Same Room?

Same room just a lot of stuff gone to the mission - bye bye. Now I can reach the shelves - oh no, that means picture sorting - well I was due for a slow down on the cleaning any way. At least you can walk in there now and even see a bit of my desk top.

Cable man was here today - disbite my telling him it was more then likely on the pole outside he found the problem of our fuzzy channels inside in the cord hooking the VCR to the TV - smart man - didn't listen to me. He was nice enough to put in a new stronger cable and all the fuzzy channels are clear now. Don't know how much that is going to cost. We just recieved our electric bill and Steve went into shock - according to it we used 49kwh last year same time and this year we used 67kwh. Steve thinks it is wrong but I think it might just be right because of the heat the A/C has been working more.

Right now I am waiting for the land lord's man to return with the part for my stove. He thought it was going to be something simple like just plugging it back in - this time I was right the part is burned and the wire is burned off the connector. Get that fixed and I will have had a pretty full day.

My Mom is doing fine - no more pains. My sister planted the Luna Hibiscus she brought to the hospital with the other ones she had already planted and did I mention that she put wire cages around them hooked to the fence so my over zealous brother in law won't mow them down. Mom has a self propelled lawn mower and it is too slow for him he pushes the thing. At least Mom's weed eater is broken so he can't weed eat the new flowers down.

I used to put a little fence made out of sticks I found in the yard around my plants so they wouldn't get weedeated down. It worked and also I kept the sticks picked up out of the yard.

I was glad to hear that your mom was doing ok and I hope she continues to recover.

I'm sure you are patting yourself on the back for getting that room cleared out and the stuff to the mission. It feels so good to get rid of clutter and it accumilates so easily, that we don't notice it until we can't stand it any more.

Glad you got your cable fixed. Fuzzy channels are so frustrating.

The room looks great!
