It sounds like good progress with the pots, Dorothy, and I remember you talking about those favorite muffins in the past. I'm assuming you'll stash them in the freezer - but wait - didn't you end up with cases and cases of some kind of whole wheat bread a while back? Did you use all of that, or is it forgotten in the freezer somewhere?

I hope the bathroom work is moving swiftly. And a question - if the circuit your computer is on is the same as the bathroom, is it impacted by a GFCI switch? I have a kind of weirdly wired switch in the circuit breaker box that impacts my office. Before this area was a room it was part of the garage and there was a GFCI switch in the breaker box for that area. If we get a heavy rain something about the humidity sometimes flips that outside switch - and there goes the computer equipment operating on the circuit. I finally realized that they didn't put this in on purpose when they remodeled the room, they never changed out the breaker. So, next time the electrician has to come over, I'm getting that upgraded and for more amps.

I postponed the soffit work for ages, but it is finished. I used a combination of wide steel washers and wood screws to push the soffit under the back eaves up into place then screw them with this hardware combination so the screws would hold. The wood is some kind of fiberboard and the screws by themselves just push through it. The washers are for stability. And it is finished for now, after pushing and disturbing dust and what I suspect is mouse or squirrel hair from years past. They live lightly along the inside edges of these planks, probably ingress at cracks near the chimney.
