The refrigerator fan (between the freezer and the cooler) that keeps the non-frozen food cool has died. It happened before, maybe a dozen years ago, so I recognize the signs. I've turned it into an "ice box" with lots of containers of ice (some manufactured for the occasion in the new big freezer) and this morning it's at a "normal" fridge temperature, but nothing is in there now much that I'm using. I crammed most of the fridge stuff into a small bar fridge which is now probably freezing a lot of the contents.
Monday afternoon the Sears repair guy will appear. I filled out the form online saying I haven't been around COVID-19 and I'm feeling good, but then I need to let a stranger into the house to work on the fridge. [sigh]
The fridge is 18 years old, and it might be more prudent to replace it, but THAT is a nightmare in this day and age and delivery is only to the door and would take weeks. And the repair should cost less than a new fridge, but you never know. If I decline the repair it will cost me the $99 service call.
Still making masks; it goes faster now that I've put my mother's previously purchased but never used good rotary cutter to use, and that the process of making bias tape is completely understood and goes pretty quickly. I can make enough now for about four masks at a time. I distributed a bunch of masks this week and now have a few more. I'll poke around and see who in the neighborhood needs them.
