Thursday the local power company had a planned outage from 8am until 2pm or later. Seems they had to climb every transformer pole in this service area and flip some switch–the Cowboy thought maybe some of the transformers were accessed with a boom truck but the younger/skinnier of the two lineman who showed up at the transformer pole behind our house climbed the pole–Rather than run the toyhauler generator all day for power we elected to head to Home Depot again—thus our credit card is starting to groan! We found a new front door and security door plus some door locks. We made a quick WalMart stop and also found a restaurant with outdoor patio so Emmi could sit with us while we ate–taking lessons from Nina and Paul! 🙂
Today was the day for installing the largest of the windows we purchased on Monday in Tucson. The Cowboy worked hard all day long finishing the install about 5pm. We are pleased and it helps make that little bedroom seem not so small.
Pardon the trash–Saturday is “go to the dump” day and we will have a truck load!
I was so tired of trying to find my clothes in that toyhauler–jeans, short sleeve shirts, long sleeve shirts, sweatshirts, etc. were all folded and stored in one large cabinet plus the Cowboy’s jeans were mixed up in that mess too–no shelving, just a big open cabinet. What a mess! Today I visited the new Dollar General purchasing bins with lids–I sorted all the clothes and pushed the bins under the couches of the toyhauler–not pretty but at least I can find something to wear!
Can you believe the Cowboy is hiring someone to finish our drywall???–he had a lot of encouragement/nagging from his wife–I just didn’t want him breathing that dust! The guy is scheduled to come in just over a week so I’ve spent time moving what I can out of the guest house. Supplies were stored in two attached to the wall desk/cabinet combinations–I moved all those supplies to the main house then we disassembled the cabinets/desk and moved those too. The closet was FULL of boxes of our belongings from the North Ranch house–photos, wall art, decorative items, table wear, etc.–those boxes all went to the main house too. The drywall guy is going to do one half of the house at a time so we can continue to work on the other half.
Words of warning–don’t forget to take your credit card from the chip card reader and have text alerts on your phone for every time someone charges to your cards!!
