In many places the building codes dictate that once you touch an electrical project you have to bring everything up to code. When I moved in there and remodeled the old garage and put in new plugs we had to upgrade the circuit breaker box and raise the weatherhead (the pipe that the power lines runs to on the house from the pole in back). This work could extend to evenly-spaced plugs on separate circuits for rooms or zones in the house. $$$
Cold weather on the way, so this afternoon I'll try to finish my lumberjack work in the area behind the fence, removing the invasive shrubs and making room for the native species in the undergrowth. Limbs will be dragged to the curb for bulky waste pickup next week. There should be at least one nice weather dog walk this afternoon.
Tis the season of lots of work to do in preparation for the holiday even though it will be spent alone for some of us. Parcels and letters are our way of reaching out.
Time to take some recycling to the village collection point, and supposedly they're recycling cooking oil. I have a pint jar with some that I'll take along and see how they collect it. (Leftover from frying fish--though I think this was set up for larger amounts after people fry turkeys.) Personally I can't think of a more wasteful cooking method than deep oil frying. My oil is from shallow cooking in a skillet and that's bad enough.
