about tires. Actually, I'm paranoid about vehicle break downs and troubles in general, but especially about tires. My mother's car got all new tires after we didn't hit a deer, a couple of winters ago, and drove through a ditch, instead. With how infrequently my mother's car … Continue reading This is why.
I took my mother's car out to run some errands. This just happened. I am now on the side of the road, waiting for CAA. It was very difficult to explain to the person how to find me. She couldn't even find out little hamlet on Google maps. I have no idea what I hit … Continue reading Really?!?!?
It's past 1 am as I write this, but I just had to. I went down into the old basement to treat the hot water tank with hydrogen peroxide before going to bed. This is what I found. It's leaking! (That ring of minerals on the concrete is not new; it's been there since the … Continue reading Are you kidding me??
There is a reason I'm paranoid about vehicles, but really??? When I was driving to town, then my mother's, then home again, the van was doing just fine. I drove into the yard to unload, then left the van there until it was time to pick up my daughter from work. The giant puddles of … Continue reading Are you kidding me?
We've had a bit of progress regarding our septic pump problems so far. This morning, bathing involved using basins, then tossing the water outside. Meanwhile, I did my rounds, as usual. Check this out. See that dark spot in the middle of the bird bath? That's water that isn't frozen! 😀 Some of the water … Continue reading Morning progress
This evening, I got a call from my brother, saying he would be coming over tomorrow to install the new well pump he found for us. Yay! He would need to pick something up along the way, though, and could I get measurements of the pipes for him? So I went into the basement to … Continue reading Seriously???
My hip joint, that is. I have been feeling pain in my left hip for some time. I got X-rays and they found the beginnings of osteo-arthritis, which is not surprising, but also bone spurs, which explained the pain I was feeling. That pain is pretty much always there, but not very severe. About the … Continue reading Feelin’ hip
Last night, we did indeed get an all out thunderstorm with pouring rain! It was fantastic! At one point, I was hearing things hit the window that sounded like hail. Our van was in the yard, to make it more accessible for my husband to get to his appointment, but he ended up rescheduling the … Continue reading In the Storm, and … really??
I can't believe it. I thought for sure, after I finally got the paperwork I needed to transfer my driver's license, and actually GOT my temporary license, I was done. It was over. But noooo.... That would make life too easy, wouldn't it? I got a phone call from the office in the next town … Continue reading Un. Be. Lievable. Part 3
