It’s been a whirlwind week. Monday I met with former work friends for lunch and did a lot of catching up. I also hosted at dVerse for the prompt about Uvalde victims. Finally, I called and had a lawn service nearby come out and mow the tall, tall grass, as the mower will be in the shop for at least a couple more weeks. It looks great.
On Tuesday I went to my dream class and was helped to sort out a real whopper of a dream I had. After that I headed out to see my mom. Nothing happy to report there — I could write a book from things that have transpired between March 1 and now.
On Wednesday, I had a wonderful lunch with another former co-worker. She has her finger on the pulse of what’s happening in our city so I always tap her for information. Wednesday night I played an online game with my two sons and my daughter in-law, which is a weekly occurrence these days.
Yesterday morning I went with two friends on a leisurely bike ride around Spring Lake. It took us 2 hours to go 12 miles that included lots of wonderful curves, inclines, and declines, while catching a pleasant breeze from the lake. We saw so many pretty flowers, shrubs, trees, and even a sleeping turtle on the path. Last night when I went to take a hot bath, there was no hot water. All of that 3+ loads of laundry with hot water during April took its toll on the water heater that is less than 4 years old.
Today was supposed to be a day of creating collages, but instead it was spent running errands and waiting for the plumber to call. He’s here now and thankfully it is just the element that burned out and it is covered by warranty. When the water heater was installed, the company brought their own chosen electrician to run the new line for it as it was moved to a different location and was way bigger than the first one. The plumber today said that the circuit breaker is only designed for 20 amps (?) but the water heater runs on 30. Looking at the paperwork from back then to see why it was installed that way it was discovered that any mention of the electrician wasn’t on the sheet. This means I have to hire an electrician to come in and look at the setup and let me know if that circuit breaker can be shifted (not sure terminology) or if I need to downsize the water heater. The plumber is just now wrapping things up and the total cost…… $0! How often does that happen?
I’ll be working (playing) on collages tonight and tomorrow during the day and again on Sunday.
It’s been a busy and fun week. Following are pics and videos from here and there.
