It’s Been About a Month

Since we moved into our Mariposa house, and here’s what we’ve been doing . . .

*** WARNING: Incredibly Domestic Material Follows. ***

REPLACED A BATHROOM SHOWER LIGHT

Seriously, reach up in the shower and zzzzap!

HAD OUR FURNACE REPAIRED ONE COLD NIGHT

It was night. Our furnace wouldn’t start. It was getting colder and colder.

INSTALLED A PULL UP / PULL DOWN CELLULAR BLINDS

We just ordered one to see if we like it. We do. Ordered three more blinds for the living room.

TRASHED A NEW WALL OVEN

Actually, the shippers damaged the oven, not us. The top control panel should be straight up, not bent back, and not shattered either. We got our money refunded. Next stop, Lowes.

DEMOLISHED THE SHED

Our big, ugly backyard 8′ x 10′ metal shed that was blocking what little light we get . . .

    Went through one of those nights recently where I wasn’t sleeping much and kept wondering why it was so cold.. duh.. no heat. It was fixed the next day. I had a little ceramic space heater that threw off just enough heat to keep comfortable in the meantime.
    Thank you for all the interesting news tidbits.. good to see what your new domicile looks like. I think Flirt likes her new bed.. and oh so close to Tom.. sweet! Mary
