Well, hello again.
Didn't write the last couple of days. Sorry about that. Tuesday night I turned in early because Wednesday morning, early, an electrician was gonna drop by to do some work here. He didn't show up at the last minute. Wednesday night, the hours melted away, as they do, and nothing got done, including a blog post.
The electrician finally showed up Thursday afternoon. The outside electrical outlet has been cutting out; the man who built the deck last year complained his power tools kept shorting out the outlet. The electrician discovered that, yes, the outlet was on its way out. Water was getting to it, and he showed me where the electricity had damaged it. He replaced it and the cover as well. Works perfectly. I also had him install a second outdoor outlet, which also works great. I should have done this years ago. And the price was actually quite a bit less than I expected it to be. I was very pleased with his work.
I have spent quite a bit of money on the house in the past 10 months. A tear down and take away of an old shed. New rear deck. The side steps were refurbished. And the new doors and windows throughout. And the work done on Thursday. It was quite a bit of money, but I got a lot in return for the expenditures.
The next thing is pressure washing. I need to find someone who does that, as the rear of the house requires it. After that, it is past time to stain the front veranda, the side steps, and the new deck. There is always something to do when you have a house. People who rent think we have it easy. They are wrong.
It is past midnight. I think I will turn in.
See you tomorrow.
