Clean up

Posted on Sunday, August 13th, 2017 at 5:57 am

Been back almost three days, and I am pooped.  Loading and unloading the truck was definitely a major workout.  And getting things in order here is an bigger chore.  I am making progress in the kitchen, I can now cook on the stove top.  I’ll be able to bake and roast as soon as I get the oven working.  For some reason, it doesn’t want to light.  I have a couple of ideas to try.

.

The dew point in the mornings is hanging around 80°F, which is not helping.  That makes for a lot of hit and go effort; work, then sit in the A/C for a while.  Progress is being made, but it’s not quick.  I hope to have everything tucked away in the newly lined cupboards and cabinets by the end of the day.

.

Got a drying rack to augment the washer.  The drier isn’t connected yet, so the wash loads will have to be light and often, one or two changes of clothes per load.

.

Myka has fallen into her routines pretty quickly, adapting to the chaos fairly well.  A gecko has returned to the window at nights, but it’s still a little skittish.  That will change soon enough.

.

A trip to Bryan on Tuesday or Wednesday.  Then I’ll be back there to feed critters in a week while Doug undergoes first surgery on his left eye.  And I need to contact the doctors on Monday to get my appointments rescheduled.

.

I’ll get around to socializing and music eventually.  I’m too nose down at the moment for much but getting the house in order.
