They showed up yesterday. I was so excited, I almost ran over and hugged them. They were strange fellows. They didn’t talk much and wouldn’t make eye contact. They got the sewer in and said, “We will be back tomorrow to do the water, if it doesn’t rain.”
Kip stood outside all morning waiting. The temperature was not very comfortable inside.
It didn’t rain until 1:00 pm, today. It didn’t rain hard until 4:00 pm. Kip enlisted the aid of a guy from our church, who knows his stuff as far as plumbing is concerned, and they worked all morning on the house-side of the connections.
Yesterday, however, we also got the satellite service transferred, so we have television and the concrete guy came and cut a couple of feet off the driveway.
Remember the retail therapy I told you we did on Monday? Well, three bar stools and three counter stools got there today. Kip had to do some assembling. He has assembled so much furniture in the last thirty-seven years, he has collected 38 allen wrenches. They always come in the box with anything that needs put together. We also got the headboard. I had to leave to get back to the RV to walk the dogs, so I didn’t get to see how everything looked when he finished. I’ll take pictures tomorrow.
I unloaded boxes and put things away, today. I still have too much and I don’t like the “too much” look, anymore. Tomorrow, I will decide on what will stay and what will go. I will take pictures before and after and you can help me decide. That will add some fun to it.
We’re still looking forward to the day we can sit by our fire pit on the porch and watch the grass grow.
We will not get water tomorrow, because it’s supposed to rain again. There is no rain in the forecast for next week. I’m not going to despair, you all. I am sitting, right now, in a perfectly nice motor home with Cyndie sitting beside me. She’s in MY recliner. I’m at my makeshift desk with my laptop. My feet hurt and I’m tired, but on the plus side, I have reached my goal of over 10,000 steps every day for over a week, so I’m getting fresh air and exercise.
Stay tuned for pictures of the decor…
