YAY! Dan came out this eve, in the rain but not the freezing rain that was predicted! R now knows what is needed, and can purchase on Monday. Only 2 out of 5 elements were working and the pump that was being nasty is now working just fine. He will have to drain the system to do the installation. For now, the rads are getting warm!

If we had to redo the electric in this house... we would have to sell the house to pay for it! There may be some modifications in our future but minimal- and quietly. When we talk about "maybe we could"... "the taxes would go up!" So... Eventually, the deck will get new decking but no roof.

Pecking away at the woodpile and watching it diminish. We are delighted that a manual wood-splitter R dragged in from somewhere, actually works! I cannot but he can split the too large pieces, of which there are quite a lot.

A couple days ago, I went on line - Canadian Tire - because there was a sale of those glass storage containers and I needed a couple more large ones. I ordered 4 - more than a couple- and, since, found another tucked away. And ordered some extra lids for a dif size, the only ones available. Sometimes the glass part is at a thrift shop without lid so... And looking at what else was available on sale, chose a small kitchen Aid chopper/ puree thingy. Used it today to chop the ginger for my anti-inflammation tea. Wonderful! MAybe next time I will puree it.

I ordered "pick up at store" (10 minutes away), An hour later, email that it was ready to pick up at "Locker". Phoned to see where that was and was assured that if I parked and phoned, they would bring it to my car. But when I got there, on way from un-busy produce store to un-busy grocery, CT was also un-busy so I went in and announced "I need help!" and immediately got shown to the area, a few feet from entrance and a staff put in my security code and handed me packages!

Frig is full again. Heat is perking, wood is moving inward and a load of R's incredibly dirty clothes are now in the dryer - clean! Dishes can wait 'til am. Now, I shall waken R from his 3 hour nap and hope he will eat something and go to bed.
