Still pecking away at this moving thing. I finally feel as though I am "owning" the K. Today R helped with some chores I could not manage, fixed a leaky faucet and took a hard look at the non-functional dish washer - a Bosch. He was told it leaks so he pulled out the dead gasket and googled about a new one, And cleaned up the interior, then started on the oven!!! I love that he loves cleaning things! It is often too much for my right shoulder.
Meanwhile, Ephraim worked on connecting the wifi and looked at connecting to a TV - need special cable; E will find it. E also extolled the virtues of my new phone, hooked R's up to the wifi and tried to hook it to Bluetooth to no avail. Then we went to lunch and R took E back to the city in his truck. Hope R returns for more progress.
Yesterday, my main task was applying Murphy's Oil Soap to the antique spool bed, not an easy task with all the crannies. It looks SO much nicer! The wood was thirsty! Still need finishing. Took some stuff to thrift shop. Still more to go.
I am still looking forward to the time when - bed assembled and frig in place - we can actually LIVE HERE! Last night R came in his truck and we went to the music in my car and directly back to the city, leaving truck - IT slept here! This am, picked up E in city and came here.
Still hoping for final washer and dryer connections to be made! The bathtub is getting full of washing to be done.
R brought us a large, nice looking, early Canadian looking piece of pine furniture, with six good drawers and a two door cupboard section. We agree on putting it in TV/sewing room for fabrics etc!! WOW! I can empty the plastic bins and sort out the wheat from the chaff! After I bring them down from Beaver in the spring.
And we have another mascot. We talked about getting a dog for the yard but ... A nice black and white stuffie named Bowser has a spot on the hearth. The best sort of dog - for us!
Only -1C and sunny today!! And over two feet of snow on yard.
